    On bench press? Man, I blew it away a couple weeks ago. 315x3, no lift off or spot, full ROM, no bouncing, etc. Going for 325x2 on my deload week (another 1.5 weeks away).

    Today's workout:

    Laying Leg Curls
    Moderate 2x12: 70lbs x 12, 70lbs x 12
    Heavy 1x12: 130lbs x 12

    Barbell Squat
    Warmup - 135lbs x 10
    3 working sets: 295lbs x 10, 275lbs x 10, 275lbs x 10

    Seated Calf Raise
    2 x 20

    Barbell Bench Press
    Warmup 2x12: 135lbs x 12, 135lbs x 12
    Moderate 1x10: 185lbs x 10
    Working set 1x8: 285lbs x 6

    NOTE: Didn't hit my target on this one. Got a little overzealous I guess. Didn't help that my left shoulder was bothering me. Definitely didn't feel 100%. That said, I'll drop to 275lbs next week and try to hit 8 reps.

    Incline DB Fly
    Moderate 2x12: 30lbs x 12, 30lbs x 12

    NOTE: REALLY focused on form and the stretch on this one, hence the lighter weight. I find that with fly's and heavier weight, my form suffers and I really can't control the DB's very well. This is one of those exercises where weight isn't important, or is at least secondary, IMO.

    Lat Pulldown (narrow-medium grip, supinated)
    2x10 - 170lbs x 10, 170lbs x 10

    Note: Went a bit lighter here as well to focus on stretch and contraction. Once in a while I reduce weight by 20-30lbs on various exercises to keep myself honest with regards to form.

    One Arm DB Rows
    2x8 - 100lbs x 8, 100lbs x 8

    Seated Arnold Press
    Moderate - 2x10: 60lbs x 10, 60lbs x 10

    One Arm Preacher Curl
    Moderate 2x10: 35lbs x 10, 35lbs x 10

    Close Grip Push Ups
    Bodyweight x failure - 31 reps
    45lbs (plate on back) x 12

    ^^ after my cut next spring, I will hopefully be bigger than this, and leaner. Naturally. That's the goal. Baby steps though. Gotta reach this level (not that it's anything great) again first, then blast beyond. (no not blast like you guys are thinking... bahaha)

    I store in same places hips ass and midsection i HATE the fact that i have wide hips !

    Yep. Really controlled, slow incline fly's using 30 to 35lb dumbbells, focusing on the stretch.

    Well, that'll definitely work... but not in the cards for me right now.

    Height - fat
    Weight - fat
    BF% - fat

    lol

    Fluctuating between 211-215, still holding at an estimated 16-18%. My body distributes fat in such an odd fashion, I have a REALLY hard time guessing my BF% and should just get pinched. It's weird, because i'm still wearing the same 33 inch waist pants I wore last summer at 190-ish, but the weight is clearly not all LBM, not even close. Idk, we'll see. I have a very tangible goal when I cut next time around - 31 inch waist... hopefully smaller... but 31 will be my smallest ever since being a kid.

    I'm actually doing something a little different. 2 weeks at 10x8, 2 weeks at 10x6, and 2 weeks at 10x4. Progressive loading with high volume.

    I'll pretty much be doing a single exercise for each bodypart though - like Monday, i'll be hitting incline bench press, pull ups, and throwing in decline fly's. Not too bad.

    With that in mind, I may never hit 31" - my hips may just be too wide, structurally. I was made to bear children, just lack the damn uterus!

    LOL.. when i started my cut last october the tape measurement (which is now 33") was 42" .. i wore 38" jeans that i had to use my wifes ponytail holders to run thru the button hole and around the button to hold it together cuz they were too tight to button! LOL

    and i did have a pair of 40's that i remember telling my wife i couldnt believe i was having to buy!

    now i wear buckle 33's (YAY!!!) and i must say i look good in em! my wife even said they "fit me well in the butt" something she always gave me crap about before..

    Yep. You know you'll never compete when your hips are aligned with your shoulders....

    Next year - yes!!! Right now - no fckin way! My cut starts sometime around mid-February. 12 weeks, possibly 16 depending on how I look/feel after 12. But it's gonna be an all-out fat assault... looking to do a very aggressive cut!

    Switched up routines to start high volume training today. Here's what it looked like:

    Warmup: Kettlebell swings - 3x30
    Warmup: Face Pulls - 3x20 @ 50lbs (I use the seated row machine and rope attachment)

    Stretching

    Incline Bench Press - 10x8

    First 7 sets - 185lbs x 8
    Last 3 sets - 175lbs x 8

    Decline Fly - 10x8

    All 10 sets - 25lbs x 8 (very focused on stretch and contraction, slow, deliberate movement)

    Wide Grip Pullups - 10x8

    First 4 sets - bodyweight x 8
    5th set - bodyweight x 5

    Started using weight assist at this point - 40-50lbs assist

    6th set - minus 40lbs x 8
    7th set - minus 40lbs x 6
    8th set - minus 40lbs x 7 (pulled an extra out lol)
    9th set - minus 50lbs x 8
    10th set - minus 50lbs x 8

    Dumbbell Front Raise - 5x10
    light weight (no swinging, etc) - 15lbs x 10 for all 5 sets

    Lateral Raise - 5x10
    again, light weight, focused on form and no body movement at all - 15lbs x 10 for all 5 sets

    #BEATUP!!!

    Yessir!! It's a nice change... and I respond best to high volume training IMO, but man, after a couple weeks you really start feeling wore down!! I'm gonna give it hell though.. this is really my last chance to add mass before the cut early next year. Also upped carbs/calories considerably over the next 6-8 weeks. All in!!
