    ^This. Emphasise variations which target your weaknesses in the lift and perform isolations in addition to promote more hypertrophy of the muscles involved in the lift.

    They both add somewhat to the total workload of your upper back and forearms.



    Obviously they hit the entire core, but that's not really regarded as part of the upper body in these discussions.

    Whether seated OHP is inferior at all totally depends on the context of your routine. If you would benefit from additional core work, then standing is objectively better. If you're sufficiently...

    My original plan was to switch emphasis on different muscles over time in a certain manner, but currently I'm really enjoying the upper chest focus I have going on, and will probably continue it....

    Leg Day:


    This was yesterday.


    Leg Curls:


    8 sets of 6 today, with 130lb. Rested after 4 sets to do front squats and ab rollouts, then did the next 4 as usual.

    The diet factor becomes slightly more complicated for a girl. For guys, we can gain about twice as much muscle mass. This basically means that there's more margin of error when it comes to the...

    Then scrap this and keep doing what you're doing. Don't confuse what I'm about to say as meaning you shouldn't train hard on a cut, but increasing the amount of work you do in a period where you...

    Jeff's physique fluctuates. He gets bigger and smaller. Jeff has a strange relationship with the truth as earlier mentioned, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were periods of time before this...

    Muscle confusion is a rather misunderstood phenomenon. People arbitrarily change their exercises and routine in an attempt to confuse or shock their muscles, but it's been well overcomplicated.

    Upper Body 1:


    Incline Bench Press:


    4 sets of 5 with 70kg was the plan today. On the final set, though, I actually hit 6 reps on purpose, to get a better RPE. My performance this workout was...

    This.





    That's just something you'll have to learn do deal with. Find a tempo, (controlled descent, explosive ascent), and stick to it.

    Altering your routine to cater to your personal strengths and weaknesses is just part of the game.

    I think training for an exercise can be quite a good thing, if its the right exercise, but even then, not to be considered close to equal the importance of a powerlifter training for the big 3.

    Thanks yall. Some interesting answers here. I'll sleep more comfortably knowing that I'm not really missing out on results, (as far as being generally strong), by skipping out on 1-2 rep work.

    How much protein were you actually eating per day, OP?
  • For those who compete: How would your training change if competing wasn't a factor?

    Lets assume that you're unable to participate in any sort of meet for a few years. Your goal is basically to gain strength for several years before even thinking about actually competing again... You...
