Yes I believe the gym I have joined has the squat rack with pins but I don't think they have any benches to pull up to it.

Well practice squatting and find an appropriate depth for the pins so you can sink and dump if need be.

On bench you'll have to use dumbbells unless you can find a spotter or a bench that moves.

Cool

Just watched your "Dumb Questions" Video #5.

"Squishy Muscles"?

Could he not recognize the difference between a relaxed muscle and one that was being flexed hard?

One interpretation that renders the question semi-sensical...

Default Bulldozer (Density) + Full Body

Hey Steve, I'm a huge fan of Muscle & Strength and also your youtube channel. I wanted to ask you if you think it would be an okay choice to take the set to rep ratios that comes from your Bulldozer or Density workouts and use them for a Three-Day-A-Week Full Body workout? See, I love your theory of pause and rest from the bulldozer and density workouts but I am also a huge fan of the classic fullbody workouts like Reg Park and Arnold used, because I'm a fairly small kid (nineteen, 5'5", around 130lbs) and I would like fast gains.

That's a good question. I have been meaning to put the Bulldozer system into a fullbody, but haven't rushed to do so because there are a few variables I am not sure of. I think if you limit things to a max of 5 sets per day on one exercise it should probably work ok. I would start there are see how it goes.

Bench press, and all bench press variations. They are so good for front delts that many bodybuilders I know have amazing front delts and avoid direct work.

If bench presses aren't working, one thing I really like is the front plate raise. Grade a 25 or 45 pound plate on the side with 2 hands and do a 100 rep set. Your front delts will hate you.

Arnold presses might not be a bad option as well.

Absolutely. Post them up.

How many calories are you eating per day?
