    Can anybody here do it for decent sets? Like sets of 6-8?

    My goat in life is to warm up to 4 plates and workout with that. I need some tips though from anybody who has reached that as I’ve been stuck on 3 plates for awhile..

    I do 5 sets of 10 with 3 plates and a 25 at the moment. I anticipate getting to 4 plates within 3 months or so. I've never had problems adding weight on dips, even when the rest of my lifts were stalling and have followed a more or less linear progression.

    Seen a couple people do that. One of my goals, but my pressing strength is pretty meh. If I did that much, I'd be pressing 425lbs. That would be monster stuff!
