I asked because you made it sound like you had a huge amount of knowledge and experience based on those 17 years, but some of your numbers didn't seem to fit. But you explained and everything is cool now.

How come? Oh, I know when to listen to my body and say enough is enough. Is it bad to push myself every week? i don't think so. I make sure my form is good--no jerking of the weight, push from the trunk and head is up.Originally Posted by Eszekial
Sets were as follows:
135 x 12 warmup
185 x 10 warmup
225 x 10 workset
275 x 8 workset
325 x 8 workset
350 x 5 workset
Goal is 405 by end of year.
With those excessive warmups, I'd say you've pretty much got 405 in the bag already.
So how would you do it? Drop the 135 set?Originally Posted by mrelwooddowd
Cut the 135, 185, and 225 sets in half.
The 275, I would do no more than 3.
Then, only single rep sets after that until you're finished.
You're not just tiring your muscles with all those warmups, but your grip is taking a beating after all that bar-time before the big sets.
Are you assuming that I am not using wrist straps?Originally Posted by mrelwooddowd
