If you're a powerlifter I don't think you need to work OHP as a main lift either as 5/3/1 is set up. Sure, OHP is a good lift to drive your bench up but imo it would be even more productive to work on another cariation of the bench as the main lift on OHP day and do OHPs as an accessory lift. I could be wrong, but I think that replacing OHP as a main lift for the day with pin press, pause bench, board press or even incline bench would do more for your bench progress.

Besides, lots of overhead pressing can be bad on that joint depending on how you're built. Eric Cressey has written som good stuff on that.

Yea, if Eric Cressey saw me he would say I should never overhead press!

I don't know, a lot of people have a hard time developing their shoulders, especially lateral and rear delts.

Face pulls ftw

My argument was that its not necessary for a powerlifter to focus so much on direct shoulder work besides some rear delt prehab stuff and some OHP as accessory. I don't think giving the shoulders and OHP equal attention to the competition lifts is necessary for powerlifting.

But yeah, I agree on that a lot of lateral shoulder raises, face pulls so on could be needed for a bodybuilder to get a balanced physique. Coldsnap does not lift for aesthetics from my understanding.

Yeah i agree. Just don't neglect those rear delts.

Concept how often were you told to do the myofascial release and stretch on the back? I did it today and felt great although the double lacross ball in the back made me want to die. However I've managed to leave a few bruise marks from the lacross ball.

A little, rows are a lat dominant exercise. If you flare your arms out and pull higher you will hit your rear delts more which is a good thing when you are benching 300+ pounds.

Almost didn't go to the gym because I had a late lunch and wasn't sitting well. Said fuck it and went to do upper even though I did it on Tuesday. Hurt like fucking hell on my first set because I still have DOMS, so I said fuck it again and did deadlift/lower day anyways. Almost barfed but figured I'd just finish my set then clean it up if I did, they got wipes there for that kind of shit amirite. Feelsgoodman though to motivate myself to go, still pulling 385 even though I've been out of it for a while. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Was talking to my mate in the library about my 220kg pull. Some boy who was sitting next to me said "come back when you can leg press 220" is this real life?

Looking better, I'd say you're about 17% or so.

Not sure how I'd handle that. Probably not well.

Also, the worst thing that could possibly happen on a workout day just transpired:

Anyone have any idea why my hip would be hurting after squats?

 

I've never had anyone teach me proper form, that was probably a bad idea in hindsight. Just watched stuff on youtube and did what felt right.

 

The pain feels like it's in the tendons right below my hip bone, on the front of my body. Maybe my hip flexor? It hurts when I try to lift my leg up particularly high, and hurts more the more weight I try to squat with. I've stopped squating for a while, at least until I'm healed and figure out how to prevent it in the future.

 

I know it's usually impossible to diagnose someone over the internet, but maybe one of you've had this problem before.

 

I thought maybe I wasn't pushing my knees out enough, when I tried fixing that before I quit completely it helped but didn't fix the problem. leaning a bit more forward, but still keeping the back flat and weight on the heels, helped a bit too.

 

Oh yeah, symptoms occurred fairly shortly after starting to squat below parallel.
