check out his routine on ironaddicts, mine is very similar. its a 4 day dead/bench/squat/bench assistance. as far as switching to a volume routine i had a bad case of the mondays and wanted to change things up. it was a lot of fun and a nice mental break from max weights every week. i started out doing a strength/size routine, did a volume routine, and am now doing strength a straight strength routine and am aiming to do a meet early next year. definitely enjoying strength the most so far

Since we're talking about trainers, another good one I heard, Josh Bryant.

Today's health and exercise thought - I hate the cunt who bought the spinlock barbell which fell down in my cage and whacked me on my leg.

Does incline db have more of a carryover to sports compared to flat bar bench?

I switched up my routine yesterday, did incline dbs before flat bench and my bench suffered = struggling on last rep.

edit: was told to do incline db first by my gym trainer. He advised incline > flat bench > dips for best sports carryover.

How has been the process of his diet recommendations? On the phone he pretty much said most his clients he drops them down to single digit bodyfat and builds them up from there. Have you been through this process?

Wider grip doesn't help. What kind of exercises do you recommend? At the moment I am doing shoulder dislocations and arm circles. I think my triceps and wrists are the problem areas.

Two thoughts:

 

Feel like taking a picture of your front rack position? A lot easier to tell what looks wrong that way.

 

Do you have trouble getting your elbows all the way up?

Not sure about picture. I could try on Friday.

Yes, I have trouble getting my elbows up. My forearms are also longer than my upper arms.

Length shouldn't be an issue I don't think. So yeah, get a band. Wrap it around something solid. Stand facing away from whatever the band is wrapped around, and use the band to really get into a good front rack position (one arm at a time). Focus on keeping your hand in close to your body, and getting your elbow up.

He uses different methods, but he's fond of zig-zagging calories and sticking to the same macros. I've always liked that myself since you're still eating carbs every day, which I think makes it seem less like a diet.

If he's re-setting your metabolism, you can forget about the cheat days for a while. Obviously a cheat meal here or there is fine, but if he's going to be leaning you out first, your highest calorie day won't come close to what I recall your totals being that one time you shared the details of that day's calorie and macro intake.

Don't know about sports, but more carry over to aesthetics nam sayin?

a good stretch for the front rack position (given to me by my coach) is to utlilize two barbells and a squat stand/rack/whatever. first set up the stand so the first barbell is about upper chest height (about where where your elbows will be), then take the second barbell and rack it, for the stretch part rest your elbows on the static barbell in the rack and hold for 30-60 sec.

hope that's a crap enough explanation for what I meant lol

3 weeks into bulk, 5lb gained

chest: 0"
arms: 0"
waist: 0"

I miss noob gains when my arms grew half an inch in 2 weeks. The patience is not strong in this one.

yeah you will probably zig-zag your calories and then end up doing a cheat day method somewhere down the line. dont stress too much man, just go along for the ride
