Early morning chest workout. Haven't had a morning gym session in quite some time. We'll see how it goes

I work mid-nights, so early morning workouts are a thing of the past. Currently, I do cardio when I wake up (2pm) then hit the weights (7pm) before I head into work. It works fine, Having a hard time keeping the fat off though, pretty sure it has some thing to do with my work/sleep pattern.

My workouts were pretty simple for a while, all focused on strength rather than mass.

Bench
Dead lift
Squats
Power cleans
Bicep curls

Did my entire workout with the same bar, worked pretty well. I ended up gaining a lot of mass, which was nice, but not what I was shooting for.

They go hand in hand. Not a separate idea.

Allow me to rephrase that, "the intent was to build up my strength, I knew I was going to gain mass, but that wasn't my intent like it is for a lot of people".

I rotated my workouts quite often from bars, to dumbbells, to machines, calisthenics, then back around. Not in that particular order either.

For chest I would do your standard flat, incline, decline bench... kinda no other way that I can think of. For dumbbells, I'd go somewhat heavy with butterflies, as heavy as I can handle for flat press. For machines, the crossover was my favorite, hold at the final rep on each set, the set is done when my chest and arms can't hold it anymore. Calisthenics... that's pretty much an easy one.

Doing sets until complete failure worked for me, once I started working out like that, I never left the gym feeling unaccomplished and lacking. I started noticing results not too long afterward.

There is nothing that feels better than after punishing your chest than to lay on a flat bench and doing light weight flys to stretch everything out good. I get the same feeling on the cables by just grabbing the handles and leaning forward not moving the stack. Maybe just me but have your chest muscles are full of blood and so tight that you can't put your arms together in front of you it just feels good to stretch them out.

I used to do the exact same thing with the cables.

Epic fail of a lift session today. Today was a heavy day and I was pathetic. Tried to bench 290 and that wasn't happening. Last wk it was fine. It may have a lot to due with running off of 5hrs of sleep I got last night and 4hrs the day before.
