Those numbers do seem skewed to me as well... if it's working, great, but 110 totals reps of shrugs? Seems like a lot of reps for shrugs. I could probably do more. Well, personally my best long-term gains have come more in the range of 100 reps for an entire workout. 110 reps just for shrugs may me...

[quote="Stephen JohnsonYour routine is a classic bodybuilder push/pull/legs routine, which is better suited for refining existing muscle rather than building new muscle mass. [/quote]

Whats a good alternative?

I work a target muscle; then I Target the Synergists next.

That is better. Now, if you had as many lower-body days as upper-body, it would be a pretty balanced program. And it's nice to see dead lifts (predictable comment from me, I know). Well for legs I have Thighs hamstings calfs glutes for upper body I have Biceps triceps shoulders chest lats traps foe...

Wow, nice, I'm pretty jealous. I'd be really happy if I had a power rack like that. What's that thing on the floor in front of the heavy bag? It is a lift bar for adding plates. I bought almost everything off CL and live auctions. The only new thing I bought was the bench. I wanted a sturdy bench t...

weight vests are expensive so it depends on what you use it for. If running I say buy one but for dips and pull-ups just buy a dip belt that holds weight between your legs. you can get alot more on it. I use one for weighted pullups and it can hold more weight then you can get on a vest.
