  1. Strong benching. I've seen a couple people recently list chin-ups as their bench WU.

    Thanks RJ. I also do them for a warmup on overhead press days. I think they're a great way to warmup quickly and get the upper body in particular ready to work.

    Yo RJ. That's why I like box squats; you can move a *lot* of weight, without killing yourself. Plus I go sumo, which makes it easier since the ROM is shorter.

  10. Slaying that iron. Nice work! Question: I just started doing rack pulls, at what position is the bar in relation to your knee? Just above or middle of the knee? Mine was about 2 inches above the knee.
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    Hi kenpo, thanks man. I guess whatever height whatever works best for is good. I use the safety bars in a power rack, on the lowest holes. It ends up being just a bit below the knee.

    I still haven't tried sumo anything. Maybe I'll play with it on a deload week.

    I agree here Mark. Try and get the bar just below the knee. My gyms racks don't go that low, so I have to use plates.

    Hey RJ. If you haven't tried sumo before my advice is to take it slow to start with. When I first tried sumo for deads I pulled a hamstring muscle right away, which sucked. I stuck to it and it paid off though, my deads work a lot better with sumo and it's just the way to go for box squats IMO.

    Really? That's awesome, but odd. Lol. I don't see many people do them at all.

    Taking your lead on the Fronts. Doing them after deads today.
