Thanks! Yea, I do look a lot better. Still not jacked enough though!

Go to the Sheiko forums, download the program for lifters above 80kg and run it for just the bench. For your max, put in only 10 pounds above your current max. Run all three cycles in the spreadsheet and do a max test at the end.

When you're done with that, do it all over with the program for lifters under a bw of 80kg. It has higher volume and will thus be suited for your second go.

I use to get neck / shoulder pain from squat days. My squat day is something like 90 reps. My strongman fried suggested getting a mouthguard because having something to bite down on puts the neck in a better position. I think it actually helped..

Any stretches or movements recommended to help correct shoulder imbalance? I can retract my right shoulder much farther back than my left, due to playing baseball for 12+ years. I always feel unstable with bench and squats because I can't get a symmetric base in my upper back. This referred to as "chicken wing"?

@barrelntrigger, if you want to be a powerlifter, then train like one. Exhibit A: Conceptionist.

Two guys at my gym do this. They both squat well over 500

I don't want to be a powerlifter because that requires doing 1RM every so macro. I just want to do 1RM once every whenever I feel like it.

Because, you know, why go with the tried and true training regiments when you've got broscience.

+1 on shoulder work and general shoulder/arm flexibility suggestions/routines

I want to switch to a front squat to save my back and build my quads but I cant clean grip for shit. I can't bend my elbow past like 110 degrees
