    your call, from what I've heard though that stuff isn't really so great... then again, if your gym leans at all to the 'no chalk' -side of things it's probably the better choice.

    Hmm, I heard the liquid stuff is grippy as hell and banned in powerlifting comps for that reason. Maybe I was mislead.

    I don't think I've ever used normal chalk, but yeah the liquid stuff is great. Never missed a lift from grip using it and it usually lasts a whole session after being applied once.

    Is it worth changing out my deadlift assistance work for something more deadlift specific. Doing front squats now for 5x10 very light, but i'm thinking of doing a high pull or something. I know it doesn't really matter because it's just assistance.

    Don't really have any weak points yet. Fine off the ground and I don't really have any problem locking out. My best pull is 352lb so it's probably not at the point where im gonna have a weak point or anything. Maybe my cores a bit weak, I pull a lot more with a belt then without.

    Ok fellas, I think I'm going to embrace a recent change and give myself over to one of the internet routines for a tryout. Which one would you recommend for me? I'm looking to gain strength and just a bit more size. Long workouts are no problem and I'm at the gym most days.

    Just choose one of the 5/3/1 templates unless you are a novice.
    Novices are served by a basic linear progression like SS or the Greyskull linear progression (basicaly SS with autoregulation, programmed deloads and one less squat day).

    Thanks

    It's the routine I am using, quite like it though it is the first and only I have done.

    Feels weird, didn't go to the gym for the first Sunday night since about 1month ago.

    How would that be 'deadlift specific'? High pulls are done primarily to drill the 2nd pull in the O's. And since you pull sumo anyways, the bar positioning would be entirely different. If you're not struggling anywhere yet, just pull off the floor.


    (assume you're talking about clean high pulls)

    went 130kgx7 on the deadlift today on 3+ week. Should have quite a few cycles of 5/3/1 before I'm not able to preform the requisite number of reps on the last set.

    Yeah I meant clean high pulls, just thought it might be a bit more deadlift specific since its a pull off the ground. Did over head squats today for assistance, not at all deadlift specific, but it makes my shoulders feel good and I suppose it works the core pretty hard.
