    doing squats with only the bar is the most maddeningly frustrating thing ever. i absolutely cannot warm up with only the bar; 95 is about as low as i can go without falling all over the place.

    Actually no, but he was just making the point that often times warm ups are longer than they need to be for no reason.

    Moved down to 3 x 5. Tried my first set at 100lbs but could only got 4 done. Went down to 95lbs and did 5 and then only 4. Not a good morning. I could tell when I warmed up at 75lbs that I was in trouble. Nothing worse than knowing just based on your warm-ups that the working set is going to suck. Any thoughts on good assistance for OHP? Have been doing dumbbell shoulder press, face pulls and push presses. Thinking about working in lateral raises.....

    I did Layne Nortons PHAT today. I feel like i have betrayed the style forum for doing a hypertrophy program and not SS, SL, 5/3/1, SPBR or WS4SB. Felt really good though. Only 1 minute long breaks, dat der pump.

    DB shoulder press should help as well as push presses, doubt lateral raises will do much. OHP is pretty front delt heavy.

    I can't seem to nail down a good approximation, and I know it varies amongst meats, but does anyone have a roundabout figure for # oz of raw meat = # oz cooked meat? E.g., 1 lb raw chicken thighs = 12 oz cooked chicken thighs. Is there a conversion table or some shit?

    5/3/1 warmup (which I use when lifting heavy) is
    45%1RMx5
    50%1RMx5
    55%1RMx3

    could just be an off day. even if you just got 100x4, stick with it and try to tack on an extra rep each week. i hate the shitty warmup feeling :( i wouldnt worry too much about assistance work for it
    buy a digital food scale, costs like 15 bux

    That warm up seems like a complete waste of energy if I did that. But if it works for you, keep plugging away.

    Already have one. I weigh everything. I'm just looking for a calculation to work out my diet plan on paper. There's got to be something simple I can use.

    Push presses are really not the greatest assistance to the strict press. I find they have much more carryover to the jerk than the OHP.

    Also doing strictly barbell work this wk, seems like the right move.

    Yeah thinking about it your right. Most people are weak at he bottom of the press, push press just lets you overload the top. I don't think there are many effective accessory movements for the press.
