Thanks. I do realize that these gains will slow down. Like I said, I believe it's a combination of confidence on my training and also backing off of HIT that I was sold on for years (but with very little gains no matter what).

I still lift hard. Each set is very hard near max, but not failure at all.

I also abbreviate even further at times.

For example some push days I'll only do Dips & behind the neck presses.

I can't wait until my back is totally healed to add squats and deadlifts to the rotation.

If I can see 5-8 lbs of muscle gain each year then I'll be happy.

This stuff is simple stupid and I finally freed myself from ignoring what works: progression on the big lifts and a sensible diet.

Get in the gym work hard, and enjoy life - that's my thing now
