    I'm new to the forum. 50 years old, 5'11", 195 lbs. I enjoy lifting weights. It's good for you. Anyway, here's today's workout:

    225x5
    315x5

    4-6 Second Paused Squats-
    350x2
    365x2
    375x2
    385x2
    405x1

    Leg Press-
    720x5x4
    720x10

    Well, all the benches were in use when I got to the gym. I had to switch things up a bit:

    Military Press-

    45lbs x10
    65lbs x10
    105lbs x5
    125lbs x5
    145lbs x7

    Weighted Pull Up-

    +25lbs x 7
    +35lbs x 7
    +45lbs x10

    Bench Press-

    185lbs x5
    225lbs x5
    255lbs x5

    I should have added 10 or 20 lbs to the last bench set but, oh well.

    Finished up with cable crossovers, machine pec flys and machine curls.

    Next up, deadlift.

    Welcome.

    I gather you lift twice a week. For a casual lifter you lift heavy weights, young man.

    How helpful do you find the auxiliary lifts?

    Thank you, sir. I try to lift at least 2 times per week.

    You know, it depends on the lift. I consider the leg press an auxiliary lift that's very helpful. Some others like leg extensions and machine curls probably aren't doing much besides adding volume.
