And I'm very happy with that 45 pound, but I guess my vision has become blurry due to the fact that I'm stalling at the moment.
I got 100kg for 5 on close grips today, so that is more that 95% of my regular bench at the moment. I think that might be because I've been grinding regular bench since August with only 2 deloads and close grip for 3 weeks now.
Checked out Jim's book, he has great stuff on EliteFTS and youtube. Great advise from a guy that is strong as hell. I saw the "Boring but Big" template in his book and immediately thought I got to try this one! Very simple and utilizes the 5/3/1 wave form that I've never done before, but the warm ups leading to the top sets are 5x5 like so I already know how to do those so that I don't wear my self out for the top sets.
Did and still do foam rolling, also saw a physical therapist and had lay off all lower body work for 3 weeks to get my back well enough for even military presses and bench. So I'm not going to risk it again this year now that I'm working lower body again. Will how ever try 5x5 again next spring when I have more time for recovery on my hands.
Thanks for the greats tips on Jim's book and smacking me for not realizing that I have made great progress and stalling for a few weeks isn't a surprise.
