    knee wraps!=knee sleeves. either way, sleeves wouldn't be the only thing preventing from your knees blowing out. just pony up for rehbands, i am glad i did. feels good man.

    It's not the sleeves for me, I don't find they actually add any weight they just make the movement smoother. It's the belt, outside of those 2 weeks were I tried to squat high bar with a narrow stance I can't remember the last time I squatted or pulled 2 plates without a belt

    it's not a quad dominant lift but you're wasting power if you don't use your quads, because yes then you'd be SL deadlifting which is fucking stupid if you want to lift maximal weight.

    Progress pic. This is me today at 195lbs. A full 60lbs heavier than I was two years ago. Plan is to put on five more pounds then cut down to 185lbs. Looking at this though I am still feeling a bit DYEL. Edit: Sorry for the huge picture.

    True, but any insurance is good enough. I do need to warm my legs up more before I get to working weight but these will help.

    Well spotted, I definitely have a low shoulder girdle which accentuates the traps. Had fairly pronounced traps even before I started lifting. I am very focused on my (lack of) lats, anyone have suggestions on what I can do? Below is my routine.

    Day 1: Upper body push - bench and bench assist (paused bench, incline bench, flys etc)
    Day 3: Lower body - usually good mornings and GHRs - have been having knee issues which has precluded me from squatting and DLing
    Day 5: Upper body pull - pull ups, machine pull down, rows, bent over rows, face pulls
    Day 7: Repeat of lower body day

    I havent focused on triceps and I agree I dont really have any. I dont care a ton about them for aesthetics but I suppose they would improve my bench.
