My Workout

I’ve decided to begin posting my workouts to allow some of the more experienced westsiders to give some constructive critiques…

I currently weigh about 180 and am going to compete in March after a 1.5 year hiatus due to shoulder surgery…
I currently workout…one day on one off (this split has proven to work well)

Deadoc- Green bands on dynamic bench day? Are these minis or the green average band used for squating?? your work outs look good… I wouldnt like pulling out of a medium sumo stance like that because I dont like to fuck with my pulling technique at all, it took me a while to perfect my form, so when I pull off boxes i make sure I can use my competetion stance. You got a really good basic understanding of the program though. Let me know about these bands because if you are using a green average band that is way way way to much tension.
Keep up the hard work…Big Martin
