Have you established a 1rm for your lifts? Looks like you could go a bit heavier w your bench.
09-03-2013, 09:36 PM
I'll try to post some vids.
My bench used to be higher but a while back cut too deep into my calories went down to 2100 a day and all my lifts tanked bad so i was forced to reset my lifts

I belive I read it somewhere in jim's book the he did it to help with bar travel and less pressure on the shoulder
Not really confident in my form on any of my lifts thought it mite help

I was in the same boat as you once, some days I'd bench my max, other days I'd be crushed by 100lbs less, depending on the shoulder. Once I learned how to bench, it fixed itself.

In for support.
Ripptoe had some great advice for bench in the latest addition of starting strength. This has always been my area of weakness as well. Biggest thing for me was focusing my eyes on the ceiling rather than watching the bar, this naturally fixed my bar path. It was the one exercise that had to watch the bar for some reason lol.

Why are you doing so many exercises if you are doing wendler 5 3 1? What assistance program are you doing?
09-04-2013, 01:32 AM
He actually states in his newest book, as well as a few articles to hit 3-4 assistance exercises and then hit bis/tris/Facepulls or whatever, something non taxing.

This (if I read it right) should be straight out of the second edition based on the periodization bible and and a little more volume per the book 5-3-1 and beyond
Late night responds thanks to my new 5 day old baby daughter lol

Picked up a foam roller today at dick sporting goods came home looked up some exercises for it and gave it a shot.
Dont think it was a good idea with a good case of doms in my legs hurt like hell lol but worked through it and I hope it helps. Read up on the times to use and how so we'll see how it goes
Tomorrow is deads looking forward to it
09-04-2013, 11:41 PM
That's when you should be using it, when you're sore. It's not supossed to feel good lol When it doesn't hurt, that means you've released that tissue.
DeFranco Agile 8 and Limber 11, YouTube it, it'll give you some other ideas as well
Pull big tomorrow!
09-04-2013, 11:44 PM
Thanks ive been reading your logs and see thats what u have been doing going to check it out
What are them pull aparts about?
09-04-2013, 11:53 PM
Good for rear delt/shoulder health. Also check out "so you think you can bench" on YouTube. Dave Tate discusses using them as an aid to learn how to "spread the bar"
09-05-2013, 10:52 PM
Foam rolling legs, feel like everyone was like what the hell is that guy doing very rarely do I see someone stretch let alone roll

Legs are still very sore from Monday but pulled through it. Form rolling hurt like hell again did 5 to 10 rolls per side not sure if im working the spots quite right going to roll more tonight.

What's this new(er) version of 5/3/1?

There is a lot but im not an advanced enough lifter to try most of it going to keep it simple for now. I dont regret buying it

No gym today did some accidental intermittent fasting this morning by sleeping till noon
Form rolling and stretching today
Is my doms lasting so long in my legs a sign of poor recovery or just the fact I took a week off?
Revising my goals, now its to just keep losing my stomach\inchs not so much as weight
