    No no no, I just found that typo. HE says I should just jump in and do 2 sets and leave. I warm up for the session (some jogging, heavy bag work), then do 2 easy sets to warm up for the excercise, then progressivly add weight from what I think would be ~60% to ~80% (it's what it feels like). Usually 6-7 reps for warm up sets, then 5 sets of 5, with the last two being ~80% 1RM.

    The DB idea sounds good. I have 2 adjustable ones, so I could use those. I was thinking I'd have to stop benching soon anyway, the bench is getting rusty and wobbly.

    Ideally I'd just go to the gym, but I got the bench, bar, and 4 25lb plates for free from my dad's friend, so I just went to Sears and bought 110lbs of cheap sand-filled weights for $30.

    I always prefer the Gym over my place to do lifting. Much more equipment, people to spot if I need it, and tons of freeweights. I'd say do the jogging and HB after your lifting. You'll achieve better hypertrophy from having more energy to do the heavy weight (pushing higher amounts of weight by being fresh) and you can increase your HB and jogging exercise times further to add to your cardiovascular and muscular endurance. Diversify your lifts a bit and bring down the amount of sets to 3-4 depending on amount of lifts you're doing.

    I don't do it until I'm tired, I just do it until I get a little sweat going. Like 10 minutes max.

    K, that's fine, as long as you don't think you're detracting from your lifting.

    As for iso's, I use those primarily for some back, shoulders (I have 2 shoulder injuries) and non-heavy sets for chest.

    Glutamine, unless one really knows how much one would be consuming, I think that it is safe to say that sustained heavy exercise will wear out the bodys supply and the natural regeneration will be inadequate. I saw gains from using a supplement myself when I was on it, not on it nowadays... don't really have the time to lift heavy and I am not looking to increase my muscle mass by much.

    1rms... matter of opinion, I do not believe in them and neither do most that I know, including trainers. Of course, I will *max*, but I will never lift anything that I cannot lift at least 2-3 times without a spot, an initial lift is fine.

    I agree about the Glutamine, hence I take it myself :-D.

    I always use a spot for lifting heavy stuff. I usually gas on the 4th rep at doing heavy weight, so I can't afford to not have one.
