    Your order is fine, I too start with Incline presses, but then I do flat bench secondly followed by declines. I also end my chest day with dips because dips also work out the lower region of the chest giving you that inner crease between the pecs.


    In terms of sets, you can do the 5x5 routine where you push up the same amount of weight 5 times and for 5 sets. If you are able to complete the 5x5 successfully, then it's time to increase the weights.
    Thanks, man. I'm gonna bump up the weight and try the 5x5 routine.

    I think it was more of a tweak than a cramp. Probably from doing a pretty rough workout when I haven't done **** for some time.
    P90X is the bomb.

    Insanity is even awesomer(especially cause it finishes so fast)

    Well for about five weeks now I've started a new training program for track. I had been doing running and some weight training since early September but now I'm getting into a lot of stability and agility training. Most of the stuff I do is one-legged, and then I'm doing a lot of drills and dynamic stretches. I've already made a lot of progress. In isolated hamstring lifts I've increased my strength by about 2.5 times, and my hamstring range of motion has increased from 55 degrees to 75.

    I've been doing circuit training kind of stuff, and it has been a killer, but it's getting good results. Been doing a lot of one leg stuff on a Vertimax and other one legged squats and such. Also been doing a lot of knee drive stuff on a Kicker, and a lot of plyos and hamstring strengthening. Next week I'll be starting workouts on a Powerpull. You strap on a vest, and pull that behind you for sprints. A typical good workout is 4 sets of 4 reps of 40 meters, without about 45 seconds rest in between each rep, and about six minutes rest in between each set. It is a great way to train for power and speed.

    The goal for me is to gain as much strength as possible while gaining little or no weight, so I'm not carrying bulk around the track for 400 meters.

    It is going great, and I'm looking to make some good improvement in times this season.

    Yeah, P90X is awesome, except when you pull your groin-ish.

    I was stuck doing the ab ripper x workout today since I couldn't really squat or bend over.

    I think I'm just going to stretch it out for the full 57 minutes tomorrow and take it a little easier in the videos. Been drinking an *** ton of water today and took some multivitamins to hopefully get this tightness to go away.

    Every time I start a new workout after months off, I overdo it and hurt myself. Last time I pulled my bicep keeping up with regulars at the gym. Now, I pull my groin-ish doing P90X until I can hardly move.
    I'm In.

    Which workout did you get hurt doing?

    The hardest one is probably Plyometrics X, it really knocks you out the first time. Took me around an hour and a half the first time but the next one i was able to do it with them.

    Keep up with the X though, its really good stuff.

    I'm out in Clearwater which is right outside of the Tampa Bay area. The closest college to me is USF. They do have a Baseball program.

    West Palm Beach is beautiful, I have a friend out there. It's about 4 hours from me.

    Dude, I tore my left groin muscle about 4 years ago playing handball. It prolly was the worse pain I ever felt. I was out of commission for 4 months. I couldn't walk normally much less workout or play sports. It was the worse 4 months of my life

    Try switching up your arm routine if your not seeing gains. If you start a day with an arm workout, then try switching it to the end of your workout.
