Did you mean barbell extensions?  Or do you use one dumbell with two hands?

DB held with 2 hands. i don't know if i have good leverage for tricep workouts or what but i always been pretty strong at extension type tricep workout, but my tris even when i focused wholly on bodybuilding they looked small, my arms in general are small for my build Cry

Strong benching!  I went back and looked at your training and you've gotten quite a bit stronger just since March.  How much do you weigh now?

thanks man. benching has always been my strong suit. i was able to bench 315 at lighter body weights. i think i may have done it at 185 before, and i used to bench 295x4-8 at 195.
currently i am not to sure what i weigh. the last time i weighed myself i was down to 220 clothed, and when i weighed myself in my boxers i was 224. after my next deload week i will weigh myself again and tighten up my diet again.

i will hit the dead lifts in the morning after my shift is done, arg.

but overall i am still fat Angry

Hang in there with the diet. Mine has suffered a bit lately too. It happens. Getting back into the cycle is hard though.

i have a had a crazy week at work. no sleep, diet is all screwy! oh well i did not fall to far from course though. i felt like i had more in me for the dead lift but i tweaked my lower back so i stopped at 5. this is why i switched things around a bit.
the meet i have been training for may be on the 19th of december, which i may have to work. so i am now unsure whether i will be able to do it at all now Angry well i will train for it regardless. i will stick with the 5/3/1esq training till then. if not i will do the same meet as i did earlier this year, i think in february.

well i failed my first squats in a while. i had the safety bar in and actually remember the collars so i went for it even though i wasn't sure about it. on the 2 rep at 345 i went up and lost my balance on top. i think half way up i am considerably stronger than i am coming out of the hole. so i have to work on some more on pushing out of the hole, so that is why i took the box squats a bit lower this week. i forgot to weigh myself but i will tomorrow before i eat to see where i am for the week.

i got bored as shit doing cardio. i am trying to keep it easy because i fried my leg last week, so i am trying to gradually bring in the more intense walking!

i can kind of see where abs might be on my body, still fat though Angry

i missed yesterday because i just did not feel well at all, but i feel much better today. i got stuck a bit on the 290 on the 3rd rep, and the guy spotting me just put his fingers on it but i pushed through. i am doing well with my diet, but i have been having bouts with not being hunger at all, i think because i am not all the way better yet.

i felt weak going in today, so when 400 came around i was not feeling it. i got 1 but if i really wanted to i could have grinded one more but i did not have it in me.
man this being sick on and off for the last couple weeks have really put a dampening on my training. so i am going to train for the december 19th wether i do the meet or not, i will just use the date as my goal date. then i will enjoy the holidays and get back into in the new year. i feel healthy but just worn out!
