    OK... Monday i did chest. Went well. still weak, but i am diff seeing mind boggling improvements..

    ex: last week on last exc. i did 3 sets of 3 with 70 pound dumbbells bench press. I was seeing stars... Yesterday did 3 sets of 5 and it wasnt that bad.

    Also, was able to do dips with much more ease... So, good... On bench press, pyramided up to 225.. So, still very weak.. (225 x 3 reps, last set.)

    But improvement

    Im using my old stuff. I always get my protein from the protein factory.
    proteinfactory.com

    Its high quality, and they dont spend alot of money on packaging, or advertisement, so the savings is passed on.

    Every kind of protien you can imagine. I like to build custom protiens, but im so far back in the game right now, after my good stuff runs out- "(its old, so its probally not great quality anymore) ill be just getting me a jumbo 10 pound bag of whey protein...

    After i get going good again, ill be using like 5 diffrent kinds, my favorite being the protien peptides i use right after working out, with 50% dextrose...

    today was shoulders. Another great workout. really going up fast. again, just the highlights.
    military shoulder press, behind the neck, seated. 135 x 8 reps x4 sets, failing the last set at 7.

    Really seeing alot of size and strength improvement.

    funny though, the slowest muscle group to respond is chest, which used to be my easiest best muscle group... but its still improving pretty well.

    main problem so far is my massive belly (you can tell i lift still, and i think my v is coming back ), and trying to clean up my diet...

    diet is MUCH improved, but still crappy....

    I'm actually surprised you decided to go low reps this quickly back into your routine. I would have thought you would have gone the high rep cycle just to shock the body and get it acclimated to the stress again. Just a thought.....

    Its hard... i was trying to do at least 12-20 reps.. Im mixing it up now... i went heavy on the military press, but went high reps with arnold presses, shruges, and side raises. (actually half heavy, half light)

    Lifting heavy is just so much more fun...

    Are you just doing flat fly's or incline fly's as well? I find incline fly's to me more effective IMO.

    flat. I sometimes switch it up, and do incline. But today i did flat. I did the incline machine bench press instead. If i did incline fly, i probally would have done flat machine bench press instead of incline.

    I've been super setting Bench presses with fly's for the past month and my chest feels awesome!! I'll do incline bench, then directly into incline fly's for 4 sets. I do the same for flat.
