    Guys like that suck! There are times in the past I used to start thinking "hey, I'm getting pretty damn strong" then I hear or see someone who smokes me. Oh well, just keep pushing hard.

    I used to want to hold records (I do own 1 in the NASA Ohio teen division! yippy) but now I'd rather just do the best that I can and beat old personal bests. I think that's the best form of PLing.

    Although it's nice to beat out others! The competitive spirit can get the best of you at times.

    I am extremely competitive by nature, the drive to break records is honestly the only reason I compete.

    315x7 is nothing to go overlooked... That's a serious set. Good stuff Nick

    As far as the lateral raises are concerned whats your view on how they supplement your strength in horizontal and overhead presses? I rate them extremely important for hypertrophy but never felt they had much carry over to a bench or an OH. Do you do them soley for size or do you feel they aid your other lifts?

    Pretty much exactly as you said Rory; I get almost no carryover on any shoulder movements except for actual pressing. I feel like my front delts overpower everything else from benching so I'm really trying to bring the sides and rear delts out.

    First time doing front squats in ages, 390 is a +20 pound pr with just a belt. I'm really having a problem getting a good deep breath with weight that heavy however; 390 felt great but I just couldn't get any air with 400 which pretty much dooms the lift before it even starts.

    Front squat weight is crazy. Your strength is more and more impressive every week and for every lift.

    Not sure if I've asked, do you cross your arms on the front squats or just hold it like a clean?

    Arms crossed. On lighter sets I don't even hold the bar, just rest it across my shoulders/upper chest, lol.

    Had **** for energy today and my shoulders were a little sore so I took it easy and did lots of random lighter lifts. I'm still trying to find a good exercise to hit my real delts with. Tried a new one today using the cables where you start with your arms straight up above your head and then you pull then down laterally till you're in a "t" or cross position. Only problem I had was keeping my palms facing fowards; handles on the machine kept wanting to twist on the way down.

    I've noticed I'm not recovering as fast lately since I've been eating like ****. If I don't mentally track cals during the day I forget all about it and don't eat as much as I should.

    Yeah I wish my gym had one, that's exactly what I'm looking for. There's also an actual rear delt machine where you sit and hold two handles, same motion as the reverse pec dec essentially.

    For rear delts you just gotta play around with manipulating different movements to find one that fits you. The reverse pec deck is one of the best for sure. I don't have one either.

    I've done a rear delt movement on a chest fly machine. You end up facing the pad and place your elbows into the pad. You then continue just as you would with any other rear delt movement, but the weight is sitting upon your elbows rather than within your hands.

    I actually think that is a great exercise for rear delts, but you have to have a fly machine that fits your body (arm length and height) to make it work for you. The one I have access to is broken.

    If you have a basic chest fly machine try to give them a shot. I do like higher reps for rear delts also, so maybe if you play with the rep range you will find something you like.

    I've been trying to work on my posing a little, really only the back shots that give me much trouble since I can't see it until after. I think I'm finally getting my rear lat spread down, just curious what any of you that have competed/plan to compete think. Do I need to drop my shoulders more? It just doesn't look/feel like I'm really getting my lats to pop all the way out.

    Lat spread looks good. Try rounding your upper back over a little and look down and take some shots. Help emphasize my taper, may or may not work for you. Can't hurt to try and check the shots.
