I've taken a layoff from lifting.  IT's been about a 1.5 weeks.  the primary driver is that the small support muscles in both shoulders are VERY unhappy.  What I've done is moved to kettlebells, and the results so far are great.  It's much more aerobic, the shoulders are happier, almost pain free, and there's been a loss of a couple pounds of what I hope is fat.  I'd like to see another 25 pounds of fat gone this year.  I'm realizing that mechanically, and genetically, I am not a competition level bodybuilder.  I'm happy that I hit a 315 lb bench single, and a 315 squat triple.  Now it's about longevity, and tightening everything up a notch.

Hi just now put up a post for you on my site. It may be public but I would advise you to take a look at it!

I hit my final planned pr for squats yesterday.  300 lb for a set of 3.  My chiropractor is asking me to stop doing them, something about getting shorter every time I visit or something.... onto one legged workouts.

We live in a strange age.  Madonna doesn't shave her armpits, but all the big guys in my gym do...

Why is it that the only way to get pecs of death is to endure moobs of agony?!? chest day is done.

Someone was asking me to show a video of what I recently mentioned about changing my workout to include mini pulses in each rep.  Can't find one, but here's what I'm talking about.  When you get to the stage in the rep shown below, back off about 6-12 inches, then go back to this stage in the rep.  That's one pulse.  2-3 pulses for each full rep.  Try it, you'll thank and hate me all at once.

Woo. Talk about intensity. Once I max out on the pec deck machine ( a loooong time from now) I'll use this to keep the progress going.

Had a pr yesterday.  Dumbell Bench Press (laying on the floor)  85 lb, 4 sets of 10.  I get a lot of strange looks doing them while laying on the floor, but, for my shoulders, you can't lower your arms past parallel, it's very easy to get them in position by hooking your legs into them, and if I loss strength, I just have to let them fall outward to avoid a calamity.  It just make a lot of sense to me to do them that way.

So yesterday was chest, which is normally a pre-exhaust type routine for me.  But then I saw a video of a woman doing arm curls on a machine.  The twist to the exercise was that at the peak of contraction, she would do the concentric portion of the rep,then back and forth a few inches each way, for 3 reps, then the full rep, then the 3 pulses, and so on.  I added this to pec deck and cable crossovers.  Full rep, and then pulse, a foot apart, then back together 3 times, then the next full rep.  Holy moly!  Pumped to within an inch of their lives, my pecs were.  Never felt that before. I had to back off the weight a bit to make it work, like about 25%, and did 4 sets of 10 each, with dumbbell bench pressing off the floor between them.  Damn!  try that one and see, it'll kill you.
