Bodybuilding circuit
I did this superset with db curls, with slow extensions with pull ups with my friend who is a body builder. 4 sets, it was nuts. My arms were dead.

After hitting 235 on the bench, I've joined the 1000 lb club, which is awesome news for my total. It just shows that hard work and consistency pay off.

Thanks man. 692 is still a solid total. I always used my past totals to motivate me when I had a tough week. I tore a tendon in my foot this past summer and it took my squat down 80 pounds. Building my squat up has been the most rewarding experiences of my life. Its like building a wall that's broken, from the foundation. Its exactly what you're doing when you go the gym. Breaking yourself down and making a stronger foundation for success. There is no doubt in my mind that you will hit a 1000 total, because I was at the same place you were, and now I'm here.

Deadlift training ended with me failing on a 455 max pull and straining something in my back. I had a sharp pain when the weight got to my knees and I dropped the bar. Went to stand up and felt it again. A second later it felt alright and I was walking without pain. I decided that it would be better for me to get home and ice my back and get through the workout. Feels okay right now, slightly stiff as per usual heavy DL day but as for now, I'm taking it mighty easy.

Yeah, I've had issues with spotters as well. I've gotten in the habit of telling my spotters not to help unless the bar starts going down when it's not supposed to and I'm going to get crushed.

It gets me every time. I thought telling him that this was a 1RM would be alright and he'd just follow me up and down. I was bummed, but I guess it happens. I'll be telling the next spotter to just let me hit the safety bars.

Sounds good, funnily enough I always got stronger as my bodyfat and bodyweight decreased.
PM me your email address, I'll send 'The Cube Method' through to you. My programme is fairly similar, probably just even more simplified haha.
