      I dont do them anymore either... Have to work around existing injury's. For chest i start with the hammer strength machine 4 plates loaded on each side 5 working sets of 12-20 reps then free weight flys 60 lb dumbbells 5 working sets of 12 reps and i finish off with incline free motion cable flys 5 working set of whatever weight i can move. Each training day is something similar meaning that i am working around injury avoiding compressing my spine. It seems top be working... Not bad for a little guy

        I wish I could post huge numbers, nut I'm with Jim, my back don't handle heavy weights with deads or squats. I do light weight squats and sometimes light deads, but seldom go over 225. Most times I'm under 160 when I even do them.
        As far as bench, I will do 1 set of 5 once a month to assess progress. I never use barbells anymore for bench. DBs baby!

              I can't squat for shit. Like no flexibility in my shoulders so I end up forcing the bar onto my neck... It's a injury waiting to happen so I don't squat. Started stretching at home. Gunna get as flexible as I can so I can finally start squatting.

                  Wish the squat numbers were higher, but they've gotten better by leaps and bounds. I used to have a tendency to miss leg day lol

                        I used to be like that SO bad... But I got my mind out of 'liking' one workout over another. If you don't like them all and go into the gym equally as enthused then I find I'm not mentally prepared for it and fail.

                          I'm not a kid any more but I think I still push some decent weight. Don't do 1RM but below is current max weight I use when working out.

                          Deads 405x4
                          Squats 315x10
                          Bench 315x6

                            That's great magnus! I hope to get there soon. My deadlift days are over for the most part, and squats are light. I have back issues. But I'm slowly increasing weights and doing deads starting at mid-calf.

                              Thanks. I would like to squat heavier but I'll be 50 in a couple months and my knees are not in best shape.
