I hope it never stops! . Legs are one thing I am pretty happy with at this point, I still have some size and hammie improvements to make but as of now I think they are the least lagging. Thanks for the kind words and support, they are very much appreciated!

Your words remind me of the beginning of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF8F84kxksc ( I watch it all the time before I lift)

Thank you so much! I have literally spent over a year focusing on hitting a 315 bench. Hopefully the monster #'s will translate into a monster physique! Make sure to check in this week again, it's max week and I should have some entertaining vids.

It is literally like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders (no pun intended) but there is still much work to be done.

Monday - Upper Power 100% MAX WEEK

BB Bench (Maxing this on thursday)
6 sets 255 x 2

Rack Pullups
bw + 110 x 5 PR
bw + 130 x 5 PR (vid to come)
bw + 130 x 5

Plate Loaded Lat Pulldown really concentrated on using lots of back, slow and controlled
160 x 12
170 x 10
180 x 8

Camber Bar Curls
155 x 5
150 x 5
140 x 5

Cable Curls (obviously the stack is light)
160 x 12
180 x 8
160 x 11

Skullcrushers
140 x 7 PR!
130 x 8 PR
110 x 12

Hell of a day today, lots of PRs! I'm pretty much ecstatic about the skullcrushers as I have never even come close to doing that much weight before. Hail the russian volume and my stronger triceps hah. Rack pulls were very easy too I probably could have done 140 or even 150s for 5 but I'll save that for next week. Stay tuned...Tomorrow 1100 on the machine front squat . It's on!!!
