    an someone show me a proper way of doing GHR without the machine? this is the only exercise i have left out (substituted with this other lower back exercise that has your body lifted at angle standing straight and you bend down). I may or may not try this today: [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    Also that's doubly as impressive, as I'm about your weight too and my snatch is a good 20kg lower. I guess it's just that once I get the technique I'll get the weights too.

    GHRs fucked with my knees more than anything else, but then again I never got to the point where I was able to do even a natural rep.

    I have discovered leg drive and arching my back in the bench press, moved much more weight much more easily then I did with normal bench press. Hopefully soon my bench press will catch up with my other lifts and be more then half of my deadlift. Also is there any better way to add weight to chin ups then chaining a plate onto your belt? I did 15kgx3, but the plate kept swinging back and forth hitting me in the balls.

    Are you using a dip/chin belt or just a regular belt? A proper belt for chins/dips goes down the front of your hips and the attachment point for the chain is below your groin.

    Normal belt with just a plate chained onto it. A longer chain would probably help.

    KB stuff isn't aggravating my back, which is good to know. Started the RKC rite of passage program. Today's my "variety" day which i'm devoted to swole-ing out.

    I'm going to see how my shoulders/triceps handle non-machine bench presses and if my forearms can deal with DB rows. Anything else you guys think i should add to the mix that snatches/swings/pullups/C+P aren't hitting? I might just do some HIIT on the elliptical to get that sweet sweet VO2 Maxness.

    What to do on off days? I was thinking of just adding 30-45 min eliptical or stationary bike to T, Th.

    I like this answer, TrH. Just finished 9 eggs in burrito form and barely feel satisfied. I love eggs.

    I should note I'm not training for competitions, but moreso to get in shape. Hence why I was thinking of some cardio also.
