    Looking real strong dude. When did you switch to a westside routine? I think I'm years away from that still. I'm still training 5/3/1 (Periodization bible assistance).

    Question on your BB shrugs. Are you doing explosive power shrugs, like clean pulls? Or just normal shrugs with BB in front, w pause at the top? I want to add shrugs back into my routine as assistance, but was just thinking of behind the back BB shrugs to build up the traps more and spinal erectors.

    Also, I'm always looking for new ways to destroy my hams. How are you doing those single leg stability ball ham curl? I'm guessing it's with a large stability ball not the cut-off bosu right?

    I did 5/3/1 for a year switching it around with 3/5/1 and the such. Using alt deads with deficits and sometimes squating in a suit. But honestly I was getting bored. And I train bc I love it so I got the westside book of methods and me and my training partner switched over. Ive learned a lot from both programs. I find westside a lot of fun.And I did them normal, BB in front with a slight lean so I could squeeze them where they would be when I dead lift as it hits the back of my traps, not the top. I had trouble with a rounded upper back when I pulled. Also its on a large bosu ball, the largest at the gym. There was an article on here about hamstring work and I saw that. Its honestly as hard as GHRs to me, well the single legged variation. You put your feet on the ball, lock your hip up, which uses urs glutes and leg curl while you dont let your hips fall. VERY hard.

    I haven't seen or heard of them done on a bosu before, on the large stability (yoga) balls yes though.
    This is a bosu ball below, are you sure this is what you mean? If so, the ball doesn't roll, so I'm not sure how the curl would work on it.

    About a month ago. Had to do some actual hypertrophy training and rehab since I ran into a rash of injuries. It felt really, really weird to do some TUT and high volume stuff instead of 5/3/1 or conjugate training.

    Best of luck! Looking forward to watching the vids.

    I've got an injury now too that I've been trying to deal with. Lower left trap, teres major and a couple spots around the shoulder blade. Lifting 5/3/1 but now I'm all messed up and not sure what to do. Maybe a Smolov squat cycle till my mid back is healed?

    Yep but looking for your advice too, but I'll PM him as well. I definitely can't deadlift right now, or row, so I'm thinking Smolov base cycle since I need to work on my squat anyhow. Seeing a chiro today for some ART treatment. I highly recommend A.R.T specialists for sports injuries.

    You foam roll it right?

    thats a pretty needed area for all the powerlifts. Id do the smolve cycle if it doesnt make it worse. Idk how squats or bench feel on it.

    thats a pretty needed area for all the powerlifts. Id do the smolve cycle if it doesnt make it worse. Idk how squats or bench feel on it.
    Foam roll, lacross ball, bands, etc... yup I do normal mobility stuff for it on a regular basis (even before the injury). The A.R.T treatment is the best though, to remove old scar tissue to help recover and prevent the old injury from re-occuring.

    Well Ill get pics and vids up as soon as I finally wake up haha.
    Anyways got first place in the junior 220s since there was no one else in it lol. Walked in at 201, coulda competed 198 but decieded to just use my first meet as a learning experience.
    Final lifts were
    squat-476
    bench-275
    deadlift-501

    That squat was a big PR, but I use a high arch and leg drive on the bench. Not use to benching after squating so it threw me alot. Also my pull was fast, went for 530 since thats what my partner picked. But my chest and traps cramped so I had to dump it.

    notes: Well today was a planned recovery day with no ME lift. But as we were warming up a fellow powerlifter asked us about the meet. We talked for min and said lets go do suspended goodmornings. Now my lower back was tight from the meet but we went. After I missed 275 twice. The guy "much bigger, older, and stronger then I" looked at me and said are you serious? This is your bench at the meet, you know the meet you sucked at. Now get mad and lift it. So I collected my thoughts and got under the bar, and pushed with everything I had. The bar wasnt moving for what felt like forever until finally it budged, and boom locked it out. He had me do it two more times each time it got faster. I learned eveything is in our mind and that is what holds us back. Great session.

    Good stuff! Can't complain about first place hehe. Sucks that they made you bench right after squatting, normally there'd be a long wait. Sounds like it was good experience man. Keep it up.

    Ok ill be updating here more guys, sorry about that.
    Also Im so lazy, ill get the pics/vids up on wed if i can figure it out, im also computer dumb so thats why i usually put this stuff off ahah.

    Update: Im injured right now. I was doing speed squats and went to rack and came in crooked. Well my pinky got pinched between the bar and the pins and the skin on the corner was ripped back. It was deep and didnt start bleeding right away. Got a lil sick from it, iced it, went to urgent care to make sure it wasnt to bad. It been wrapped and stuff for a few days now. It sucks but I can make do without it for now. I did finish the session tho haha. My main issue which I need advice on right now is, well my forearm tendons. Last monday I did rope crunches and the weight with rope my bis and forearms were all jammed in a contracted position and it hurt when I finished. Didnt think much of it until the last few sessions where my lower bicep and the tendons around it keep flaring up to the point I can barley grab a bottle of water with one hand. It doesnt hurt a couple hrs after the session or the next day but whenever I do presses or squats when trying to pull the bar down it flares up REALLLY bar. Its been about a week now. Im curious what this could be? Regardless I wont be doing me work for a lil as im gonna avoid anything that flares it up and just work on my base with assistence work for now until I get this taken care of.

    Sucks to be injured. I'm in the same boat right now. Do you use lacrosse balls at all, on your forearms, etc? It helped a lot when I jammed mine up last summer. I roll it around with the opposite hand, and also press against the wall with it and roll.

    I did something like that a couple months ago; mashed a finger when I got distracted while racking a dumbbell. It was a pretty heavy dumbbell, like 120 lb or something. The finger was skinned a bit and broke but not too bad. I used to wear a ring on that finger, never again though. It did mess up my grip strength on that hand for a few weeks. You may want to avoid the rope handles in particular for a while.
