peaked a bit early for an upcoming event so Im gonna bag it and do one in early June...I am the origionator of the crazy ass 20 set workout...just finished using 240 and did 10 reps for the first 10 sets, and only faded down to 7 reps on the 20th set..not bad for a 175 pound 50 year old....I'm takin 2 weeks off and will go back down to 205 and work my way back to the 240-250 range for the tourney..pretty confident i should be able to hit 320 for a terminal one rep at the competion.

Doing work.

Hey how many times can you bench 225? Was thinking about this during the recent NFL combine. Some of these giant ass linemen bench 225 30 something times.

Damn, Tron’s been moving some weight. All this time we thought he was some skinny kid--looks like Tron been intentionally sandbagging just for the satisfaction of later saying--what’s up?!! Here's a fitting dramatization.

:lol: :lol:

You always have the best gifs. I'm not there yet but i'm trying to work my way to your power level of 9000.
My friend and I have a goal for the end of the month. We're trying to bench 200 for 10 reps. We may not reach it by the end of the month but i'd say in 2 months we'll get there. My DL form has been getting better in comparison to when i started. After the first DL session i literally had trouble sleeping for a week.

I don’t know my squat--have an old injury that nags if I squat much.

Current bench 375
Current deadlift 455
Not where I was a year ago, but am making progress. Below are days 1-4 after my pec tear.


Holy fuck dude you're a monster!! I'm Jelly. You're definitely one of those dudes i see at the gym and secretly in my head i'm hating (that's a good thing though :lol:) Good shit :tup:

My mind is literally trying to revolve around the idea that you dead lift so much damn weight. Your DL form must be beastly to sustain that much weight.

If you don't mind me asking, what'd you do to your arm?

Yeah. Huge gap in your numbers there


:lol: this was my post. My bench sucks because of issues with right tri due to the fact that I almost had my arm blown off many years ago. I never completed physical therapy because at the time I had just gotten insurance through my job and they could not cover me when I was not working.

Been a bitch getting my right arm up to proper form. But I did bench 190 for 4 reps this past Monday. Over the years it has slowly started to come back for me. But with everything, it takes time.

Nice. Benching is cool and all but it's all about the dead lift :tup:
Keep up the good work but it makes me happy to know we can kind of bench the same weight. :lol:
Your dead lift numbers slay mine though.

I appreciate it. I have been working very hard for a long time. Just started back on free weights first of this year. Built my strength over last couple years doing calisthenic exercises. I got bashed on here for it but they do work. If you do hundreds of push ups and pull ups a week your upper body will develop well. Now i have to get my weak legs stronger, been hitting squats hard for last few months. Trained legs in past but not consistent or properly.

I'm on a similar regimine. I've done tons of calisthenics including push ups and pull ups and recently started benching. I will say that i do feel decent when i lift however, i've only legitimately been lifting for about a month. Hopfully i can reach 10 reps of 185 which is my current goal.

Tronnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn




Low reps if you're trying to push that weight up. 3x5 is proven optimal for strength gains. Goes for squats/deads/OHP/barbell row as well. For major lifts, 3x5 is key. Always do major lifts at the start of your workout.


This is my shit right now. It started off with about 4 lifts a day and slowly added more and more on when I knew I would be able to recover properly to not hinder my gains on major lifts (Squat, Barbell Row, Deadlift, OHP, Bench). But originally it was like day 1 was squats, ham curl, barbell row, pullups, and bicep work. day 2 was bench OHP skullcrushers flyes and calf work, etc.

Day 1
Legs/ Back/ Bi's
4x Squats: 5 reps
3x SLDL: 5 reps
4x Leg Curl: 8 reps
3x Ham Curl: 8 reps
3x Barbell Row: 8 reps
3x Wide Grip Pullups: 8 reps
2x Bicep Work: 15 reps

Day 2
Chest/ Delts/ Tri's
4x Bench Press: 5 reps
3x Military Press: 8 reps
4x Seated Dumbbell Press: 8 reps
4x Flyes: 8 reps
4x Skullcrusher: 8 reps
2x Calf Work: 15 reps

Day 3
Legs/ Back/ Bi's
4x Deadlifts: 5 reps
3x Front Squat: 8 reps
3x Chinups: 8 reps
4x Lat Pulldowns: 8 reps
4x Rear Delt Flys: 8 reps
3x Leg Press: 8 reps
2x Biceps Work: 15 reps

Day 4
Chest/ Delts/ Tri's
4x Incline Bench Press: 5 reps
4x Incline DB Press: 5 reps
3x Chest Dips: 8 reps
4x Dumbbell Row: 8 reps
3x Side Lateral Raise: 8 reps
2x Calf Work: 15 reps

ABS: (Grab any 3 after every workout. Balance areas of abdominal effectively)
Bosu Ball Leg Raises 3x10
Plank 3x 1 minute
Ab Roller 3x10
Weighted Decline Russian Twist 3x10
Dumbbell Side Bend 3x8
Weighted Jackknife 3x8
Weighted Decline Sit Ups 3x8

some tips for squatting:


always go low bar. tuck the bar tightly under your trap. - easier on the back. go as low as possible - your knees will benefit from this greatly. when i first started i barely went parallel and as the weights got higher my knees felt them way more. don't bend your wrists because they will take a lot of pressure - i don't even grip my fingers around the bar, i just push it towards my back to keep it there. always drive with your hips and make sure you keep the weight on your heels and don't transfer it to your toes.


for deadlifts,

starting position is HUGE. make sure the bar is over the ball of your feet. always make sure lower back is tight. remember to sit back before you pull. and when you pull try and pull the bar through your body not just up. when you get to the top pull your shoulderblades back to lock out. you don't have to arch your entire back to lock out. and always always always keep control of the negative. don't be one of those douches that thinks they're powerlifting while deadlifting 300lbs and just drop the weight on the ground. you do lose out on gains from not controlling the negative.
