    Knowing me, sticking to a diet for 48 hours is pretty good.

    Train your chest and eat more calories than you burn :)

    If you want something a bit more focused, I would vary your rep range. Have one day where you focus on lower reps, and another where you incorporate higher reps, but I wouldn't go above, say, 10 reps (although I have incorporated max pushups for 3 sets).

    Felt sick as a dog all day at work.

    Just got back from my squat session.

    Fell 100% better. Like a new man.

    Squats (435x2x5) felt super light and fast too.

    tbh weighted dips did more for my chest size than flat bench (mine is all shoulders and tri tho)

    damn bro that posture is going to be a mother fucker to fix, nothing short of breaking your back and putting it back together. dat kyphosis, internally rotated shoulders, and short pecs.

    I don't even know what to do anymore. Been doing MobilityWOD this month. Lower back is screwed. This what happens when you sit down every day for 8 hours. Call centre work is great. Stay in school kids.

    I dropped my weight down to work on my dead lift form.

    How's my starting position look (hips too low/high)? How does my back look in the second video

    Thanks in advance guys

    Your first pull you shot up with your hips and that caused your upper body to lean forward more. The other reps looked better, mainly because your hips were in a higher starting position. Your back looked fine. Both of your first reps looked out of sequence, but then the following reps were better. Just don't be in a hurry to lock those knees on your first pull

    TW you loose your tightness right when you pull and loose position, but the second rep looks good. I'd reset between every rep.


    Yea, I'm sure you got some probs with lower back. I have no clue how to address that stuff though cause all my problems were with shoulders. Maybe you should consider a career change? With your work and your current posture tbh I don't know if you could fix it. The problem is you really need to strengthen your thoracic spine, back of the neck, and scapula.. but with posture like that you wont be able to get into the correct positions and could just make the problem worse lifting. So

    1) Do a SHIT ton of soft tissue work: pec smash, t spine, lats, neck, front of neck
    2)Do mobility - T spine extensions on foam roller, t-spine rotations, bretzels, Wall angels, etc
    3)Strengthen the area: start with this PDF and do chin tucks

    OR you should hire someone. Like the dude from 70s big

    had a planned morning + evening session today, but it seems that being the plate change douche does is surprisingly tasking.

    its fucking ridiculous but i was really spent from changing plates for 5 hours

    evening session was complete shit
