    why not do..

    80 x 6, 80 x 6, 8 x 5

    Try something like that...you'll get stronger quicker then dropping down to 70. At least in my experience. Go for your highest weight, and highest reps, always...

    Cause I go 80x6, and I can't get any more at 80, maybe 1 if I was lucky. I'm actually going to bump the 2nd set up to 75 next time though, 70 on the second set was too light.

    for skulls I do them sitting up. I put one hand right against the inside of the weighted part of the db, and the other part of my hand bracing it, so it don't slip.

    Thanks for the compliment...orange is at the same spot too...

    March 6, 2002 Chest and Triceps
    Notes: wooooohoooooooo. Alright, first things first, I did some heavy weights not on first sets today, as is obvious. This was not intentional, I just happened to gain some strength since last workout in several exercises.

    Although I got the 85's for 5 I didn't feel as if I was going deep enough. I definetly went deep enough for it to be considered a rep., but I like going a tad lower than most. Also my left arm was much farther away from my body than my right. On declines the 80*4 set, on the last rep my left shoulder tweaked out so I stopped there, I think I may have slightly pulled my left anterior delt, other than that, all is well.



    Chest:
    DB BENCH: 85*5 75*8 70*7
    DB DECLINE: 75*9 80*4
    Cable crosses: 8*9 9*14

    Triceps:
    Rev. Grip bench pressing: 70*15 90*10 100*6
    Skulls: 90*11 95*8
    Kickbacks: 27.5*7 22.5*8
    1 hand underhand ext: 5*7

    thanx man, I'm sure you'll rebound fast. Try to relax before you go to bed, don't be doing something, and then just jump in the sack..

    April 2, 2002 Chest and Triceps

    Notes: I missed on the 90's, and I was a little hungry at the beginning, quite hungry by the end. Didn't let that stop me from having a great workout though. Tri's are fried again. For the first time in my life I actually feel like I have larger pecs, first time I've felt like I've got something out in front of me..it's a cool feeling
    P.S. reverse close girp benching still creams my tri's


    Chest:
    DB Benching: 90-miss 85*6 75*9 70*8
    DB Decline: 80*6 75*7
    Cable X's: 9*7 8*10

    Triceps:
    Reverse Grip Benching: 110*8 110*5
    Skulls: 95*9

    Flat Bench DB: 90*miss 85*miss 80*1 75*9
    Decline DB: 75*9 80*5
