    Solid effort!

    I don't like to harp on form too much but I think you have more depth in you than that.

    February 5th

    Cycle 8 Chest


    Body Weight 172.2 lbs

    Bench Press
    185x3
    225x2
    255x1 PR
    260x1 PR


    Alright so I don't know if any of you remember but, I have complained in the past about the gap on my bench pad and the head rest. Needless to say it has caused me to set up about two inches further away from the bar than were I need to be. The hardest part of the 260 was unracking it. Anyway my dad and I fixed it today so that alone should help my bench along.

    Incline Dumbbell Press
    25x5
    50x5
    75x12+4+3(15 DB)
    30 second DB Fly Stretch(50lbs)

    The dumbbells am using for 75lbs are ridiculous I have standard plates pinching an olympic 25lbs plate in normal DBs would be cool. lol

    As far as the stretch I felt it more in my front delts, I guess I will try a lower weight next time.

    Skull Crushers
    90x15+7+5(15 DB)
    60 second DB Extension Stretch(20lbs)

    HCT-12

    Workout 1.1

    2-8-11

    Incline Bench
    45x6
    135x6
    175x3
    185x6+2+2+2

    Chin Up
    bw x6
    bw+25x3
    bw+35x6+2+2+2

    Seated Press
    45x6
    95x6
    135x6+2+2+2

    T-Bar
    35x6
    105x6
    140x6+2+2+2

    I don't know if I like these. I'm finding it hard to find a horizontal back movement I like.

    Dips
    bw x6
    bw+35x3
    bw+70x5

    I haven't done these in awhile didn't know where I would be at.

    I decided I didn't have enough equipment to do DC lower days, so I'll give HCT-12 a whirl.

    I like HCT for certain movements, hate it for others. DB pressing is a b!tch with HCT-12 because the re-positioning of the DBs is such a pain in the anus.

    Yeah for things like curls, skull crushers, and calves I might try DC style sets to failure.

    Best to scrap the T-bars if it's the padded variety where you rest on the pad - you don't need any confinement on the rows whatsoever...keep the regular ones if you can, keep hanging tough with 'em.

    Its the kind were the barbell is in a corner. My lats are pretty sore today. I guess what I don't like with rows is the inconsistency in form.

    HCT-12

    Workout 1.2

    2-9-11

    High Bar Squats: 10"
    45x6
    136x6
    205x2 Belt
    215x6+2+2+2

    High bar squats SUCK! lol

    SLD
    135x6
    185x6
    215x6

    This doesn't seem like a good lift to be messing around with clusters, I guess I will just do a straight set.

    One Legged Calf Raises(15 sec)
    bw x25+15+12
    30 second stretch

    Barbell Curls
    45x6
    95x6
    105x6+2+2+2

    Abs
    15
    15

    I started creatine up again yesterday, so my weight should jump up a few pounds. I haven't taken any for about 3 weeks and my weight has stayed the same. 185lbs by my birthday on April 21st sound reasonable!

    Good thinking on not doing clusters on the Stiff Deads. IMO I think it's a little irresponsible for WBB to have not made concessions to the cluster reps for certain exercises like SLDL, rows, etc.

    Yeah for sure we've been lifting long enough to know which exercises to avoid but, I would hate to see a new lifter get injured over something that is easily avoidable. Not saying that its for surely going to get you injured it just doesn't seem like a good idea IMO.

    I think this comment is irresponsible and ill thought out mate. I cant see why they are going to be a problem compared to most other dangerous crap i see in the gym. Poor form is more likely to hurt you than clusters.

    Just my 2c there Chevelle got to disagree this time.

    Anyways nice workouts Drew

    If you are truly doing 6rm on your first set and either going to failure or one rep before perceived failure, doing clusters of the same weight thirty seconds after for exercises like stiff deads or back squats is not a great idea. That's why DC advocates two straight sets there--once one gets up to very heavy poundages on those exercises it's just not a good idea. Obviously it depends on one's exercise selection, but in general for extremely heavy compounds I don't think it's that great.

    In retrospect though, HCT-12 doesn't seem to advocate getting close to failure (again, something I disagree with), so if one isn't lifting close to failure or one rep short on heavy compounds then yea the clusters aren't really "dangerous."
