I figure if you are taking prohormones than it should help combat your pain and fatigue...

Anyway, here's something to try for warmups that works for me.
We'll say your max is 315..
1.135 X 12 (slow tempo)
*rest 1 minute
2.135 X 10 (tempo of 3-1-0; down for 3, hold for 1, explode up)
*rest 2 minutes
3.185 X 5 (3-1-0)
*rest 1 minute
4.225 X 3 (3-1-0)
*rest 1 minute
5.275 X 1 (3-1-0)
*rest 1 minute
6.295 X 1 (3-1-0)
*rest 2 minutes
Set 1: 315 X (whatever)

- The first 3 sets are warmup sets to get the blood moving into your chest.
- The last 3 sets are weight acclimation sets getting your joints and ligaments accustomed to the heavy load.
Doing my warmups this way takes some time, but enables me to go really heavy on ALL my sets instead of pyramiding up. For people to pyramid up, usually they go too light on the first 2-3 sets so it's a wasted effort. ;)
