    good to know/ Work,reading and your mrs taking all your time ? move to bris and train with me? We can start a tall mans training camp with no midgets that make false promises of training. yay

    p.s you forgot to alliterate the most important beach muscles with a quest for articulate abs

    ^^ Yep. Work is at the busy time of year, I've been spending a fair bit of time reading (averaging a book a weekend), the wife wants a few things done about the place and I have a guitar to build.

    Brisbane has the unfortunate problem of not being near any actual agriculture. I do like the idea though. No-one under 180cm, and people who actually want to lift.

    I'm doing abs. I have some leg raises there and will do some planks on cardio days after rowing. Main issue is that I don't have sexy bodyfat levels like you have in your avi!

    You're good for 8 reps at 180? Jebus Wish I could see the vids.

    5x10 chinups with and without weight I seem to remember you advocating a greater range of motion a while back when I actually posted here...like bringing your chest to the bar. My pullups have been coming back nicely and I found myself doing a few sets like that the other day...felt good. Is that still your philosophy on those?

    Natzo: Thanks dude. And yes beach muscles need iron too!

    PV: As long as you can think of un-sexy thoughts while watching Pickle squat you can join.

    Glex: I'm going to have to pull a max session at some stage, because my supposed max is somewhere around 230-240kg. As for the weighted chinups/pullups I'm trying to hit as many sets of 10 weighted as possible before dropping down in steps (currently doing 3 sets with 20kg then 1 with 10kg then one BW). And yes I do try to keep my pulling going to the clavicles. Makes a huge difference in the amount of weight you can use, I'm finding this moreso on medium grip pullups. I've also been doing front levers and tucked front lever pullups. Have a look into them, they are really amazing. It took me a few months to get to being able to do a 3/4 extended front lever (not quite fully extended through the full movement) and I still can't hold at the top without tucking.

    I don't think I have that kind of flexibility, but I will try on my next back day. I've been doing a lot of mixed grip and crazy variations on pullups, and a friend here is going to teach me muscle-ups

    Ok Boring But Big is tougher than I thought. Who the hell would have thought 5 sets of 10 with 50% would hurt this much!!!!

    I felt like a wimp having to battle for the last two sets of deadlifts last night. It was only 110kg for crying out loud!!

    Why so much hate Freako? If you want to kill me just stab me in the back like all the other cowards.

    On a serious note I've been having problems with training. I'm pondering going over to something really lazy for a few months. I was thinking a "bodypart" split type thing. Basic idea would be just work up to a heavy set of 2-5 reps for the day then do some other exercises for reps. E.g. Bench, then DB bench for 2-3 sets, then pushups for 2-3 sets. Do all of that drop set bullshit and a dedicated arms day and the like.

    Thoughts?

    you kiddin'?

    imho 5/3/1 is "lazy enough", just adjust accesory shit as desired (eg: curls) but bodypart split? what's next? balance ball squating? Now seriously, what kind of problems are you having? time, stress, tiredness? Perhaps you only need a couple of weeks off.
