    Thanks...

    The 531 program (generally put) is for the 4 main lifts - Bench Press, Squat, Overhead Press and Deadlift... you then do some assistance work with it...
    I am doing the 5/3/1 + Big But Boring (as linked below)... there are a ton of alternative 5/3/1 options out there... the one I am doing is a really basic, no frills, routine.

    For chest, considering I am already doing a **** ton of reps on flat bench, I am only doing 4 sets of inclined dumbbell presses as assistance. It may not seem like a lot at first, but, lets take a quick look here:

    on the 555 day.. for example
    * warmup with a 10x bar + 5x 135 *
    5 reps completed -> 5 reps
    5 reps completed -> 5 reps
    10 reps completed -> 5+ (meaning a min of 5, but rep to failure)
    50 reps completed -> BBB 5 sets of 10 currently (you start at 50% of the 1rm, but you can increase that %, I up it every cycle)

    70 reps of flat benching... do you really think you need much more ? lol..

    So. I do 4 sets of inclines, in the 8 rep range..

    Then I do 3 exercise of 4 sets of 10ish reps for triceps.

    This is exactly what I did. I then followed a link off that site to download a spreadsheet template, and have been using that for 3 months now... if I remember correctly it's on a site called strongjournal.com

    All you had to say is for proof...i guess you shouldn't believe anything on the internet right? Think I have heard that a couple times here and there. Had to train legs today, did chest yesterday. When I was in between Hams and Quads I had an itch just to get one of the guys to video and I would kick out a quick set at 275 for $hits and giggles. Then I realized, i haven't warmed up my shoulders/Rotator cuffs....i spend a good 10-15 doing PT type exercises before any upper body. More importantly, I did chest yesterday....as i was warming up with 135 i said..."what for again"

    Next Chest day, Ill put on a clinic for you guys....;-) maybe sooner

    Thanks for all the detailed info guys. Sounds like an interesting concept and its obviously working . Think Ill give it a try in the near future. Just starting to get back into being able to bench,squat,deadlift , and OH press again in my basement after my gym closed. This forum has been very helpful and motivational in getting the home gym going and getting inspired by others here in the over 35.

    Well, guys I'm new to the forum. But I read this thread and thought about participating. This is still open huh?? Looks like a 2011 post and some sorta 2011 deadlines. Personally 39 yrs old, I have cut down a good bit which looks to have affected my strength a good bit. But now that winter has arrived I'm bulking up a bit and should be able to throw up a decent number, not my best, but decent so it would seem. Used to do 315lbs 6-8 times or so at 212lbs. Recently, I was 195lbs, now up to about 203-204lbs. But this still puts me inthe same category. Haven't maxed out in a number of years. This has perhaps inspired me to try, just to see. I might go ahead and throw up the 315, see how it goes and go up from there. I still work out with the top 120lb dumbells on incline (not much flat) getting about 8 reps or so (depending on the day), but I used to get 10-12 reps pretty easy...so I know my strength is not full. Let me hear some feedback if this is still open, then I'll bust out the vid. Sounds fun! Thanks!

    Yea, it's our squat rack... lol.. we don't have a typical bench for BP.. they have those machines and the mix machine free weight things...

    So, I Bench in the Squat rack...

    I moved my leg about 4 reps or so in, and it totally threw me off for the rest of my set... still jammed 12 out, happy with that.

    I'm new to this forum but I want to toss my hat into the ring. I'm doing the 100K Transformation challenge and this could be the added motivation I need to help me make my goal. I don't care if I win the big prize I just want to get my weight down to 240 and have the same strength I had at 313. I'll be making my entry in the next week or so.

    I keep platuagh at 325 x 4 reps. Strength goes up and down but once I hot 325 x 4 or 365 x 1 cant seem to rise above it. My 225 max on a good day is 15-19 reps.
