    It's a benefit, the harder it is to get to the bar, the more you load the suit. Load it as much as possible, literally pull yourself to the bar and get tight as you can.

    Thanks, man. Put some bands around your thighs while you sumo pull light (warmup sets, speed work). You'll pattern so much better.

    So just pause a tick at the bottom to get the slack out and then go?

    Pulling yourelf to the bar, setting the hips as low as possible, and pulling your shoulders back should remove the slack. Then exert your power. It's just that little bit of bar bend that will rip you out of posture if you don't remove it first when it's heavy.

    You're absolutely right. That's precisely what happens.

    Dude, I'm really interested in your reasoning for your suggestion of dropping my opener a little, and going a little heavier on my second.

    I was thinking to do it to avoid the stigma behind that number. Open at 335 and take your second at 365 or so.

    I can do one of those things-COD. I'm too fat & old to drink beer all day, still got 4 kids at home and a wife that won't kick me out yet.

    You know me guys, always got it rough. Took it pretty easy on the body this weekend, did some golfing, fixing up boats. I'm going to get some work in today if I don't have to work late. Just some easy lower body, heavy emphasis on mobility, keep the blood flowing. My weight is down to 217, so potentially going 198 in June. That remains to be seen, but be on the lookout for a bodybuilding lower body day today along with some rows.

    I would say bodybuilding is like potion-making. You have to bring together mass quantities of the right ingredients. And then shoot them into your ass.

    5/7 RE Upper

    Bench
    225x12x3

    Band Lat Pull/Facepull
    Greenx15x4/50x15x4

    Lateral Raises (strict)
    25x12x3

    Hang Clean Complex (Triple Ext.x3, High Pullx3, Cleanx3, last one 3s paused front squat)
    Up to 185

    BB Curl
    Barx120, 100 in 4 sets, then 10x2

    I went off of the WS4SB rep upper template, adding in some hang clean practice as my brother guns for the school record board with a 255. He hasn't been cleaning, so we're crash coursing the clean. WS4SB has done wonders for him. Added about 120lbs to his total.

    High reps are such a bitch. Good session, nothing feels bad, did some front squats in the clean complexes and some 45lb hip snatches to overhead squats. Everything is moving pretty decent.

    That's what my program currently is loosely based on. A little more organic to WS but more akin to WS4SB.

    What's the injury?

    If it's a strain or muscle pull, don't do any heat, just ice/NSAIDs/compression.

    I think it is a strain/pull. My butt shot up high and I tried to good morning the weight up. Not something entirely out of the ordinary, but this time it bit me.

    Location of pain? Sharp, dull? Descending or one spot?

    I think it is a strain/pull. My butt shot up high and I tried to good morning the weight up. Not something entirely out of the ordinary, but this time it bit me.
    Rest it for a week and re-evaluate before making any decisions.

    Good Luck bro...

    There are few tweaks/injuries that I can sympathize more with than spinal.

    I wish I has been more cognizant of spine health & mobility 20 years ago.

    It's my lowest thoracic vertebrae area, usually sharp pain, localized to one spot. It's improved pretty rapidly these past few days. Not enough to be ready for tomorrow, but possibly I'll be good enough to make an effort on the 25th.
