    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Why don't you just do incline bench?

    Did em Monday 5 x 10 and it was overhead press day today. Felt good but I think the problem with incline bench is my chest is way weaker than delts and traps, so chest is done 4 reps in then everything else takes over. But incline bench is a big focus this cycle.

    Since your main goal seems to be growing your pecs I'd do 2 chest days and just hit some light presses and lateral raises after. You're only hitting chest once a week aren't you?

    +1 on Fuji's advice.
    You don't really need a separate "shoulders day" (or separate day for any bodypart, for that matter). The shoulders are gonna get grow just fine from flat benching, incline pressing and some overhead presses every now and then. If you're a powerlifter I don't think you need to work OHP as a main lift either as 5/3/1 is set up. Sure, OHP is a good lift to drive your bench up but imo it would be even more productive to work on another cariation of the bench as the main lift on OHP day and do OHPs as an accessory lift. I could be wrong, but I think that replacing OHP as a main lift for the day with pin press, pause bench, board press or even incline bench would do more for your bench progress.

    Besides, lots of overhead pressing can be bad on that joint depending on how you're built. Eric Cressey has written som good stuff on that.

    I have FK frees. They messed up my foot but I wear orthotics so that doesn't really mean anything. My GF has a pair and likes them though.

    Also coldsnap you should do chest 2x a week you can totally handle that.
