    They're good for working your core muscles (as well as your shoulders). Plus, I like to do stuff the other kids aren't.

    Quality work BB. My bench lags as well. Keep the dips and maybe
    add some heavy tri work FWIW. JM presses etc.

    Thanks John. I have thought of maybe incorporating some Close-Grip Presses......or something like that.

    Cheers.

    If an exercise is hunbling it's usually good for you. I think you'll see some carryover to the bench as your dips improve, esp.
    With the added cg's.

    You're right John. The humbling stuff is good for you. Too bad too many guys don't fully appreciate that.

    Keenan - We need to get together for another winter workout.

    Husky - Tanks. 8/4/2 was Shawn's idea. I like it too. Squats & Deads need to get over 300. I still feel like a pussy.

    Shawn - It was just a matter of time.

    Keenan - Week of March 8th sounds good to me.

    Coke - Thanks. I still have a ways to go.

    Husky - Thanks bro. I'm aiming for a PR on my Squats.

    Cheers.
