    1) You will progress slower with dumb bells vs a barbell, and there is greater chance of an imbalance occurring over time, since the weaker arm could be going at a slower pace at a weak point in the...

    If you do 2 heavies for an extended period, you should add a set to the bench/row/squat to make up for the lost volume. "test day" will still be 2 sets.

    The pattern is always heavy medium light. ...

    Dont skip days because you are sore, that will make you more sore believe it or not.

    Honestly that guys form would work fine, if he didnt "rerack" each rep. WIth a 45/60 degree bent over row, it makes more torso "meat" than doing that guys bent over rack row, or a pendlay row. You...

    Ideally you would get in at least heavy day on 10 rep week before you started failing. There is not much you can do to improve the OHP. It is very tricky to program. On allpro 1.0, even the 2...

    Easiest way is to the heavy heavy pattern. Basically you do 1 heavy every 72-96 hours, for life. Every 2 heavies you add a rep to the sets. The only mod you do is the first 3 lifts...

    The more you struggle with allpro, the closer to the allpro workout you should climb. You can pretty much go nuts after the workout and still recover for the next workout.

    Curls should have been reduced a bit. I thought i had you doing heavy medium light 16-24 adding 2 reps a week, aka 2x allpro. So you should have started with your 18-20 rep max. The reason for...

    Id give a slight decline a shot. It should allow you to use more weight (5-15%) which should promote more growth.

    Going wide or narrow really isnt going to help. The wider you go, the more you...

    Two things.

    1) You can not reverse grip bench out of a power rack, i dont care if its even the bar. One slip and you are eating the bar or having it land on your throat. It is a very strong...

    You can swap flat for slight decline (15-25 degrees, not the full 45) since you are doing OHP as well. If you are not planing on competing or anything, you can even completely swap it for weighted...

    Nope, just now that you can really stress yourself, you need a bit more rest between sets. You will not be going much heavier, if at all, vs the 8-12.
