Dips with +135 isn't nuts.

I was doing that back in the day when I was lighter for sets of ten with 145.

Probably can still do +135 for a several.

I wish I could do dips. Didn't do them for about a year because they made it feel like my pecs were tearing, tried to do one a few days ago, just could not perform the movement.

I can do +135 on dips 2 or 3 times and I don't consider myself particularly strong.

Though I am gonna brag about my new PR today...weighted planks +135 pounds for 1m30s today. smile.gif

Nice work on the plank. Ever try hollow holds?

Hollow holds (and eventually hollow rocks) are GREAT progressions after you've got a strong plank. I've gotten to where I can do a 30 second hollow hold while holding a 10kg plate above my head. I tend not to do a lot of accessory core work, but every once in a while I throw these in to great effect.

It seems like guys who actually lift/ train for strength are way more friendly than the other 80% of people lifting weights. Every time i ask the big strong guys how many sets they have left they are very friendly and almost always ask if i want to work in. When i go up to ask the average "amateur bodybuilder" or whatever most of the time i get ignored, maybe a dirty look and its always "I dont know man, a while?" Why is it so hard to be polite to people at the gym?

There are a hundred thousand exceptions, of course, but it really is an entirely different group of people. The dumbbell curlbros are in the gym with a completely different goal than anybody using a barbell for strength. There's also so many of them competing for the same tbar faceyank machines and crooked crullbars they are probably a bit more uptight. I walk into an empty squat rack at least 66% of the time or better.

I'm continuing to be sick. Wonderful. At least it's my deload week so no big deal.
post #22184 of 48654
Agreed...most people who lift for aesthetics are pretty douchey about it. There's a particular curlbro at my gym who walks around with a ridiculous swag gait, grunts, throws his weights, and mean mugs the fuck out of everyone. Sometimes he'll go up to other lifters and start doing the exact exercise they are but with more weight(with shittier technique, of course)...even if it's something obscure like reverse curls.

Of course duu has like 15 inch quads.

Woke up with visible abs this morning, what was that like 5 days of CBLing? Granted I was already lean, just had a bad bloat going on constantly. And holy shit is junk food expensive, I went grocery shopping to get some proper backload food (fruity pebbles, ice cream, oreos, bananas, etc) and spent $53!!
