I just noticed how much of a disparity there is in my tricep strength after doing skull crushers for the first time in a while. Need to get my right one going again. Was tragic seeing the bar go down crooked when doing them lol... Even on an extremely light weight. Was really concentrating to keep it even.

Question. I know a few guys here are regulars on bodybuilding.com (AND NO JEFF THIS IS NOT ABOUT THEIR FORUM)

But I just made my first supplement purchase from their store. Even with shipping it was a lot cheaper than GNC so I'll probably be doing all my supp shopping on there from now on. I was just wondering do they have a program like GNC's gold card? Where you can pay like an annual fee and get deals throughout the year?

I avoid GNC like the plague! rip-off-city!

I buy my sups from a mom and pop shop near my house. Their prices are competitive with the online prices and I don't have to wait 2 to 6 weeks to get it.

You don't have anything like that near you?

Nah not really. But BB.com is really quick. I placed my order yesterday at 10:34am and it got here about an hour ago, and that's just with standard shipping. So like a total of about 30 hours from initial order to delivery. Can't beat that

It's not taxing on the nervous system, but don't muscles generally require a day or so for protein synthesis to occur after being broken down? If you're aiming for hypertrophy It's probably best to spread it apart more (and incorporate other pressers extensions crushers to stimulate Long Head of Triceps), but if it's just specifically strength then proceed.

I know the Smolov, Bulgarian, and Russian athletes advocate daily squatting in order to get their numbers up a la pure strength.

They'll have a scheme where they do a few sets every day and not much else and they become accustomed to the movement, and it's not at a volume high enough to drain your CNS.

That's pretty awesome. I don't have too much experience with ordering supplements online. I'll check them out for sure.

Just some thoughts on chest workouts guys.

What have people found is the best way to put on mass? Regular bench? Dumbell press? High volume? Smith Machine?
I've been experimenting with adding more dumbell pressing in my routine throughout the week, though I've noticed the weight carry over to the bench is not that good. Seems to simply help you out with just the dumbell press. I'm currently trying to work my way up to a 400lbs bench for one rep (not close at the moment, 345lbs currently), and I want to be able to do that at my bodyweight currently, which is 212lbs.
I've been doing a lot of heavy two and three rep sets, while adding in a burn set at the end of my pressing movements at 135lbs, for about 25-30 reps. Simply for volume, and to practice pushing the bar up with as much speed as possible.

Obviously gains are going to be slow at this point, but what would people suggest, or what has worked for them to help get through certain plateaus for chest?

Got damn...345 is pretty damn impressive. Kudos

Right now I just do bench press (5 sets of 5 reps at 240) and elevated pushups (feet up on the 3rd or 4th stair, hands on the ground). Butterflies/chest flies also work pretty good for chest from what I've experienced. Those are my two go-to's

I love heavy incline flies. I just started doing weighted dips again as well. Stopped for a long time as they were giving me collarbone/clavicle pain.

At the moment I'm just trying to catch up to Adrian Peterson in terms of lifting stats. Apart from the squat of 530lbs, which I don't think I'll ever reach.

B-low are you sticking to 5 reps for your compound lifts like bench press, but using more reps on exercises like flies, dips, etc? Basically the supplementary exercises?

I ask because I'm doing 8 reps on all my other exercises when it comes to chest, and I'm not sure if its counter intuitive to my goal.
