    feel like I'm going to be in a world of hurt if I keep on wiith strong lifts, too much squatting, too low reps. So far made a lot of gains and fixed form in a lot of lifts, changed the grip in my bench and feel great, but I think 2 months from now shit is going to start snapping.

    I've got mixed feeling about SL. It's just Starting Strength, plus a ton of extra movements that are unnecessary in a single training session.

    In my experiance, the most effective programs I've used have been Bill Star's 5x5, 5/3/1, and Westside Barbell. Of course, there are so many other factors that could had an influence on the "effectiveness" of these programs, namely nutrition and sleep, but that's been my experiance.

    I'm a big fan of 5/3/1, it's stupid simple and gives you room to program your assistance work.

    About 6 years ago I was a 13" drop. It was literally impossible to buy anything off the rack. I'm about a 9 now and I can actually fit into some slim fit shirts that have the correct neck size. Nothing fits ideally, but much better. That being said, I'd still rather have the 13" drop again.

    I've recently revamped my routine to focus more on being in better all-around shape, as opposed to just strength training. I do body weight, high intensity, metabolic conditioning workouts 2 days a week, plus 1 day of pure strength training focusing on Squat, Bench Press and Barbell Rows, and a 4th day of some other activity that would include an hour or so of basketball, swimming or tennis. It's basically a modified combination of traditional strength training and crossfit, minus the inclusion of Olympic lifts into the met-con workouts, mostly because it greatly reduces the chance of injury, and is more applicable to home-based training which I am currently doing. I guess it should be noted that the "body weight" exercises do have exceptions such as a push-press, or a concept 2 row, which use things other than just the body.

    Full ROM dumbbell flyes...don't think there's a single better chest building exercise. I do em flat and incline and have gotten awesome growth from them. Prior to bulk chest was my weakest point...now it's one of my strongest.

    Looking for something to substitute sprints now that it's cold as balls outside, any suggestions?
