I do hope you enjoy your visit here on my site. Whether you’re here for a couple of minutes or a whole hour you are always welcome here to browse my site. I know, my site is a bit barren right now, but that will change as soon as I get my affiliate links all set up and approved for use.
And don’t worry. I know that I don’t have an hours worth of material to browse through. I was just being facetious. Anyway, I jsst got some great news. I got the go ahead to start posting product.
Remember, if you are doing 10+ reps on your second set you need to move to a heavier weight to gain strength and build muscle mass…Now that’s just my opinion. Some say to lift 3-4 reps per set at near your maximum weight capability.
I think it just invites unnecessary injury especially to novices…But remember that’s my opinion. Remember only you can gauge your ability. Dont go crazy on your first day of the gym. You might never return if you over do it.
My own maximum training weights were starting with 80lb. dumbbells for a set of 10, then going 90lbs. for a set of 8, next I would go for a 100lbs. and try for 6 reps and finish with 110lbs. dumbbells and go for 4 reps. I would take a 2-3 minute break between sets.
I did this after 4 sets of benching at 12 reps at 275lbs, 8 reps at 295lbs., 4-5 at 315lbs and my last set would be 365 for 2-3 reps.
And don’t get me started on chest flys and dips. I loved them and would do them until failure.
To a lot of powerlifters out there that’s just peanuts, but for me it was pretty damn heavy…OKAY? So there. That was my chest day regimen.
