post #49066 of 57266
I came to the realization yesterday that I squat my deadlifts. I am part of the problem. My hips are too low when I go into the lift, slightly above knee level. Tried to address it but was having a hard time keeping my hips higher. Pulled off of blocks instead and it was incredible, felt much more hip torque and power through my quads and hamstrings. Not sure what this all means but this is RHET so I don't suppose I have to.

Wonder what that's about. You might not be using your glutes enough or have much stronger quads than glutes.

I can't deadlift anymore. Any time I have any kind of regular deadlift volume my back gets nuked. But I can take months off and come back and pull 400 and something. Im gonna hit a set maybe once every 3-4 months

The reason your back gets sore is because you don't train it often enough, and prob because of some fault in your technique.

If you never force your body to adapt to deadlift training, they will always cause soreness. It is like people doing brosplits with once a week frequency and getting way more sore than with 3-5 times per week frequency. My legs and back was extremely sore when I went back to squatting and deadlifting after only benching for 2 months, but after 3 weeks my body as adapted and I'm not as sore any longer.

Any protein on sale? Need some whey.

I used to see BOGO deals all the time, especially on sites with coupon stacks like vitacost. In the last year or so I've noticed that the only deals involve a free pack of some crappy energy boost with protein purchase. Fuck that.

Even when I dropped the weight by 100lbs and upped volume to 2x/wk it was the same problem. And I'm not usually sore starting out... its usually after about a month. Strength and capacity for deads just trails off. If it was low frequency or technique I'd be sore right away. I think it's something else.

PLing isn't a priority right now anyway.... I might revisit them after my cut next year but overall right now I'm in bro mode.

Ok.
I'm not saying that you should DL. There are many other ways to build the back and legs. If you're only gonna do it a couple times per year you might as well skip it altogether imo.

40% off MyProtein entire website. Enter Discount code BLACKFRI at checkout. I think the code's still good.

Dunno if it's still going, but Vitamin Shoppe had a pretty good deal for 10lbs of BSN or ON whey

EDIT: I've also been doing some unilateral movements (split squats), I think that should help too right?

yeah unilateral stuff will help if you use even technique and rom. your left ankle mobility is worth investigating too.

Haven't been here in a while. Interviewed at Booth and Stern, will probably end up at Booth. Not too hyped on NYC schools. Tuck doesn't sound too appealing as it's in the middle of nowhere.

Been only working on upper since injuring my back. My back feels fine but I'm just worried I'm going to reinjure it. I'll probably start lower again this week. Also going to prep some meals today for the week.

Could I get away with just doing lateral raises for shoulders

Front delts = benching (especially close grip)
Rear delts = T bar rows

Im gonna give it a try this week and see how I feel
post #49078 of 57266
Assuming volume is sufficient I don't see how that would be a problem.
I essentially do the same thing.
I only do overhead pressing once a week and it's usually something like 2 sets of 20-30 on DB overhead or land mine overhead press or setting. Just pump work. The rest of my delt work is from pressing. Only true "shoulder" work I do is laterals and spider crawls twice a week.
I also think the best movement for front delts is incline benching anyway, and EMG studies seem to back that up.

Yea I will see how it goes. Gonna superset it with my curls. 6 sets... that Dianabol pump teacha.gif

Also found a decent intraworkout supp. Peanuts! Every now and then I would have a Bojangles biscuit for my pre-workout meal and I found them to help with energy. Seems like no sugar and a good amount of fat work best for me. Should go nicely with my HBCDs

I am now a part time teacher at the LSE teaching introductory accounting and statistics. Is this real life? Get $70 an hour. Must be so shit to go to one of the most elite universities in the country and then got taught by me.
