  14. Looks good in here, your lockout may be shakey on the sumos bc of foot placement and the pressure on the hips not being able to fire right. I wouldnt max on db press either. In the westside barbell book of methods they use db presses for RE work inplace of ME work. Otherwise maybe do sets of 5.

    your probably right my hips have always been my weakness take forever to stretch them to be able to squat so im sure that the issue im trying my best to keep them loose and strengthen them. As far as Db press i know westside doesnt reccomend them too a max i use them for RE day, and sometimes instead of deloads ill do a 3-5 rep db max, got greedy and went for 135s last time worlds of difference 20 lbs on Dumbells make
