    1. 225 pounds for reps
    2. Bodyweight + 15kg extra for max rep
    3. Standing militarypress for max rep 60kg
    4. Playing around.

    Also did light deadlift and cable rows inbetween.




    Thats basicly what i did, 1 set max for each of those excersises i filmed.. This is how i usally train once a week, and the other day is lighter and different excersises with more sets/reps.

    How do you guys train?

    Without getting into the particulars, like form, momentum etc.
    I would say that that was pretty impressive.

    But if you're going to post stuff like that, then you'd probably want to start a log and post it in there. Unless you're looking for someone to criticize your technique.

    Guys, let's give TS the benefit of the doubt here. He's new to the forums. It was an honest mistake. He's already started a log in the log subforum.

    Your form is shit on the bench and pull ups but your shoulder press is clean as a virgin's honeypie. Also impressive jumping stuff at the end.

    7/10 would lift with

    Well, i train explosive bench. My ass isnt off the bench its just flexing as i go up again. Thats the way my shoulders feel the best training bench. It wasnt long ago i couldnt train with 60kg cuz my shoulders would ake. I go 90% way down on the pullups for the same reason. I would be waaaay stronger with better form without the labrum injuries. Thanks for the rating ;)

    im 26, but i was stronger when i was 20. The last 6 yrs have been mentainance(?), and rehab for the shoulders.

    um.. i started training 1 time a week when i was closing in on 16 yrs old, then after a year i upped it to two times a week, then for a year or two i did 3 times a week. When i was 17 +4month :)p) , i did 137,5kg bench press and 130kg+ in narrowgrip bench press.. I was so fascinated by strongman i went into the woods lifting logs above my head, so it resulted in a chronic triceps injury. So when i was 19 yrs old, after 1 year of rehab and doing many reps i did a new PR 145kg.. Havent done more than that since that time.

    My diet was stricter before i got the bachelors degree in nutrition, since i had more motivation back then. And now i smoke weed like almost every day, so that effects my choice of food later in the day. haha..

    But i get alot of nutrient-rich food in the day, so it doesnt matter that much, except i get a bit fatter.

    For example:
    Breakfast: Shake with protein powder, mixed berries, some almonds and honey.

    Lunch: Either bread with ham/cheese/paprika maybe, or around 600grams of kesam(13% protein milk product) with honey and nuts.

    Dinner: varies so much, but if im healthy i can make around 400g of 5% grindedmeat from beef, some potatoes, tomatos, garlic, shrooms etc..

    Evening: it can vary from kebabs, pizza, burger, toast, peanuttbutter with honey etc.. Not that healthy usually. But i drink alot of green tea and chamomille tea in the evening with lemon, ginger and honey or some sweetening.

    Supplements: Creatine, Vitamin D(since i live in norway), Zink/magnesium and Omega 3.
