I like doing pull downs and pull ups with a thumb less grip.

I do back stuff 2x a week. I'm trying to do some chest stuff 2-3x a week as well since my back grows way faster. I'm trying to do 2x as many chest exercises or reps as back to focus more on chest.

Doing a bunch of shoulder strengthening in order to avoid any issues.

Have also started up doing a lot more bi and tri work, more bi though, because guns. Want to add as much as possible in 2 months. Hopefully an inch though it's unlikely.

Maybe have 1 heavy session, 1 high reps/2-3 sets and 1 with multiple sets with medium intensity? Just a thought.


yeah this is basically what I've been doing.

Cheers guys.

im currently doing a home made upper/lower split. However, the "lower" session usually is more or less dead lifts and possibly variations thereof. I consider taking out back (mostly different forms of rows and pull downs) from the "upper" and put it in the "lower" session" to even out the number of lifts/exercises between the two. Any obvious pros/cons? When i tried it, i realized my grip is really tired from the deads which had a bad effect on the rows, but perhaps manageable.

Use chalk/straps when your grip gives out.

^^ I always use chalk for the deads, doesnt prevent hands from getting tired...

I did pull ups every day over the summer when I was lighter, like 150 a day. All kinds of grips and rings too. Got up to like 40kgx8 weighted and 25 bodyweight. Obviously my recovery is a little enhanced, but with lower intensity you could probably do pull ups everyday fine. It put a tonne of size on my lats.

"greasing the groove" for pullups works very well, do a bunch of sets every day where you stop 2-4 reps before failure.

Snatch PR 112kg.... or 247lb for us Imperialists. Went up pretty easy too, might have tried 115kg but it's been a looooong time since my last snatch PR (such is the life of aged weight-lifters) so I wanted to walk out with a solid make instead of a bunch of potential misses. I'm definitely feeling that 115 before Christmas though.

I do a combo of pull ups, chin ups, push ups, chest press, and seated rows 6 days a week when I can. If time permits I add squats, ab crunches, and usually a 1-3 mile warm up run. No problems recently; however, I learned the hard way through many injuries to be meticulous about form.

So this chick always comes in when im bartending and blatantly hits on me. Finally took her home yesterday, she was on her period but let me do her in the butt, pretty nice.

i am primarily looking to build strength and couldn't feasibly hit 235 for 5 so went for 3 as i didn't want to entertain the idea of being pinned in an empty gym.


If you're looking to build strength, why so many sets (and at low weight)? Get warm in the gym and get to 70% weight of what you're trying to accomplish, otherwise you're wasting a lot of energy you'd rather use on the heavier sets.

I'm more of a feel person in the gym, don't really have a number of sets or reps planned. It's a difference in philosophy, I'd feel like i was over thinking it with progression like that (or any planned progression), but that is just me.

Shut up. From your post you obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

Ha, go fuck yourself. Knew it was a mistake to post workout advice in a clothing forum.

The funniest part about this post isn't the fact that a twink keyboard warrior is trying to insult someone that could crush his head between their juicy thighs.

But it's the fact that you called what you typed out.. "advice" lol
