    Agree that this doesn't look like sumo. When I lift sumo, my heels are each about 6-8 inches wider than the outsides of my hands in the bottom position. Other poster is also correct that your spine...

    Bumping--I'm considering PPL, and also upper/lower (adding an extra day). I'm at the point where I need a double progression, hence the rep ranges rather than rep counts. I also need to be able to...

    Above suggestions re bridges/thrusts are good. For a girl, they have those machines to do glute kickbacks. Technically speaking though, those will hit hams a little bit, and the top variety...

    Don't press after the clean? If you're just power cleaning, I fail to see how the shoulders are working at all, unless you're including upper trap fibers in your definition of shoulders.

    If you're doing movements like DLs, RDLs, back extensions and GMs, you're going to hit all of those muscle groups to some degree. How much each gets hit depends primarily on three factors:

    Sounds like you're a rank noob, so much of the quoted advice is good, but I would keep it a lot simpler. If your gym has a "back extension" or "hyperextension" bench, start with those doing sets of...

    Next time, write better English. From what I gathered:

    Week 1: 2 sets of 5
    Week 2: 1 set of 6, 1 set of 5
    Week 3: 2 sets of 6

    If that's correct, then yes, it is a form of progressive...

    Two things:

    1) since you're stats indicate your still in the noob-gains phase of lifting, consider dropping the reps done on squats, which will allow you to add weight to the bar faster.
