Eww...supplements & creative. Not my style. Then again I've tried to take protein supplements and couldn't stand the gritty / chalky taste I had associated with it no matter what I mixed with. Just not for me. Kudos if it works, I just prefer the good ol way of adjusting my diet to suit my needs.

I need to incorporate more running into my workout regime. Also, anyone have any tips for increasing bench? I seem to be stuck at the 3x5, 175lb. My dumbbell press is constantly going up but my not my barbell bench.. Dumbbell is at a 3x5, 80lb dumbbells...Kinda weird I bench for 160 (2x 80lb dumbbells) with no stabilizers (bar) but struggle with 175lb weight that's stabilized (barbell).

Change the location of your arms, moving them outward normal allows you more reps.

Do a set of 100, 100x...do this over 5-10 minutes I like 25 reps then taking little breather just keep pushing until your ams collapse it will build muscle FAST.

Make sure you have good form...ie feet planted, dont bounce bar, dont arch back.

Also when your brining the bar down let it fall and catch it right before it hits your chest then explode up if you slowly bring it down your using muscles.

Don't let it fall. That's just allowing your muscles to relax. Do every strength workout in slow motion, it burns MUCH more.
