I know, don't do arms lol. I only do few sets once a week to give arms some isolation, but no longer have a dedicated arms day. They get worked out with back and chest days. I replaced half of my arms exercises with high reps squats. See I learn. I think this is a good hybrid approach.

not that. I do think if I did arms mine would be better but I don't know if that's the case. Many people think you hit them hard enough with my style of training.

I just think that many reps for bi's is overkill.

Yeah. I usually don't isolate arms. But my chest and back are recovering a little still from the weekend. So I figured id hit them.

Re: MpoweredM: Just another progress thread...

Besides the typical Deadlift, pullups, lat pull downs and rows I like:

One arm db rows done nice and slow with solid form

T bar rows

Started a new warm up routine the other day too. I'm doing 10 minutes on the step machine at 60 steps a minute. This has really helped me get into the first lift or two rather than only doing warm up sets.

Did some sumo DLs. Bent over row. dumbbell row, v-bar pull, pull ups, straight arm lat pulls downs, lat pull downs.

I recorded one of my bent over row sets just to see body composition and movement though the pull. I'll post if someone cares to see. Pretty gay and boring though.. this forum should love it. :eels:

Feeling really good though despite waking up every three hours every night to change and feed babies. I wish I could stay longer in the gym. So much more energy.

Sad though, I've really hit a plateau with my weight. I feel my arms, chest and back are slightly bigger. Legs some what too. But weight has changed. I am getting stronger too. I guess I really shouldn't worry about weight.

On the upside, my leg routines have gotten much better, for me, in my opinion. Also, I put on some sweatpants I haven't worn in about a month, and I could not get them around my thighs (i always tie the off around my waist) They tie was still good for my waist, but getting them around my thighs was so difficult. That's a good sign.

tl;dr...

Does this mean you jump right into the work set? If so I don't like it. I think no matter what you need some dynamic stretching.

Nope, I still do warm ups for sure! This just really helps get the blood flowing and gets me into it. Sort of like a meditation phase for the right mindset. I just step, headphones on, no music.

Form starts to break down a tad towards the end, but overall pretty good. You need to remain more bent over.

Back squat
6sets, 5 reps, 225

Hang clean to Front squat
5x5 135
One set of 3 155lbs

Seated calf raises
