Question for ya. How do you decide which exercises to do sets of 5 reps with and which exercises to go 10 or even 20 reps?

I was trying to see how far I could go on the leg press with just 5 reps. Once I hit 4 plates on each side and it felt easy I decided to go up a plate after each set. I typically know how many reps I can do for any particular exercise. I do x number of reps depending on how I feel.

Nice, I also took the weekend off.....bodybuilding prep is tough...in so many ways....but returned for a 2-hour workout as well....Lean and Green trained all weekend and is back for 2 sessions today! As long as he can handle it, I'm supporting all that training...I know for me I have to be careful and make sure I get enough rest, etc. Though, I will be doing 2-a-day sessions soon too, and lots more cardio. Just did 20 minutes stair stepper today in addition to my long chest workout.

Catch up soon....keep on powering along!

Tuesday: Did 1.5 hours heavy back and then ran a mile on treadmill and an additional 1/2mi. on a track.

When I was running on the treadmill it felt as if I was flying with my lats cause they popped out so much.

I worked hamstrings and abs today with 8 laps around the track.

I took a picture yest after my back workout and it looks as if my chest is getting a little bit fuller and abs appear to be bigger even though you cant see them much due to me eating more these days. Please excuse the non-professional bathroom pose. Dont hate on the bad posing either.
