Beastly Charly. Good luck. I'm about to go get my gear checked and do some real light stuff on their equipment so I can get a feel of competition bars. Weigh ins is at the meet.

Lunges, hill sprints, box jumps, leg extensions... there are a million things you can do what is your goal?

Why?

Prowler pushes.

I just want something new honestly, and my goal is to stay in motion the entire workout.

Been on that Lagging Shoulders Crew for quite some time. Today said fuck it and tried doing something different...lowered the weight on lateral raises and focused on keeping my scapulae stationary throughout the movement. Holy shit that hit my lateral delts harder than I'd ever experienced before and had crazy pump afterwards. I think I might be on to something here.

I do lateral raises with pretty light weights for high reps and keep the range of movement pretty limited to keep the tension on the lateral head.

Works for me.

For lateral DB raises I like to lead with my pinky instead of my knuckles. Makes the line of action go more through the lateral head and just feels better.

But I have stopped doing those since I found the lateral raise machine. Love it. Can go up in ~2-3% weight increments, don't need to worry about grip. Just wish they had equivalent machines for chest and lats.

I started doing push presses on bench days for shoulders since my press hasn't moved in a month.  Does anyone have any other book recommendations? Starting strength and the 5/3/1 book (thank you!) were really helpful.

Depends on what you want really, but some good ones I have are:

 

"Beyond Brawn", Stuart McRobert (general, good tips)

"Greyskull LP", Johnny Pain (nothing spectacular, but the program is very close to IFC 5x5 which you're running, right?)

"Maximum Muscle" & "Squat Every Day", Matt Perrymann (both are really good, but might not be you're looking for. Not strictly related to lifting. Covers other areas such as biology, neuroscience, philosophy, etc)

"Supertraining", Yuri Verkhoshansky & Mel C. Stiff (looks great. haven't started yet)

Some off Jason Ferrugia's work. His books are more bro-ey than scientific but there are some good stuff, especially his Renegade Diet.

Not really a fitness book per se but Dune has probably changed my perspective in my life and fitness more than any other read.

Did my own quick and dirty powerlifting total in RHET solidarity with Mr Charly today. Put up a 290 pause bench, 385 high-bar a2g squat, and 495 conventional deadlift (tried for 505 on a fourth to break through the 5xx barrier, but I was gassed by then.... funny how 10 more lbs can seem so much heavier). Fairly pleased since this was zero prep, no wraps or belt, and I pretty much never deadlift or bench press. I feel like some moderate attention to those lifts could lead me to a 1300 total fairly quickly.

But alas I do love my cleans, jerks (made 152kg rack jerk easy last week), and snatches way more, so my powerlifting total will probably not be seeing rapid improvement anytime soon.

Saw the meet Charly; bad luck hopefully back better than ever next year :)
