4x10-12 reps for all isolation exercises, except for squats/bench which would be 5x5?

Then why can you do squats?
i fractured and compressed my t4 and t5 vertebra several years ago... when i do deadlifts it feel really bad/weird on my spine, as if its gonna snap or something. when i squat i feel a bit of pressure on my spine, but it's not nearly as bad as deadlifting...plus i'm only squatting like 215 max, and i'm sure it would be much worse if i got up past 350lb.

I do a pretty similar program but also train shoulder press and chins/rows heavy, oh and deads, however, not going to tell you to do deads.

Stop squatting. :ugh:

I didn't feel a thing when I used to squat, then I had two surgeries on five levels of my spine. Don't dick with your chances, bro.


if it gets to the point where i feel uncomfortable doing them, i will stop. but so far my spine has been fine with squats. i use this logic with deadlifts, which is why i don't do them..it doesn't feel right.

i also decided to try the following instead of 4x12, and like it so far:

set 1: 12 reps
set 2: 10 reps
set 3: 8 reps
set 4: failure (6-8 reps)

THEN STOP FUCKING AROUND :ugh:

I had a dural tear during the first surgery, and I leaked spinal fluid for three days before they cut me open again to fix it. They fixed the tear, but now for the rest of my life, I will feel like I'm walking through waist-deep water.

That's the joy of nerve damage. Stop being stupid.


but then how to get big? :wtc:
