Default will my bottles explode

Hey there ive brewed a lager and i put a couple of extra cups of dextrose in to bump the alcohol up. when it finishes fermenting it should be about 1010 on the hydro , just wondering if i still need to prime my bottles the same as always or put less sugar in cause i heard higher gravity beers can explode when in the bottle thanks for any help with this one.

If you let the beer finish fermenting before bottling, the bottles won't blow up. The beginning gravity really doesn't have anything to do with bottle bombs. Bottle bombs are usually caused by bottling beer before it's completely done fermenting, or using way too much priming sugar.
