    I have a strong back though :( I can row more than I can bench. My program has like a 3/1 or 4/1 pull to push ratio. I see what you're saying though. Here's my friends answer too

    yes your friend sound rights but you probably have shit for scapular stability and/or your pecs are too tight.

    Whats a good test / retest for scapular stability? I know I have tight pecs but it's not too bad because I pass all the assessments on "Assess and correct", I've been doing a ton of soft tissue work in that area (myself and seeing a massage therapist) and stretches.

    I'm trying to build scapular stability with my workouts and I am improving.

    Here's my workouts, maybe I'm missing something:

    Every workout I start with soft tissue work in the area I'm lifting in and do mobility stuff from Magnificent Mobility and Assess and Correct.

    Monday
    Banded Pullups 5x5
    Overhead Press 5x5
    Facepulls 4 x 12
    Front/Side Lat Raises 4 x 8
    Barbell Curls 4 x 10
    Grip Work
    Abs

    Tuesday
    Deadlift 5x5
    Banded Good Mornings 5 x 10
    Leg Press 5 x 10
    Bridges 5 x 10
    Grip Work
    Abs

    Thursday
    Flat Dumbell Bench 5x10
    Bent over Barbell Rows 4 x 10
    Incline Dumbell Bench 3 x 10
    Inverted Smith Rows 4 x 10
    Band Pull Aparts 4 x 10
    Cable Rows 4 x 10
    Abs

    Friday
    Lunges 5 x 8
    Banded Abducters / adducters 3 x 15
    Banded Leg Curls 4 x 12
    Calf Raises 4 x 12
    Abs

    I think it's just going to be a slow burn. My plan of attack is soft tissue work, mobility, strengthening, and sleeping on my back with palms up throughout the night. I think if I just stick to this and not let anything deter me from the course I should have it healed up. I've just learned how hard healing an injury is and it doesn't happen over night. One muscle strain can cause 4 other muscles to become messed up.

    I would really like to know as well. I understand saving and all..I don't wear a suit at all and I've purchased the Long Wolf engineer boots and some Mister Freedom stuff..but that still isn't Rick Owens status

    I've got two Aldens to my name and a really nice bike. Rest Uniqlo. That's my claim to fame.

    I've got a bunch of shoes that I'm trying to unload. Realized I really like when my shoes don't have much if any heel to toe drop...

    that means you can shop at Banana Republic with dat Gap discount for some supa steez. For real though, prior to my SF knowledge I would buy BR with my gap discount and get all that stuff tailored.
