Also gonna start training abs more often as well as calves, and soon I can lay butt ass naked in the field in back of my house to get a golden tan..............I`m gonna drop down to around 185 pounds or so for  the summer......gonna` look like  a 68 year old god amongst men.

Been intentionally clean now for 6 weeks.....  my supplier stopped selling .....I still have gear but no Test (would still be doing TRT if I had some) but found a new connection today.............I`ll be back!

Do you do any trap work Wes?  If so, when do you incorporate it?  Did you watch the fights that just finished on ESPN?  They were from Montreal.  If not, youtube the Rolls vs Butler main event.  Brutal knockout.  Reminded me a little of the Mercer Morrison.

Yeah Abe I do some trap training around every other week.............I have decent traps in a "crab shot" but I need to build the lower portion between my shoulder blades more IMO.....my back sucks bigtime........been training it a lot lighter and training for "feel" by squeezing and holding the bar at my chest for a second or two for a better contraction rather than just heaving heavy weights around and missing the supposed target area as I always did in the past with mediocre gains.

Just started deadlifting after decades of not doing them but I had to skip my second session due to time constraints (doctors appt.) so I`m off to a great start.  ;D

Anyway,I don`t want to get a sloped shouldered look that is why I don`t overemphasize trap training or front delt training.......would rather concentrate more on lateral head deltoids and shrinking my waist as I`m a small guy and an old fuck so massive traps would just hurt the shitty genetics that I have been "gifted" with.  :D

I was always pretty strong at pressing but I feel the front delt gets worked enough on chest day..........I want to concentrate on shoulder width and rear delts more these days.

I do DB Shrugs for high reps every other week or so and Wide Grip Upright Rows on delt day to chest height every other week or so.

.........and unfortunately I missed that fight bro!  :(

All the best my brother!  :)

Sorry to hijack your training thread but the main event tomorrow (Friday) Joshua vs Ngannou starts at 5pm if you are able to stream it.  PM me if you need a good one.  John Scully is one of the good guys in all of boxing.

No problem at all bro...you`re not hijacking......this is Getbig where every thread about anything goes off topic for at least 100 pages.  ;D

I don`t pay $80.00 for PPV fights bro,fuck the dumb shit  :D ....I can wait a day or a week to see them on YouTube.........also,thanks just the same, but the streams have never ever worked for me.

Scully = great fucking guy.....no doubt!

On a side note,I`m watching the prelims as I type this.

Have a great weekend dude!  ;)
