    Hyper lower
    Speed focused dynamic squats 6x225 for 3
    Front squats 3x225 for 6
    Single-leg press 4pps 8,5
    BFR leg ext. single-leg 95lb cluster

    Rdl 335 for 10,8,7
    Single leg hamstring curl 95lb 12,12
    BFR outer abductor 230lb cluster

    Pushed calves and Abs to tomorrow due to time constraints. Rdl's are becoming absolutely brutal. The weight feels lighter but as I get heavier (my own weight that is) the endurance aspect of 8-12 rep deads becomes the challenge.
    Tried new form with my front squats today. Typically I use a wide stance and California grip, today I did narrow stance with no-arm grip (arms straight out superman style). Feel much stronger in the hole with the narrow stance and was able to leave a couple reps in the tank.Next week I'll either go up to 235 or shoot for 3x 7+reps (which would be a pr).
    At this point essentially every improvement is a pr.

    Hyper back and shoulders
    cable v-rows 3x 210lb for 12
    Rear delt db rows 85's 10,90's 8
    Lat pull down 270 for 4,4
    Rear Delt machine 270 11,10

    Db shoulder press(ct) 85 7,4*
    *Seriously strained my right trap during the second set, almost though I tore my trap right off my neck.

    I stopped lifting for a few minutes then finished off with
    BFR rope cable curls 50lb
    Db wrist curls to finger tips 3x45lb
    Then some calve and abs that I didn't do yesterday.

    I've strained my trap in the past but this time seems pretty bad. Not sure if it's because I switched up the back movements or even that the RDL's from yesterday impair today's recovery too much. Can't really turn my neck, feels pretty jacked up.
    Hopefully ice/tiger balm/aspirin and 10hours of sleep will help.

    Cardio
    Hiit on elliptical
    5min warm up
    5x 30second sprint With 2 to 3 minutes miis between
    5 min cool down

    20minutes of foam roller and medicine ball

    Slept 11 hours last night, woke up with my neck stiff as a board... but as the day went on it loosened up a ton and I'm already feeling back to normal.
    I'm sure part of the reason I pulled the trap was due to the new "constant tension" form I've been using on shoulder press. I had developed a minor chest strain that I talked about earlier, which I am now also believing may in part be due to that new style. So... I'm probably going to avoid constant tension on pressing movements.

    Weight has actually gone down a little, hovering around 191.5-192.5. Time to get more aggressive with my macros.

    Power upper

    Incline bench 3x 205 for 3
    Dips bw+95lb for 7,6

    BB overhand rows 3x 275 for 5 (went light because of the trap still recovering)
    Pull ups med-grip bw+90lb for 3, bw+ 70lb for 8
    Straight arm pull downs 2x 35kg for 15

    BB shoulder press 155 for 4,3 (went light because of trap)

    Standing bicep curls (CT) 55 for 7,6,6
    BFR ez-bar curl 70lb 30-15-15-15
    DB overhead single-arm tricep ext. 55 4,4,4
    DB standing arm-side wrist curls 2x65lb for 20+ reps

    Next week I expect to hit some really good numbers, went all little lighter overall due to the minor injury I'm recovering from. 90lb was the most I've ever attempted on pulls, didn't feel too bad! Exams are finally over so I can dedicate more time to making sure I can rest adequately between sets on power days.
    I other news I have been considering getting a personal training certification so I can do some personal training on the side (a lot of people have approached me after seeing my results over the last two years). After some research I'm strongly considering the NASM, but if anyone has any thoughts or other recommendations I'd be very interested in hearing them.

    Power Lower

    Squats
    135 for 5
    185 for 5
    225 for 5
    255 for 5
    285 for 5 (video)
    315 for 5 (PR)
    325 for 3 (PR) Still had more in the tank too

    For anyone that has been reading my numbers closely, it seems that my squat is loving this ramp up style training. 30lb up in the last month, and 50+ lb since the start of this log.

    Incline hack squat 3pps 8,8
    Cable pull throughs 2x 92.5lb for 15
    BFR hamstring seated curl 170lb 30-15-15-15
    Standing calve raises 3x 400 (neutral stance) for 15, 2x 320 (toe-in stance) 12
    Hanging ab raises 4x 10lb for 8-12

    Skipped pulls today because of the trap, but will do RDL's on monday.

    I recorded some squats today but I ran out of memory on my 325 set unknowingly, here was my 285 set for 5. Feel free to critique.




