I've taken C4, 1.M.R, Ignition, VPX Friction and I'm currently on Platinum Pre.


Friction is my fav.  I'm on the Platinum because I'm cycling off creatine right now...


C4 is ok, but I build up a tolerance to it very, very quickly and end up taking 2 scoops.


1.M.R. works but tastes like vomit.


Tried Jack3d and hated it.. made me jittery...

Back when I was big into pre, I would get up to 4 scoops. no bueno.

I finally smashed my goal of 320 paused on bench! And hitting 20 BW pullups at 198 doesnt hurt either.

I do some things to failure - mostly body weight stuff like push ups and dips.
I've mentioned several times that I rarely lift heavy anymore. There's nothing wrong with lifting to failure if that's what you're into. I'm not. If you are used to it, of course your recovery times will be shorter.
Ever since I've discovered how awesome yoga can be, post workout soreness isn't really an issue.

There really is no cookie-cutter routine that works for everyone. I have several bulging discs (in my thoracic spine at that) that eventually led to nerve damage and muscle atrophy, especially around my left shoulder blade. Most of my workouts are somewhat limited (like Benching) and designed to increase mobility. Basically I'm trying to keep functioning and keep that dull pain right between my shoulders away. when I take a few days off, my back reminds me.

You should try contrast temperature therapy. Basically turn your shower warm then about half way through, make it ice-cold. It cuts down on soreness ALOT.

lifting to failure is as much about endurance as anything

Correct! It raises your lactate threshold like a mother!

It's like that giant guy in the video PSC posted said... it's different for different people.


I've done exercises to failure before, but don't do it often because I don't often work with a partner.  Joscott and I workout on the weekends some, but not during the week...


Having said that, I do some power lifts, but strength is not my main goal...  my goals are kind of mixed...


I like getting stronger and I'm stronger than I've ever been but it's not really my main focus...   At 40 I can bench 300 (1RM), deadlift over 300 for reps and squat 400 (although I don't squat much due to my shoulders)... so I'm pretty happy with that as is.


I want to see what I can deadlift... I did 315 6X today, but don't really want to push it either... I'm pretty confident I can get 350 at least 2 times, but I have to work tomorrow and figured I'd done enough.

thats an admirable goal! and the weight your pushing is solid! good job!
