550 Deadlift by May 2019 - Idontbrag's Training & General Fitness Log


#381

Most people OHP with some degree of leaning back so yes it hits the upper chest decent. If upper chest is your priority incline bench variations probably better though


#382

Definitely go for that 225 OHP.
It’s gonna be hard work, OHP really is a difficult lift for many… including me.
Put in some incline presses as well for assistance.

Thanks guys. I think I’ll stick to the incline bench for now and evaluate the results once I hit 225. In the end I think I’ll get plenty of delt work with the incline press and dips combined. I’m thinking of doing something along these lines:

Wednesday
Rows 4x8
Incline press 4x8
Facepulls 4x8
Lateral raises 4x10
Bicep Curls 4x8

Friday or Saturday
Deadlift 5x5

Sunday
Incline press 5x5 (ramping up to a high effort working set)
Pullups (pyramid sets)
Dips (pyramid sets)
Lateral raise 4x10 (or to failure)
Rear delt raise 4x8 (or to failure)

Really only going to be tracking the weights for the deadlift and the incline press. As long as I can get a decent amount of fatigue from the accessory work that should be solid already.
