I’m 22 years old, 5’10, 220lbs and have been training for quite a long time. I started doing bodyweight exercises daily when I was 5, started lifting weights in my garage when i was 10 or 11, and joined a gym when I was 16. I was always more of a bodybuilder, but as of late my main interest has shifted to trying to become as strong as possible. I want to put up insane numbers.

Here is my training from today.

Bench Press:

-45 x 20

-95 x 20

-135 x 20

-185 x 10

-225 x 5 paused

-275 x 5 paused

-325 x 5 paused

-325 x 5 paused

Close Grip Bench Press:

-135 x 10

-185 x 10

-225 x whatever didn’t count

-275 x 5 paused

-275 x 5 paused

Incline Dumbbell Press:

-45 x 10

-75 x 10

-110 x 10

-110 x 8

-100 x 12

-100 x 12? I think

Machine Flyes:

-90 x whatever

-4 or 5 sets with 120lbs. Focusing on a deep stretch, shoulders back, and bringing the ELBOWS together rather than the hands.

JM Press (Smith Machine):

-several sets of 10-12 with a 45 on each side. I started to do this movement recently but I’m still learning how to do it. I feel like I fuck it up still, will work on it though.

EZ Bar Tricep Extensions (Cable):

-worked up to the whole stack (205lbs) for 12 reps, and did a couple more lighter sets

-couple sets with an underhand grip also.

Was going to do rotater cuff movements but told myself I’ll do it next time. That’s what we always tell ourselves, right?
