I do deadlifts without a belt, is this a bad idea? I am almost up to 3 plates aside.

Depends on whether you feel you benefit from it. Deadlifting, regardless of weight, is not inherently dangerous if your technique is right.

If you feel like you can pull more or you feel safer with a belt then go for it. I personally prefer to pull 100% raw - in fact, the times I've tried with a belt just felt awkward.

Maybe just wear it for your top sets?

RE: Today's Workout Thread
I need some more exercises for improving the quality of my pecs. I'm not looking for much mass, in fact I'm satisfied with what I have for the most part. What I would like to improve is the bottom of my pecs, the outside, and also make my chest just a tad wider.

I tore my Glute and a spinal muscle doing deads. I was maxing out without a belt and did some pretty nasty damage. My leg strength is forever weaker. Try the belt, see how it feels.

the belt does nothing for that
it's purely for preventing hernias

What does everyone do to keep their belly flat? I don't want a 6 pack but just flat as possible. Should I just start jogging more? I'm already skinny and try not to do it to much so I can keep as much meat on me as possible.

I think that a flat gut is 80% diet and 20% exercise lifestyle. So basically do sprints and eat clean.
What about using a jump rope? Would that help keep the belly down or what body parts does it work out?

A lot of combat athletes believe that a jump rope is a good sprint replacement and I'm inclined to agree. You can lose a ton of weight and develop an impressive level of conditioning with nothing but a jump rope.
I don't know if it will prevent a gut as well as good diet but most people report success with it. You can probably get down to 8-10% body fat without any huge issues.

Thanks Hades. I always see boxers hitting the jump rope hard as hell. Do you think I should jog/sprint once a week and do the jump rope another day? I try to do weights one day and cardio the next. Keep going back and forth. I get a skinny fat body so it's kind of tricky.

I'm not sure if the idea of training upper/lower and inner/outer pecs is just bro-science or legit.

But that being said, I'd recommend decline DB flyes - you'll need a spotter to help set you up (depending on how heavy you go) but it's worth it.

I like to do them at the end of my chest workout - 5 x 8 using a weight I could get for 12, with 30 seconds rest. Pump like crazy.

That sounds like a good plan. Lifting one day, then alternate jog or jump rope on the second is pretty solid.
I can recommend Ross Enamait's "Jump Rope Conditioning for Athletes". It's pretty good and cheap.

Really the whole "no cardio when doing weights" dogma is a little overhyped because it doesn't take into account training goals. You can build an impressive physique even if you do quite a bit of running and jumping rope. Now, sure, if you want to bulk 20 pounds of lean body mass the first thing to go is running, but if you just want to maintain or gain strength while at the same bodyweight it's not going to hurt anything.

Thumb up
Thats an impressive triceps routine, How much do you weigh?

I can currently do five reps of 70 lbs dips but not with 24 reps of lighter weight beforehand. Do you do any other triceps exercises like the prone triceps extension “skullcrusher" and triceps kickback or do you just stick with dips?

Thank you

I only weigh 160 lbs. I'm in the military so over the years my body has adapted well to moving itself with the weight of gear on. I don't do any isolation work at all. My other go-to exercises for pushing movements are the KB clean and press and the bench press.

I thought it was going to be like jogging, but I was dying after 20 seconds. I guess because I don't put my legs high in the air when running like I am with the jump rope.
