    I did rack pulls to realy get use to squeezeing my glutes and getting my shoulders behind the bar to lockout the lift. ALso learned to keep my tricep flexed and how to pull the flex out of the bar.

  19. nice pulling, are you still using wendlers program.

  20. im using westside now, i should prolly change the thread title but i used 5/3/1 when i started this thread and i dont wanna keep making new ones

  21. DE Lower body

    Speed squats
    195 x 3 x 8 sets
    these were fast enough but lower back got a tremendous pump but thats because of doing back work with max effort upper body days I got to stop that. Thats the one thing i want to change about my westside program

    Ab work

    Leg Press
    6 45's total for 3 x 20

    couple things after this workout idk why my lower back was sore im guessing its from heavy rows for back on DE day i might knock that out and do them with ME or DE lower body day. Also i want to do some bicep work because i still got some nice bi's dont wanna loose the peak im trying to figure out what day to add those in on, im thinking DE bench day. thats it for today wednesday im doing DE bench

  22. westside speed squats are usually done for doubles. YOu can definately get some bi work on DE bench day. That is when i do it.

    O **** it is triples for bench doubles for squat damn ok ill adjust that.

    what do you think if i take the 4 sets of upper lat work out on bench day and replace them with biceps and on DE lower body day id do upper back. so it would look like this

    Speed squats, Rack pulls, leg press DB or BB rows and then some hytrophy work? and instead of of the upper back

  24. DE bench press day on 3 hours of sleep that monster pump kept me going today.

    Speed Bench
    135+40 pounds chain 8 sets of 3, using 2 reg grip, 3 close and 2 wide

    3 singles on 210 with 40 lb chain. felt alot easier than last week.

    Shoulder Press
    215 x 8
    225 x 8
    225 x 4 not enough rest between sets and sstill need to work on shoulder endurance

    Weighted dips
    BW+70 3 sets 8 rep, 8 rep 7 rep
    didnt like this at all i thought it would be great for tricep speed lift but i gota look into some other tricep assistance for this.

    Face pulls
    3 x 15 on 65

    Tricep ez bar pulldown
    50 x 15
    75 x 15
    95 x 15
    perfect form every rep

    Barbell curls
    95 x 8
    not feeling iit after one set so did cable bicep curls and couple of those flex curls where u bring the cables in and did a double bi flex

    and that was it todays goal was speed bench couple heavy singles. Shoulder strength lift, tricep endurance and a pump for bis and tris to keep arm defintion so it was pretty good. im laying of upper back work and doing that on Lower body ME day because thats when i do deads.

  25. had to take thurs offf because a bad storm. which wasnt a good thing i hammered all my meals was ready to go had that mind set then storms were so bad couldnt drive.. friday i barely ate had to do a deadlift session here are the #s

    Deads
    135 x 8
    225 x 3
    315 x 1
    385 x 1
    445 missed, missed it at about shin length. formed seemed ok but i wasnt dialed in like i should have been to make sure i did everything right.

    Rack Pulls from bottom pin (closest to the ground)
    315 x 3
    405 x 1
    455 x 1

    did these because this was a struggling point and this works great for lowerback work IMO.

    Kroc Rows
    90s x 35 hit 25 in a row

    Pullups
    4 sets to hit 47 form was horrible.

    Lat Pulldowns isolated
    4 x f 15-20 reps just for a pump.

    damn good workout besides missing 445.. ill prolly try 445 again after doing rack pulls on speed squat day for lower back. if i miss it again next thurs, i will start doing platform pulls to get more ROM...

    sunday is ME bench going for 270 of a 2 board
