Chest day is next for me too. Fire it this way, I'm up for the challenge.  ;D

I actually feel like I've been making some pretty decent gains within the last month since my gym re-opened. Perhaps I'll post some pics at some point.

Chest workout! ;D  I know I am a bit late.

Inline Dumbell presses
 This is what I start with I do 2 warmup sets then pick a weight that I can do 5 more sets with and that will allow me to do 8 or so reps per set.
 Next up is the Hammerstrength machines, I go to the Wide Grip Press first.  One set of 15 reps. You should be hurting a bit on the 15th rep.  Then 5 more sets with again a weight that will allow you 8 or so reps.  Not wimping out here, you should hardly be able to squeeze out that 8th rep. Don't break form either.
 Next up is the deline machine, again 1 warmup sets with 15 reps, then same deal as the first 2 exercises.  except, this time you are only doing 4 sets.
 To finsih, I go to a close grip bench.  I use the hammer strength press for this, and I do 2 sets to target the upper chest and 2 sets to target the mid/lower chest.  So just adjust the seat to the correct heights for yourself.  The handles should be at about your shoulders for the upper and mid-lower for the finishing 2 sets.  I use this exercise as full on burner sets, I use a fairly light weight, and do real slow controlled reps until I just can't do anymore on each set.
I hope tis helps out someone who wants to try something new.
 Keep in mind, I only do one main muscle group a day.  So I try to totally destroy that muscle group.  You shouldn't even be able to really flex the muscle when you are done.
 My weekly routine at the moment is this.
Day 1:  Chest and Calfs
Day 2:  Back and abs
Day 3:  Shoulders and Hammies
Day 4:  Off
Day 5:  Quads
Day 6:  Arms and abs
Day 7:  Repeat cycle.
I know it is only one day off, but the workouts aren't that long at all, I am usually done in about an hr max. :o  But then again, I hardly take any time off in between sets. ;D
 So there it is.  I will post up the Leg, Shoulder, Back workouts over the next litt ;)le while.

How many repetitions is considered as a set ?

Reps are the amount of times you do the specific movement. Sets are how many times you do that specic exercise. For example bench Press

Set 1: 4 reps
Set 2: 8 reps
Set 3: 10 reps
Set 4: 12 reps

That should explain it.

I've been steadily at it all fall. Still haven't been able to bulk up too much but I've got wicked cardio right now. I've recently started doing some HIIT training, which has really helped. Anyone else do anything similar?

Here's a recent pic. It's probably about 2 weeks old but you get the idea.
