    Some people do it that way for squats too.....I feel that most folks get more out of doing a heavy 8 repper then a lighter set of 20 unless quads are one of your best bodyparts then it probably doesn't matter which you do...LOL

    My quads have always been by far my best bodypart and I'll decide whether Im gonna go with a 4 repper or a 20 repper after I do my set of 8.....Deciding factors are --how my joints feel that day,where my energy level is at and honestly....what I feel like doing....LOL

    Post workout has to be eaten in the car on the way to work...so I do it as a shake. What kind of complex carbs can I add to the shake. OK..newbie question, I see some people put oatmeal into the shakes, how much can you get into a shake before it gets too thick to drink.
    what I do when Im in a hurry is my PWO shake and a banana sandwich on whole wheat bread....

    Looks OK....Throw a complex carb in with your post-workout meal (oatmeal,whole wheat bread,pasta etc...) so that your blood sugar doesnt crash after that dextrose/malto hits

    Chest - incline smith RP
    Shoulders - smith seated front military RP
    Triceps - close grip RP
    Back width - rack chins RP
    Back thickness - sumo deadlifts 6 rep heavy + 20 rep a little lighter .
    Looks pretty good.Personally I'd change the deadlift reps to 8 and then 4...Hard to keep your form for a set of 20 IMO

    All the RP exercises were done as set of RP, rest for half min, more RP, rest for half min, and then more RP (yeah, like 1 rep). .
    A little bit long on the rest peroids.We go with 12-15 deep breaths in between rest pause sets which comes out to (for most people) 20-25 seconds

    Does this look right? The second tricep exercise I'll do will be reverse grip bench. Any suggestions for a third; I can't do skull crushers (give me tendonitis). What do you drink during your workout; I felt like I needed something other than just water?
    Thanks.
    I'll go with gatorade or powerade either right before or during my workouts

    Please re-read the rest pausing, that's not how we do it. We take a 15 deep breath brake between the mini sets, not a 30 second break.

    Yes I did (or attempted) the extreme stretching. Extreme is a good word for them. Dips sound like a good possibility for a third tricep exercise. How about suggestions for forearm exercises; left elbow gets tendonitis very easily, so reverse curls are out.
