Inspired by Maks Thread.

Just curious as to what weight you all push, would be nice to see some numbers off everyone. Just copy and paste the following exercises and fill in accordingly.

Each of these for me is for 6 clean Reps.

Bench - DB 36kg (dont do Barbell)

Deadlift - (dont do them)

Squat - 100kg

Shoulder Press - DB 32kg

Shrug - BB 170kg

BO Row - 90kg

CG Bench - 80kg

Curl - DB 16kg

    Rambo - Crap lifts IMO mate (not yours, mine) Admitedly they are the best ive done, but been training properly for 8 or so months, need more strength and way more size yet.

    You mean buy throwing the weight up with the power of my Legs? No my form is near perfect on everything, i dont see the point in using poor form at all. I weight train to stimulate Muscle growth, not injure myself. Guess i just have a strong Back. Its one of my better points along with my Delts.

    No Im meant, not bent over enough and rowing to like the mid-ab region. Like dorian does in his vids. But sounds like your using good form! good lifting! good shoulder press too!

    Spose its a bit like Dorians, but i bend over more slightly and have my Legs at a wider stance. Never round my back like some folk though

    Cheers for the complements mate, always nice, esecially from someone who lifts more than me and is generally more experienced.

    Try holding your hands a little higher up and your back will look bigger. At the mo you're making your torso look very long which loses the ratio of your back width. Try it and show us another photo

    Kitty,
    How do you you do a back pose properly? The reason i ask is as i've been practicing ready for some progress photos. I either "look like a frozen chick" as my girlfriend says, or i stick out the pointy bit of my shoulderblades!

    Also how high up should hands be to give max back width?

    Cheers,

    Rodge.

    I presume you mean a lat spread like Joe's doing in his photo. One of the common mistakes I see which is what I think your gf means is that some people squeeze their shoulder blades together rather than trying to put as much space between them as possible. Try to think about how your lats react when you do a pulldown or chin up. One thing I like to do is 'hang' for a while whilst doing these as it helps you feel the lats.

    Start practising by doing a double bicep but at the same time flex your chest to bring your pecs out, that will make sure you can't squeeze the shoulder blades together, now hold that position but moving from your elbows just put your hands on your waist and keep squeezing the position, try make your shoulders flat on top rather than round your ears which should then bring your lats out a little further. Finally, push your fists into your waist so that it appears narrower and voila!! The position will really depend on how long your torso is. Joe seems to have a long one which is why I think he needs to hold higher up. You can see on my avatar that I'm a short arse so I can keep them lower on the waist.

    Keep practising and eventually you should just be able to go straight into a lat spread once you get the feel.
