  • Sticky: If our grip is starting to fail before our lower...

    If our grip is starting to fail before our lower back on SLDL, what should we do to help with grip strength? My SLDL is not heavy enough that i'd even think about chalk/straps yet...I just have small...
  • Sticky: If I can only curl the 45 lb bar for 6-8 reps,...

    If I can only curl the 45 lb bar for 6-8 reps, should I just AMRAP until I get 10, then go with progression as normal? Odd since I can row 135 for 10 with proper form. Must be my trex arms. Im doing...
  • Sticky: progression and next steps

    Hi Night, I know you mention in the FAQ how to progress after graduation, but I had a few specific questions. For context, I have been on this program for years, and my bench is 175 for 11 reps at...
  • Sticky: SLDL calf tension

    Any idea why I can sometimes feel SLDL primarily in the calves? When I focus on putting more weight into heels I can feel it more in hamstrings. Does this just mean my weight is too far on my toes...
  • Sticky: SLDL question

    Hey Night i have another SLDL question. I have the form down to the best of my ability, but I can only really feel the hamstring stretch at the bottom in one leg. Is this just because that hamstring...
  • Sticky: Knee pain update - fixed!

    Hey night, wanted to update you quick. Turns out all my SLDL knee problems were due to my flat foot. Focusing on screwing my feet into the floor (external hip rotation) fixed all my knee problems!...
  • Sticky: Lowering weights during cycle

    Hey Night it's me again. I know that changing weights during a cycle is not reccomended, but due to severe fatigue from work, 9 rep week on some lifts was unbelievably hard and form turned to ****. I...

    Makes sense, thanks for the reply. Would you say in the meantime stretching out the quada and hammies real goosld might help the knee?

    Interestingly it is the front of my right knee that hurts. Even with a bent knee it still feels like its on fire. Oddly enough it doesnt hurt when i squat.
  • Sticky: SLDL alternative?

    Hi Night,
    I have made sure to do the SLDL with correct form (as per the videos here and your description). No matter what, SLDL causes pain in my right knee (other exercises don't). Can i do RDL...
  • Sticky: Awesome, thanks. Thanks for all your work on this...

    Awesome, thanks. Thanks for all your work on this program man, it's been great for me. I was able to use it to take my bench from 75 lbs for 10 reps all the way to 175 for 11 reps (at BW 145). I love...
  • Sticky: Hey Night, I have one more question on the SLDL....

    Hey Night, I have one more question on the SLDL. I know that slightly pointing out the toes allows for further glute activation, but I wanted your input on how necessary this is/beneficial. For some...

    Maintain weight or very slow cut while progressively overloading your lifts.

    I'd reccomend getting bigger pants or pants that are looser on the legs while same waist size. There are so many benefits to having larger stronger legs that I would never reccomend "cutting" muscle...

    Awesome thanks for clarifying. I'm excited to try out the auto-regulated version once my lifts stall!
  • Sticky: Hey Night, Thanks for answering my previous...

    Hey Night,

    Thanks for answering my previous questions, I'm all clear on the vanilla version now. Just a quick question about your auto-regulated version. Why does a "heavy day" every session work...

    Thanks for the reply that makes sense. Two more quick questions.

    1. Is the 8-12 reps for 2 sets fine for the accessories or would you recommend a different scheme (I have been on this routine for...

    Few questions

    1. Why SLDL instead of RDL? Can RDL be a substitute for SLDL or not?
    2. Is adding in two accessories (hanging knee raises for 2 work sets plus pullups for 2 work sets fine?

    Thank you.

    Awesome thanks I will try out lower rep deadlifts. For the rest of the compound lifts, particularly squats, is 8-12 reps fine?

    Thanks! Asterisks are just there to remind me that the exercise is different on Upper body day 1 vs. day 2 and lower body day 1 vs. 2.
