    Hey guys, I’ve been trying to hit 100lbs dumbbells for a very long time. I’m stuck at 90lbs for 4. It has been months. I’m in a surplus, gaining weight very slowly each month, my boxes are all checked as far as lifestyle goes(stress, sleep etc..). My top set is 85lbs for 7 clean reps. In days that I feel strong I try to go for 90×5 but I just can’t get passed those 4 reps. Do you guys have any tips, advise..?

    Should I just stick with the 90s until I reach 5 and then work my way up to 7 and repeat or should I just try to increase the reps with 85 up to 8,9 reps, then go for the 90s?

    Thanks in advance

    I’ll put my head down and keep working.
    I do indeed have monkey arms 😅

    Thanks to both of you for the response. I always loved training but you two were able to bring that love to another level. Thank you for the info you provide in this app and on social media. This passed year using the app I completely changed my body, my perspective and knowledge of training for the better. If I got to this point is because of your programs.
    In my eyes you two are the top trainers in the industry for general population as well as pro BB. 🙏🏻
