I only lift 45 mins 3 x a week, but yoga for 1 hr 3 times a week, running 15 minutes everday and climbing/bouldering for 3 hrs 4 times a week, also even though I workout everyday think I need to only backload on lifting days, feel like climbing could count as a backload day but I can't eat that much all the time makes me feel shitty, literally.

1.5 hours/3 days a week doing SS.

Caught a cold and congested. Should I go to the gym today, or take it easy and go tomorrow?

Don't know how I forgot to post this, embarrassing lifting moments 2k12. In a clothes store with a friend they trying some shit on so I'm outside the changing room, massive ab and hamstring doms from good morning triples start flexing abs and hammies hard as fuck because it feels good man, reasonably hawt sales girl walks by whilst I'm flexing and smiles at me. Strain from the flexing causes me to inadvertently let out a massive loud fart, sales girl gives me a look of sheer disgust, have to wait there for 10 minutes whilst my mate finishes trying on clothes whilst everyone staring at me being like who the fucks that weird farting kid by himself. Feels bad man.

Can I get a BF% estimation here? I think around 14%

13-15% looks like a bit more than me but maybe it just looks like that because I have more muscle (weigh 15lbs more on same frame 1.5" taller or so)

1)

my upper body bench workout:
  • Bench 4x6
  • Superset incline db 3x8 then as many decline pushups as possible
  • Pullups 3x10
  • Bar Dips 3 x10

I'm stalling on bench progress. Can only manage 1 set of 5 bw. I also bench once a week. Only consolation is that I can bench more reps at lighter weights now.

Whats the issue? My lower body is way stronger (and bigger) than my upper. My OHP is also disproportionately strong compared to my bench (doing 50 kg for reps on OHP = should be hitting 80kg for bench, but no.....)

2)

On the subject of DLs, anyone here pull strictly with double overhand? I'm currently like this, but i find I cannot manage anything past 3 plates (need to use mixed grip). I guess just alternating which hand is supinated on alternate sets to prevent any imbalances?

Well that's kind of cheating isn't it

LIGHTING IS EVERYTHING.

I think it's been seen by the always shitty mirror fit pics from my apartment that I can't get dat sweet lighting. Better to overestimate than flex, photoshop, and shade myself to appear more defined.

For bench, how much weight are you pushing? Once you hit 1.5x bodyweight then you'll have to do much fewer reps for work sets. Try madcow 5x5 or 5/3/1 for good methods of progressing on bench once you get higher in weights. I think 4x6 and then then following two exercises might be too many reps for you. Try periodizing 2x12 @ 10rm one week, 2x8 @8rm next, then 2x5rm the third week, after that then recalculate weights. Are you always going until failure? If you are, then stop. Use a weight so you have one rep in the tank at least and try stopping then.

re: DL
I use double overhand for everything up to 315 to work on my grip strength. When I'm going for 1rms, I use alternating grip, and change grips each time. This is the method that Wendler recommends and I've found it works pretty well.
