    -working on speed movement with lifts

    I love these, by far my fav

    About right weight

    Push press 4x4 85 lbs
    pretty hard at end

    Flat bench 3x6 155 lbs
    -pretty easy at first, but last set i had to squeeze it out with a lil struggle.

    Incline bench 3x4 135
    pretty hard, last set only got 3 out, usually only use 35's.

    Barbell Curls 5x6 65lbs

    Lowerbody

    Squats 3x5 215 lbs
    -not too hard, could of used more weight if i was just going for 5, but this weight was good so i can kind of explode up, not too easy though.

    Squats 2x1 235
    -a little too easy for 1 rep, my damn sunburn was killing me though and i had to try lessen the weight on my shoulders by using my arms.

    Stiff leg Deadlifts 3x6 135 lbs
    -Was a perfect weight, feel a good burn with these.

    Pulldowns 2x10,8,8 140lbs
    -I did these in a semi squat to keep abs tight, felt a good contraction on every rep.

    Pull ups 2x5 bw
    -palms out, felt a good burn in back, kind of struggled at end though.

    Standing Ham raises 2x10 25 lbs
    -Hard with my machine cuz it doesnt move good but in the gym i can use a lot more weight. Didnt really get a good burn in the right leg, i did with the left though, its hard to find a good weight with these lifts.

    Standing Calf raises with barbell 2x6 185lbs
    -Kind of easy but hard because the sun burn hurt so bad.

    took usuall pw supps
    Overall rating 7/10

    Hooray! Another 5'8"er in the forum!

    I like the rating system, too. Galileo at one point was applying a rating to each section of his journal.

    Oh, and have some
