    You’re probably thinking stronger = a better 1RM in whatever exercise. That isn’t the way to look at it. If you took what you lifted last week and used more weight for the same reps, or did more reps...

    I’d treat box jumps as either 1) prehab (or GPP, if you prefer that term) or 2) a way to get some explosive lower body volume work in since by nature box jumps are concentric only and shouldn’t wreak...

    Then do something to hammer the medial and lateral heads like rope pulldowns. Use a long rope or 2...

    Wide stance anything is just gonna be more adductor, and less range of motion.

    A good tool in the tool box but not so sure about longevity vs other squat patterns.

    Big agree on dropping seated calf raises. I can’t imagine a greater waste of time in the gym.

    Do them standing, or one legged with bodyweight, or on a leg press.

    If you’re gonna run any kind of specialization program, other lifts will have to take a back seat to whatever you’re trying to bring up.

    Benching 3x a week is more than enough...

    I found that incline flys are better than any press for the upper chest, an area I kinda lag in myself. A lot less stress on the joints too if that is a concern.

    Just don’t lower them super far...
