I know what you're saying and I guess that's what I intended to say. So I have been doing them right. Still kills my lower back regardless.Originally Posted by ryansm
Yeah I asked a couple of my competitive pl buddies at the gym yesterday they both do them at around 405 lbs. I will be starting them next week.
Dorian Yates posted this back workout in FLEX this month... what do you think?
Close grip pulldowns 2 sets
Chins 2 sets
Barbell/t-bar Rows 2 sets
seated pully rows 2 sets
hypers 2-3 sets
He also does 1-2 sets of warmups before each lift.
Well, I know that the heaviest I've gone for GMs was 495x3 on my ME day, it was a bit rough, but I got all three. I can't really say how much the DL was though because I was training westside style so regular DLs weren't part of the program, but I would wager my DL would be anywhere from 450-475, but that's just a guess on my part. Come monday when school starts and I get back to a full service gym, I'll probably test my numbers on the big three and see where I'm at.Originally Posted by max-rot98
Cool man thanks. Yeah I will be starting them monday so I'll know by then but post your numbers anyway and how much you think GM's helped your dl.Originally Posted by UHCougar05
i'm wagering your deadlift is stronger than that. if not now, it will climb fast. that's a crazy GM.Originally Posted by UHCougar05
Sound good but I like to do more than two sets per exercise. So I would cut back an exercise or would add another and do what beelz does 3 one week and 3 the next. Just something about doing two sets of each exercise I don't like JMOOriginally Posted by davisville64
I hope so. That was done in either march or april, then I got so busy with school and work that my gym time took a hit. I hope to work up to that again, but I plan to add more deadlifts into my workouts when school starts. Hopefully I maintained at least a portion of my strength, but I'll see where I'm at monday.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
