If anything, I got weaker. I’ve been training with a bodybuilding routine for about a year and a half and the past 8 weeks I tried this program.
My first 4 weeks my ME upperbody lift were dips. I went from being able to dip 35lb 1 time, to 70lb 1 time, I did this for 4 weeks and then I deloaded and did Flat Barbell Bench as a new ME excersise. I though I would be able to bench more considering my dip numbers shot up, but no. I work up to 215 on a good ME lift and 210 on avarage. This has been the past 4 weeks and not a single pound of improvement.
My squat has stayed the same pretty much. I did box squats the first 4 weeks and regular ATG squats the last 4, and I’ve stayed at 360 the entire time. When I go heavier my form goes terrible. So I thought, hey maybe my hamstrings are just weak as hell since I bend my back half way up when I try 365. So switched up SLDL to good mornings and my good mornings have improved aton but nothing in squat.
Here is a sample of my training log becuase maybe I’m not doing this right
