    Yeah that's sort of what I do for most lifts, which is rest paused sets. Most of my lift are 20-30rp meaning I do 3 sets to failure (i.e. as many reps as possible) and try to hit that rep total and if I do then plate up. I don't really do that for chins/pulls though, right now I do 3 sets and try to hit as many as possible and if I hit 8 on the first set plate up next time. My weight scheme is BW+35, BW, BW right now for those, and as I weight up basically turns into a rest paused drop set (I think my chest dip is BW+100, BW+90, BW+80 or something).

    I think it'll just come over time. It'll really help when I cut down so I can transfer that body weight to plates hah.

    I'm gonna stick with BB rows but I think back off the weight a bit to see if I can get the form down better. Maybe do DB rows for a short while to hit stabilizers and improve form/control before moving back to BB, I don't know.

    PS I've been doing this to failure stuff for so long I don't think I could go back, I don't see how you guys can feel accomplished when you have more reps in you but stop, it just doesn't make much sense to me.

    fwiw thats how ex trains people and you've been trained by him so... what was the routine he gave you anyways? i altered mine to work around no lower stuff and i made great size/strenght progress for months on it.

    BB Row 3x6
    #3 band pullup 2xfailure
    #3 band chinup 2xfailure
    Band 1-arm seated row 2x20
    DB Shrug 3x15
    Prone trap raise 3x10
    Grip work: 2x30s static holds, 2x30s plate pinch

    Tuesday - Lower bench
    Paused bench 2x5
    Paused db bench 2x10
    Slight Incline fly 2x10
    Band upright row 2x20
    Band pullapart 2x20
    Skullcrusher 2x10
    BB curl 2x10 SS/ w Band tricep pushdown 2x20

    Thursday - Back
    Pullup - 20 reps total
    Chinup - 10 reps total
    DB Row 2x10
    BB Shrug 3x10
    Trap raise 3x10
    Grip work - 2x30s static holds, 2x30s plate pinch

    Friday - Upper bench
    Pin press 2x5
    Guillotine press 2x10
    DB Pullover 2x10
    DB Shoulder press 2x10
    JM Press 2x10
    Band face pull 2x20
    DB Curl 2x10 SS w/ Band tricep pushdown 2x20

    i would probably drop the pullups/chins on thursday and add in 2x5 deads 2x10 squats / 2x5 squats 2x10 deads rotating weekly for your purposes, but this was designed around my equipment limitations and preferences so yeah. this swoled me up pretty good though

    ^ I do use a lot of stuff I learned from EX. There was some stuff I didn't like though.

    If I were to do zig zag, at 5'7 175lbs this would look right?

    Same here, ate a giant plate of pulled pork and meatballs and am starting to doze off at my desk.

    On average how much higher than a squat should a deadlift be? I feel like my dead is shameful low, but because I squat every day my back and legs are usually pretty roasted by the time i'm deadlifting, is there a broscience equation to figure out where my dead should be in relation to my other lifts?

    Yeah, but by how much? I'm repping 350 on my squat and only pulling 375 on my deadlift work set.

    depends on your leverages. When I pull sumo my ROM is tiny because I have very long arms so my deadlift has always been much stronger then my squat. Pulled 120kg when my squat was like 50kg when I just started. Seems to be the really strong raw lifters like stan efferding have lower deadlifts then there squats, don't know at what point that happens, seems to be at like 700lb.

    In that chick's defense, I bet she was talking about the liquid shakes - Ensure, Muscle Milk, and whatnot - which aren't really a great deal, especially when compared to powder. U dun goofed, bro, you will never boink that duck mouthed skeletor now.

    If you're squatting 350 for legitimate reps, I don't think you should be the person asking questions, you should be answering them.

    (unless you're a total newb who has been blessed with amazing genetics)

    Anyone ever gotten an abdominal hernia? I think I either strained the shit out of an ab muscle, tore the shit out of an ab muscle, or blew that motherfucker out. Hurts.
