For the Bench:
More assistances exercises. Went back through you thread and I see some CGB but seemed pretty far apart. More direct front delt work.
Deadlift: With your good mornings and lower back numbers outs it should be flying up. Having said that, how’s you’re technique? Are you relying too much on your back and not enough initial leg drive?
If your training to get strong don’t do so many reps getting up to your heavy numbers. Warm up so the heavier weights aren’t a shock and then hit low reps at high weights.
You’re normal workout is outstanding. But you’re talking about specific lifts here. You have to direct your efforts at those lifts to get stronger in them. Make sure you’re not worn out on the days you work your big lifts.
I know you’ve got the strength. If your goal is to make these lifts direct your energy towards that.
If I have said anything that contridicts Mr Thib’s article, refer to my first paragraph. You will get your goals. I have no doubt in that.
Thanks hel320! I figure I’ve been spending a lot of time on bigger movements recently. Haven’t done much assistance work on bench, I’ll do that. I’ve always wondered about my warmups. Don’t really know what is an adequate amount of work for warming up.
The new program I’m starting, I won’t do any max lifting for several weeks, and more assisiatnce work. After loosing a lot of strength working an off shift, and not having figured out how to lift and work midnights, I’ve pushed myself to try to get back where I was. Now I need to get smart to get to the next level.