    Had some pretty good eats today since my macros are so high 675c/230p/70f :

    Breakfast:
    2servings of oats, half cup of mixed organic jelly and berries, 2 scoops of chocolate whey, topped with special K and yogurt bites and a large bag of pop chips (not pictured)


    Post-workout meal:
    One large, thin crust pizza topped with marinara sauce and cheese, shredded chicken, chipotle suace, sauteed onions, peppers, cilantro and pineapple


    Still have two more meals to go, will post if I make anything legit.

    Thanks man, I didn't feel like the form was too great though. I think that conventional doesn't really fit my body shape very well, so hopefully sumo will be the key.

    Hyper Lower

    speed squats 6x 236 for 3
    front squats 225 - attempted, felt sick on the 1st set, 3rd rep, stopped
    single-leg leg press 4pps for 10,8,6 (extra set to make up)
    BFR leg ext. 170lb 30-15-15-15
    RDL 335 for 10,8 - stopped before my 3rd set because I was feeling super dizzy
    GHR bw for 6,6,4 (Extra set to make up)
    Seated calve raises 3pps for 15,15
    BFR toe-in clave raises 320lb for 20(+10 neutral stance) - 15-15-12
    BFR inner abductors 230 30-15-15-15


    Have some sort of ear/cold going on. First it was ear ringing for the last day and then vertigo last night to the point where I couldn't stand and had to take some dramamine. Did the todays workout regardless, still got a few extra reps on leg press but couldn't do front squats and almost passed out after my 2nd set of RDL. Refused to go down in weight or reps though.
    I WILL be better tomorrow.

    Hyper back/shoulders

    3x smith rows from dead position to top with 1 second hold, 225lb for 12 (insane MMC)
    3x underhand rows 225 for 12
    2x db rear rows from dead 90 for 8
    3x straight arm pull down 200lb for 15

    barbell shoulder press wave week 2, 135 for 3, 145 for 3, 155 for 4 (goal was over 3)
    heavy lateral raises (arms bent)2x 50lb's for 9
    strict seated CT lateral raise 2x 30's for 9
    Db shrugs (couldn't use the rack so did these for a change) 3x 100's for 20 reps (with 1-3 second hold on top of each rep)

    3x Reverse curls 90lb about 10-12 reps
    wrist curls 55lb (single hand) 16,15,12,8

    more a "bro" style workout, but I actually had a great MMC the whole time and felt like I really targeted my lats well. As much as I hate to admit it the smith machine rows really work for me.

    Rope crunch ramp up set (all sets for 15 reps) 72.5lb up to 97.5 (stack) - also need a way to increase the weight on these
    Hanging ab raises bw for 8 then 2x 10lb in feet for 6

    Neutral stance calve raises 2x 400 for 20, 2x 340 for 15

    I may not switch over to sumo after all. The big problem I'm having with conventional stance is that my upper back seems to always be rounded and that because of the length of my legs in proportion to my torso I essentially SLDL the weight (and not really in a straight line either). I thought sumo might fix this but I found that unless I go super wide with my stance,which I don't really like because I worry one day I'll slip a little and crush my foot, it is more or less the same issue but with less pulling power.
    I am now considering that instead of moving to sumo, I should begin doing rack pulls on one of my hyper days (probably back/shoulder) to help with my upper back posture on conventional.

    Upper back rounding on deadlifts isn't necessarily bad. If you look at some of the best powerlifters in the world they round their upperbacks. Of course those are during 1RM attempts, but still.

    Yeah that's what for the most part I've heard from others. I still think it's indicative that there is a weakness seeing how I can DL upwards of 450+ right now but can not maintain a straight upper back on anything north of 400 (and more like 350 on sumo). Also during my contest prep early this year, I strained a segment of my lower back doing speed deadlifts (or maybe speed rows, not sure) going perhaps a little "too fast" and ever since my lower back has good days and bad days.
    I did see a specialist for it and had mri/xray/cat scan done- everything is A-okay but even still after power lower day's I have inflammation.
    I'm not sure that changing my form will help too much (since squats also bother me from time to time and my form is pretty solid there) but I feel like if I can't find a way to make dl's work better for me I may be forced to stop doing them.

    Hyper lower

    3x incline hack squats 3pps for 8
    2x Single Leg leg press 4pps for 8
    BFR cluster of Leg ext. 170lb 30-15-15-20

    3x GHR for 6
    3x single leg curl 100lb for 15
    BFR cluster of inner abductor 230lb for 30-15-15-15

    BFR cluster of toe-in calve raises 300 30-15-15-15

    Not a lot of time today so I did a very quick hyper workout then I typically do. Actually became pretty tough since my rest periods were so short. I did GHR's instead of RDL's because tomorrow I will do rack pulls.

    I work out four times a week and have done it since June. I want to try the PHAT program you are using. However, I only want to work out four times a week as I'm currently doing. What should I do? Thanks!
