    in your experience, what set/rep range gave you the most mass and strength gains simultaneously?

    You want to use sets of 6 reps or less at 80%+ of your 1RM to enduce myofibrillated hypertrophy. Include a progression of increasing weight inversly related with number of reps. Ive been playing with high intesity (heavy weight/bar speed) and low reps (1-4) but keeping the volume (total weight lifted) high by having a larger (8-12) number of sets.

    [SIZE=3]DMAA products pulled from base shelves[/SIZE]

    The Defense Department has ordered an end to on-base sales of a number of workout supplements popular with military fitness buffs, concerned about potentially serious side effects of a key ingredient, DMAA. More than a dozen products containing DMAA have been yanked from on-base stores.

    Squat session last night:

    130# x 5
    170# x 5
    220# x 2
    260# x 2
    310# x 2
    360# x 2
    380# x 1
    400# x 1

    Yoke/Safety Squat Bar was used so the geometry is more that of a front squat.

    Apparently I am no match against a tiny pollen spore..... Alergies are wrecking me right now with the change of weather in SoCal (it was 88deg F yesterday).

    Yeah, I get killed with allergies/asthma as well. For me it is all synthetic things though. Those are my yoga at home days.

    Yesterday was:
    104 rope pullups
    206 heart pushups
    315 squats with 45lbs
    5K as sprint 1 min, 1 min jog to recover over a fairly hilly area.
