I have seen a lot of .....for lack of a better word........ "Bad-ass-ness" recently. Now I am fairly open minded and realize that locations, occupations, experiences, physical ability, etc all…Continue

Hello! Nice to see a fellow Pilipino here! I am from Cavite! Nice profile! Your list of books are awesome! I weight train too but not as heavy as yours! haha!

Ha ha, we'll see about that. Trying to bust out of a bench plateau, goings been slow, but 5 3 1 is excellent for that.

I like doing dumbbell presses one arm at a time, really throws balance into the mix and involves the core muscles more. The 5 3 1 keeps me in the gym for an hour tops, letting me focus all my up-front energy on the major lift. Then I can go, or have play time with assistance work. As you can tell, I almost never skip assistance work.

I've spotted a guy with similar, his doctor told him to just not come down all the way to his chest on the bench; seemed to work for him.

But if you can't bench that way, I'm in agreement that you'll progress out of that weight quickly with dumbbells. I've seen you do your hybrid deadlift/squats and that's incredible weight you have there. Maybe you are past what the 5 3 1 can offer you? All I know it's been working with me, but then again I am way behind you strength-wise.

At 6:20am on July 11, 2014, Carl Monster said…

Hmmm...I don't use dumbbells for my core movements, it's the Olympic bar. I use dumbbells for the assistance work, and that certainly does not need to include dumbbells, it can be anything. To me that's the "fun" part because the core movements do get boring.

When I do the conversion to pounds I get 83; that's a heavy dumbbell.

If you need more than those I'd say you are already one strong mofo!

Thank you; perspective is always welcomed, helping or no.
