As someone that has been active on another forum I know rate my workout threads are stupid. I have tried several methods of working out through the years. That being strict powerlifting and strict conditioning at two different periods of my life. But I finally figured out what my body responds best to I think. My chest, abs and v (the parts that I felt I shouldn't be focusing on were not visually appealing when I was doing powerlifting) no matter my diet, they were not pronounced.
They love higher volume. My arms and legs grow no matter the volume as long as I'm putting in hard work. My back grows no matter what. I'm focusing on conditioning and bodybuilding right now using a mixture of exercises. Tell me what you think of my work out today. No replies from noobs!!!! Seriously, I did starting strength for a year and got up to some okay numbers, I'm doing something completely new after being inactive for a year.

Im loving the volume and I love working out long hours, but I want to hit everything... Give me some nice compounds that I can hit light with high reps so I can hammer them with some isolation afterwards for some sick gains.
