It looks like you dont go to failure on sets, is there a reason for this?

Nope, I haven't been going to failure on most of the sets. I just started lifting again this week from my injury and am starting off slowly, next week I'll start getting more hardcore! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Man, I'm already slacking on this journal.. lol Last Friday I did some legs, consisting of squats, sldl's, lunges and some calve excercises.. I'm gonna be buying some new straps tomorrow, then tomorrow I'll update with a chest/tricep workout. Oh and the diet has been going strong! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

What's your opinion on straps, are they worth using?

If he's buying them, what do you think? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

They have their place, I only use them in trap work to keep going when my grip gives without having to regrip.

Piz - I think they're worth it, it would help me to use heavier weights alot easier w/o using poor form and help hit the muscle you're working better.
Dave - Hah, thanks man. Haven't talked to you in a while, how's training?
