Yeah, some times life gets in the way of stuff... I've been fortunate that I've been able to go so often. My work allows me to leave at a reasonable time and the gym is on my way home... plus I've got my kids to start meeting me there too so they're getting into it a bit. My wife is working on it... let's say.

A t-shirt is a great idea.... and a really tiny sports bra for MPF.

I wear size xtra medium to show off the guns.

LOL tiny sports bra AHAHHAHAHHHAHAA

I just forked over $50 for a fancy schmancy one :)

I saw this article yesterday and thought of ya'll...check out the picture..is guy #4 the same as guy #1???

My wife has to often wear two sports bras when she's gonna run... keeps those puppies in place. I keep telling her that a smaller one would be tighter thus work better..

idk if that's the same guy or not... it's possible. He was already in decent shape in pic #1, so it's not out of the question. Could also be some photoshopping...

I wear size xtra medium to show off the guns.

Xtra Medium... coming up.

Working on a proposal now, soon as it's done I'll make a T-shirt design.

PSC, today is chest day for me and I'm gonna try your reverse pyramid thingy... any other tips? How many sets do you do?

I do 3 light aerobic warmup sets, then I dump the weight on there and do 3 descending sets.

I try to do something active every day.

I don't log anything. I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it.

I just move around for an hour a day at the gym

Works fine.

I do log what I eat for the most part...when I stop doing that completely, it starts to show...

having a doggie now that loves to go run w/me helps keep me motivated..the minute I even so much as look at my running shoes...she's on me like white on rice

My dog has learned the difference between the shoes that I run in and the old shoes that I take him for walks in.

OK, I tried this yesterday... it was chest day and the every other one where I do flat bench, so I started with that...

I did two warm up sets of 12 at 135 and one set of 4 at 225 just so I wouldn't just jump onto heavy... I rested for like 4 minutes and jumped on 275. My shoulders did not like it. I did it anyway, and went down from there... did some dips, some decline presses and some incline dumbbells, all heavy, and I'm sore as a mofo today. So idk if it was those reverse pyramids or just the fact that I went heavy on everything... but my shoulders weren't happy jumping straight to very heavy like that, so I may avoid that in the future. I might try it next week on chest and start with incline dumbbells and see how those work with that.

Doing legs today and Back tomorrow, I may try it with back and see how that works. I think starting on the flat bench with it just didn't work for me, but I can see how it's a good pump. It's almost like doing negatives.

I messed up my hand in a car accident the day after Christmas. No breaks but have some kind of tendon or ligament damage - still working with a specialist to figure it all out. As a result, I've had to put lots of weight training on hold. I've been doing regular cardio for two years now to get back in shape and added weight training about a year ago, for tone and moderate muscle gain. Now I can't do anything that requires grip strength or significant pressure on my hand. I can still do things like pec flys but can't do much with free weights at all. Any suggestions for things to work out upper body that requires little or no grip strength/pressure?

It really throws your system for a loop.

Maybe you should do a more extensive warmup routine? Right now my heavy is so low that I'm not overly concerned with injury.

But it is nice to get under that heavy weight while I'm still fresh.

here's an example:

Flat Bench:

Warm up to working set (for example):

10 x bar \ 10 x 50 \ 8 x 100 \ 8 x 125

Working set:

8 x 145 (rest 3 minutes) \ 10 x 130 (rest 2 minutes) \ 12 x 120

of course on your heavy you really wanna do 4x275 then 6x260 then 8x250 or something like that

Yes, I'm interested to see how it works when I do back.

That's basically what I did... just not quite as much warmup, which may have been the issue... I think I need to do some pec deck flies or something to stretch out a bit... but otherwise I did almost exactly what you said with slightly different weights...

4x275, 6x245, 8x225, 10x185 and I was wore out.
