    Overhead press seems to be stalling out a bit, particularly near the top portion of the lift. Been doing push presses, dumb bell row, bar bell raises and overhead dumb bell press as assistance. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Neck is also incredibly sore today, would not have expected that post overhead press.

    which one you're doing? I've seen two methods.

    Also some dude asked me if I was competing in OL today as I was doing power cleans with something silly like 80kg. It kinda made me lol, knowing that competitive lifters in my class basically muscle snatch what I clean with ease.

    Depending on how my wrists/shoulders/triceps feel, I'll do them the original JM way or Tate's variation with a little less elbow drop

    This one. Works great, you don't need the leather one. I think the leather one would have been way more uncomfortable.

    dude there's always some guy that is going to be better than you, I've just come to accept that. Now, that doesn't mean you can't be stronger than the top woman lifters :p

    Just finished a 'split' workout focusing on back, which is different to my normal squats, bench deads etc. Felt really good and seemed to hit the muscles well. I am in hotel gym so would have done proper deadlifts but for lack of weight so i just went down to shin level with the bar, which i saw on one of those dorian yates videos as a good back exercise.

    4 x 8 deadlift/RDL?
    3 x 8 DB rows
    3 x 8 lat pull down
    3 x 6 pull up (assisted)
    3 x 10 cable curls

    Lats were pumped and looked a lot bigger afterwards, which doesnt usually happen. I guess training like this all the time isnt best for someone still skinny, but i enjoyed it.

    Tips on not curving back in DL? I used to not have problems but as I've increased weight I seem not be able to keep my abs tight and my back straight when I go up. I'm thinking I might go down in weight 5-10kg.

    There is a difference between these two movements, just so you know. And there's nothing wrong with db rows, those and weighted pullups will keep your upper back in check.


    Spinal erectors not strong enough? Other than obvious technique errors or lack of leg strength idk what else is there that'd cause this. And since you were lifting fine with lighter weights it's obviously not a mobility thing either.

    Strengthen your lower back with something like good mornings. I think its good to go quite heavy on them.

    Dorian Yates teachers the deadlift so it kind of looks like a RDL. He doesn't put it on the floor between reps, just kind of lowers it to his knees.
