Started a new routine yesterday will do it for three weeks and see if there is a significant change anywhere in my strength or size.

I'm doing a 3x5 with each set so im lifting very heavy

dbell decline bench press

1x5 60lbs <---was too light
1x5 70lbs
1x5 75lbs

my dbells at my gym only go up to 75 so im kinda stuck there

flat bench press

1x5 240 lbs no spotter needed
1x5 245 lbs no spotter needed
1x5 250 lbs no spotter needed

was tough but i gout out all five reps on my own no bouncing no touching of the chest complete controlled reps

skull crushers

1x5 105 lbs
1x5 115 lbs
1x5 125 lbs last set was amazing

its so much weight my elbows hurt!! haha

cable cross overs

1x5 90 lbs
1x5 100lbs<----- just added cross overs to hit the chest more wasnt a 3x5 but..... it works

overall a great day and a good start to the 3x5 routine.
