Havent done this routine in a long while, got it through watching Train with Kai videos. My Tri's ache for days and days after this routine. Its actually pretty killer, weights stay low so you can get the reps, full extension and contraction of the muscles. You look like a little girl in the gym doing in, then half way through when your struggling with such light weight you begin to feel like one too. But you feel, well at least I do, great after words!

Once again gym was busy as hell and my normal scheduled routine was completely altered, intended on doing my BB rep routine but the rack was being tied up by two teenagers doing god knows how many sets and slamming the bar down and flexing in the mirror. I waited as long as I could, became aggrevated and hit the dumbbells. Ended up going heavy again this week with the db's, kinda aggrevation relief, felt real good, especially the flat db's, I do believe my next chest routine I am going for the 100's by myself, its just been something that has been eluding me for some time, its only 5lbs more but my wrist;s just dont like it! Either way ended up being a great session, nice pump, and finally getting some vascularity in the upper chest!

If you're getting the 95's x 8, you're probably good for hundo's x 5, maybe sloppy 6 if you're in the zone. That said, I do like a good spotter for the first rep when going up to a new weight on DB's. The same spotter helped me with my 1st rep of 90's, 95's, 100's, 105's and 110's.

Ya unfortunatly I dont have a regular partner, and I hate asking people in the gym I dont know, did that once and almost blew out my shoulder on inclines cuz the guy didnt know how to spot! I have basicly learned to go it alone and not get to stupid. I think if I go in with an attitude I can get them, its the mile stone I have been trying to hit since the beginning of summer and it just continues to elude me! Think its mental now more than anything.

Off for a couple days recooperating after my fuck up on legs last night.....chest again on sat!

Keep an eye out for ppl that know wtf they are doing.  I don't talk to anyone, but I WATCH everyone, so when I need a spot I know who to ask.

Awesoem work with those 95's.

I usually watch a little too, but most people in my gym I dont think I would trust spotting me on a treadmill let alone heavy ass db's, and thanks for the prop's on the 95's!

Ya, I can do 225lb now for 4-6 normally as my last set, I have never really gone for my max 1rm, would like to be able to rep 225 for say, 10-12, then start moving toward some bigger numbers. Im gonna have to figure something out as my gym's DB's only go to 100

A few months back I scored a set of oly dumbbell handles from play it again sports store cause I grew out of the selectable 50# set I had. They are awesome. Maybe hint at the manager to order in a pair for members. I know my DB rows can escalate over 100 if I'm doing a pyramid type program. Mine were $29 each, which I dealt with the sales guy for a pair of them and two 45# plates for a Benjamin. Not often do I get to bargain, but it feels good when I do.

Well I am actually gonna start dropping some hints soon that he needs some new stuff, every member pays a equipment upgrade fee one time a year....havent seen any upgrades since I have been there. Only new equipment I have seen is a ez curl bar rack and bars....other than that NADA! Granted they have replaced a few ripped pads on benches ect but nothing new! We are getting new members all the time so i know they are making money!

Felt ridiculous once I got to the flat DB's, the inclines were heavy, and the 90lb flats felt way heavier than the 100's. I have been waiting to get those 100's for a looooong time, felt great! Not sure if its due to the last few weeks going heavy twice a week or I just had a good day ;D either way I am stoked.

Felt great again tonight, I really think my routine getting messed up by the gym has really helped me by going heavy on the DB's twice a week. I am pushing the 100's fairly well and not having to drop them on the last rep  ;) I may however start trying to go heavy on the BB once a week and see how it feels on my shoulder if the gym traffic allows it. My other new goal now is to push 95's on the incline for 8. Had to raise my voice in the  gym tonight with a Mr Helpfull guy jumping in to spot me, I am a little slow getting the 90's up but I do it just fine, I am 3/4 of the way up he runs in behind me and starts pushing on my elbows and completely blows my concentration >:( Once I he stood the so I said rather angrely IM GOOD! Dont mind someone being helpfull but please dont come running in putting your hands on me uninvited! Only thing I can figure is he saw me helping my friend when he was struggling and thought he would do the same for me, no thankyou.....I appretiate the thought
