    Stinger70: I did a total curlbro routine while waiting for my lower back to heal from a strain. Keep your diet up and keep progressing with weight and you'll put on some nice upper body mass no problem.

    I dont think my form is bad at all. It happened after a painless set of 3rm squats. The next day it was in agony, but nothing during the set or immediatley after. I think my flexors are just so short and tight that they cant take heavy weights. I have anterior pelvic tilt as well, so i'm obviously completley fucked in that area.


    Yeah i dont see why i wont gain, everyone else in the gym does it. My legs have stayed pretty big since i did SS, they dont seem so keen to shrink like my upper body is. I'm aiming to go from 185-200lb over the summer so hopefully i will add a load to my upper body lifts and look a lot better for it.

    Worked upper back/biceps hard as hell today. Tomorrow I'm taking it easy with some light core work. Then on Saturday, I'm finally going to get that coveted 4 plate back squat. Can't wait. :slayer:

    If you guys are reinjuring yourself over and over, it's worth changing up the routine possibly.

    Foam roll, stretch. Maybe try deep bulgarian split squats, isomettric holds, etc.

    So perhaps a dumb question:

    I've recently started doing Clean and Jerk every once in a while just to develop some dad strength. This is in addition to all the normal compounds and other exercises throughout the week. Other than just being badass -- would there be an actual benefit to doing Snatches as well?

    guess I could wax poetic about how it requires awesome ROFD and is super good mobility work, but srsly the benefit of snatching is getting better at snatching.

    TKJTG of you want something that's fun and explosive and translates into a lot of other stuff you should check out KB's.

    Oh and btw....



    A little over 3 weeks out from competition time!



    I'm excited for the next two weeks of training where heavy singles come into effect.

    The second week will be one single each of my "second attempt" numbers.

    I put that in quotations because they might go up or down depending on how heavy/light they feel.

    But the second week I should be doing:


    • Squat - 475
    • Bench - 310
    • Deadlift - 525


    If those go well, the plan is to hit 500/330/550 for a total of 1380 and I'll get that Master total at 198's.
