    I usually do 4 sets of 6-10 reps:

    body weight, bw+25, bw+35, bw+45.

    at my gym, you have to go to the bloody front desk and sign out the belt to attach the plates to. Cant be bothered so I just do body weight only.

    thats pretty impressive if true.

    I do sets with the 45 pound plates... wide grip and leaned forward on shoulder day, and closer grip vertical on tricep day.

    I usually get under big guys doing dips and get them on my shoulders and start dipping them.

    135? post up some pictures of you

    are you doing them on a flat bench (with the weight on your lap) or an actual dip bar?

    well more power to you if you actually can. me and you are very similar sized, and you do a shitload more weight. What are you putting on BB bench?

    Max I've tried years ago was 60lb dumbell held between my legs for 5-6 reps.
    Haven't tried weighted dips too often...

    i didn't mean i don't think it's possible. i meant based on his pics i wouldn't have guessed he could do that much.

    dips and bench don't have much correlation

    I'm just curious of the chest numbers he's putting up. I wish I could do that kinda heavy weight like you guys, but wrist injuries and shoulder injuries really hurt my benching
