Germ, you're not one of those big on top, but chicken legs guys are you? You need to get some more leg blasting in there.

Your workout is very similar to what I did in college except we scattered core exercises throughout the week and dedicated one day to legs. It was always fun walking downstairs the day after legs.[8D]

The Goal is to get 325 lbs bench pressed

I dropped 27lbs since April. Haven't done any special diet or excercising. Just making better food choices and portion control. Been stuck at a plateau for the past 3 weeks though so I'm looking to change it up. I need to work in some more excercise but it's hard with my schedule.

Hi all.
If I can interject some of my opinion on the topic. I see some plateaus being discussed.
I also see workouts w/ 25 plus sets per body part. If these are being done at heavy weight , you're overtraining IMO. It may work for some but not for the big majority of poeple.
Try this when you've hit a plateau...

Train you're fast twitch muscles. Do sets of 15-20 w/ lighter weights for 4 sets.Pyramid up , but maintain 15 reps on the last set.EXPLODE your reps. Don't be sloppy.
Only 3-4 exercises per bodypart.
Abdominal work everyday. High reps , body weight exercises only.

Whatever you do, LIGHTEN UP for a while.

Im down 20 lbs from last season but I still need to drop another 10...... I need to get back into a weight program a couple days a week and step up my cardio......

I agree with you on being in shape making for a more enjoyable hunt.. That's especially true if you are mobile and hunt a new area every day!

I have weighed 205 for the past 15 years. I wear 34x34 pants, same as I have for the past 15 years. I eat well and get regular exercise but I don't have any set routine. I don't hit the weights, all of my "strength training" is from working HARD at work when I'm not sitting in front of this infernal machine! I run a couple of times a week for cardio. When I run I put in 2 miles. I'm going to be 47 next month and consider myself to be in OK shape for my age.
