Yeah, I wasn't really serious as its pretty ridiculous for me to even think about gaining that much.

 

Hard to tell how far I can go on this bulk since I haven't been this heavy before, but I estimate to be around 12-13% atm.

That would leave room for maybe another 10-15 pounds which would put me at 200 or so. I think I'm holding a lot of water too since I'm on dat dere creatine and a high carb diet.

 

Right now I'm thinking 225 pounds at decent leanness for my long term goal.

Omg guys.  The girls in this Thursday yoga class I don't usually go to.  I'm going every week from now on.

I think I'll start to look pretty decent at around 5'10", 220lbs and 8% bf.

After being stuck at 195 on press for some embarrassing amount of time (like 18 months), I went 200, 205, 210 tonight (hitting a BW press finally at 205). Felt like a god.

As for bench assistance work, I'm sure it's not the most efficient way to improve, but I've always wanted to do a planche, and so I've started doing a bunch of gymnastic style handstand work. Besides being a ton of fun, I'm definitely seeing carryover to my presses. In addition to my above PR, I also hit 325x2 on bench recently after stalling at 315 for a good while.

Still sitting at like 20% bf, and I'm 6'2", so I look like a little bitch though.

Anyone here do rack pulls? Thinking of adding them to my training to help dead lift lock out

Of course. I rotate traditional and deficit DLs with rack pulls. Mainly do racks when I want to feel stronger than I actually am. My main struggle is off the floor (sumo style) and once the bar is ~6" off ground, it's almost a guaranteed lockout once I slam legs straight.

The way I see most people doing rack pulls they're basically a vanity exercise to move huge weight. Most racks I've seen don't have pins low enough. I ocassionally do them off very short blocks like 2" high and they feel much better then off pins.

Is your problem with heavy DLs really the lockout Mark?
Most people finish the pull once they pass mid shin/knee. Their weakness is then actually the bottom part and deficit or pause DLs would be good accessory.

With a rounded back deadlift though the lockout is in fact often the problem as a rounded back makes its easier to break the bar off the floor but puts you in a worse position when its time to lock out. Block/rack pulls from mid shin/knee (not too high as the carryover seem to disappear then) are good and for sumos you have Sumo stance DB swings and for conventional you have good mornings.

Lockout could def be your main problem but many people read their weaknesses wrong. For raw lifters the bottom parts of the lifts are usually their problem whereas for geared lifters its often the lockout.

Total bro science shot in the dark but I want to say lockout problems are probably from a weak booty

He got a weak booty so I call him weak booty.
