    Ok, here's a video from end of last week, I was going a little easy because the weekend before, I strained my chest and it bruised pretty good so was kind of testing the waters to make sure it wasn't torn, so I was a little nervous but it's all good now. This was the second paused triple I believe...

    Jeremy,

    Typically how long do your heavy chest days last?

    How many movements are you doing?

    Do you only hit chest on those days, or do you hit tri's shoulders, or lats as well?

    Typically how long do your heavy chest days last?

    Honestly a while, the first thing I had the last workout was like two triples with 615 or something so I spend a good solid 45 min to an hour warming up for that..I'd guess on average if I move through it pretty quick it's about three hours

    How many movements are you doing?

    Flat bench and about 3 other pressing things like deadpress, band press, wide grip, etc. Then about 4-5 other movements like hammer curls, chest supported incline db rows, etc.

    Do you only hit chest on those days, or do you hit tri's shoulders, or lats as well?

    Mainly chest, follow every workout with some sort of ab exercise and aux stuff so sometimes chest ends with hammer curls or something but 99% of it is chest.

    Do you have any recommendations for rotator cuff rehab/prehab?


    Kind of an odd question I guess, but do you have any strategies for gaining strength while maintaining weight?

    When I do it I'm usually pretty warm after flat bench but would spend more time easing into it if I wasn't. I usually do a couple with 315, then 405 then maybe a rep or two with 495 before starting my sets but they go quick.

    For rotator cuffs, I do a few things. Weekly I do scalpula retractions, ITY's, and will vary with rear delt supersets, around the worlds, and a few other things but mainly those.

    Strength gain and wt maintenance can be controlled with diet and moderate cardio. I don't like cardio and try to do short ones like sprints but now we push my truck and an ambulance up a slight hill at work. Heart rate shoots through the roof and it's over very quick.

    Jumping into the thread. Thanks for the Q&A opp & congrats on your baby girl!

    Looking for tips to build up my weak points:

    Deadlift. How to maintain hamstring & glute tension at the start? My hips are rising too quickly before the bar breaks the ground. I'm failing reps because I'm essentially trying to straight-leg it.

    Squat. Getting stuck in the hole after a pause. Already strong at pushing knees out. Usually I might get a little hip drive forward & up, then fail.

    Bench. Good chest roll at setup. My c-curve is pretty flat when I stay tight; is a good roll just a matter of flexibility? If I move into a decent roll, I tend to lose tightness.

    Thanks again.

    Animal is def into supporting powerliftin these days. Not just Hoornstra and Seath, but also sponsorin Dan Green, Sam Byrd, Eric Lilliebridge, Ernie Lilliebridge Jr., Ernie Lilliebridge Sr., Brandon Lilly, Garrett Griffin, Richard Hawthorne, Grant Higa, Brent Willis, and others... To be sponsored by Animal, gotta be a solid lifter but also a solid representative of the sport... That is, share Animal's core values.

    Do you think this is 'too much'? Somebody told me that combining the too would be too much (although Jim Wendler did say that using DC on assistance work would be a good idea).

    By the end of my week 3's (out of the 4 week cycles), i REALLY feel the need for a deload and then i take a deload on the 4th week. I feel like the deload week is helping me recover for the next 3 weeks.

    If i'm feeling recovered after the deloads, do you think its okay for me to keep working like this? I really like this kind of training, and i dont want to switch back to normal 'volume' style training.

    If you think combining these two is retarded for a natural lifter, please call me out on this. If not, I'm going to keep hitting it hard. I prefer high-intensity training anyway. I'd rather do a few really intense painful sets, than a whole bunch of average sets.


    (btw, sorry for blowing up both of your threads here and on the FORVM. i just have a ton of sh*t i want to learn. i'm a bodybuilder who is now doing 5/3/1 and learning powerlifting)

    For the deads, I do that from time to time also and just have to tell myself to sit into it. I try to look up as high as possible and rock to my heels when I pull and it fixes it. Hard to really adjust or critique without seeing as everyone is different, I have the shorter arms so I have to get way the hell down there to start. However, I try to imagine I'm actually squatting it and sit back and it works out. Sorry for the vagueness...

    As for getting stuck in the hole, can try box squats but what I like are speed sets out of the hole paused. Drop the weight a little and do sets of around five to where you really feel the last rep or two. That worked great for me.

    As for bench I can give an opinion but I'm a very flat bencher. I don't really arch at all, maybe an inch or two in the middle and that's it. So, I know with the arches, flexibility is very important, hence the rollers, etc. Tightness becomes even more important as those muscles are now assisting in the stability and balance throughout the entirety of the lift. But for specific details on that...I'm not real sure, like I said...flat bencher. Sorry.

    Animal is full of great guys that are very family oriented. You can tell that immediately as you sign on as you are immediately treated as part of the animal family. In my opinion, it would be near impossible to compete with the talent they have brought onto the team lately in all aspects of the strength sports...all three powerlifting lifts, strongman, etc. Second to none.

    It's all good man, what we're here for. I was the same, started in bodybuilding and switched over. with me now, my workouts seem like they're so long training with Josh, like three hours, I can barely stand and usually sit outside before even trying to drive home. Incorporating that training if you can handle it is fine in my opinion, as long as you're not overdoing it, and only you will know. If you're good for three weeks of that, which is exactly where I'm at, and then dead for a week of deload...then recovered immediately after...you're doing good. Some may argue and say too much as a lot of powerlifters train like three times a week for a couples hours, twice on bench...but I like this method. Make sure diet and sleep are in check and listen to your body, it knows when it's done.

Incorporating that training if you can handle it is fine in my opinion, as long as you're not overdoing it, and only you will know. If you're good for three weeks of that, which is exactly where I'm at, and then dead for a week of deload...then recovered immediately after...you're doing good. Some may argue and say too much as a lot of powerlifters train like three times a week for a couples hours, twice on bench...but I like this method. Make sure diet and sleep are in check and listen to your body, it knows when it's done.
    Awesome thanks bro.

    My plan was to take a 1 week deload, but I'm at day 5 and I'm feeling much better and ready to train again. I think i'm just gonna hit it hard and start back on another 3 week cycle. Do you think its okay to go based on feeling?

    Do you have a specific amount of time you deload for? or is it based on how you feel?

    Well, I usually feel anxious and ready to go about halfway through deload but I always hit a full cycle of each day, so I have a four day split and my work schedule is weird, I work every third day for 24 hours, so if I work Monday, I train tues, wed, then work Thursday, then train fri, sat, etc...so I deload a full 4 day of training then start fresh. Usually right at 6-7 days.

    Tom

    well to be honest everyone has their stick point and getting that killed would be the fastest. To generate speed, make sure you throw in deficit deads and band deads from time to time. Also, vary the reps, for a few weeks start at 5x5, then do 5x4, then 3x3, etc and you'll work up to that weight in no time. Post a vid if you can and we can evaluate it farther to see if there's anything form-wise that will change it quicker.

    I shoot for around 2 gallons a day, but always get at least 1 1/2 or so, depends on my day, if outside a lot, etc. Funny when I competed in Russia, I always asked for water and they were like...why? We drink juice like peach juice. Just not the norm to drink there...I don't see how.

    Okay thanks for the reply and tips, will have a video of me going for my 1 rm in a couple days to a week. Ive never tried to pull a deadlift and failed so perhaps I can pull more then I think. Im joining a gym soon owned by a really good strength coach so he should help a lot too. Will get a video up asap and put said exercises into my programme.

    Cheers fella ! Goodluck on your wr bench. Mirin.

    Cool man, post when you can. Joining the gym will definitely help. You can always learn something from somebody, sometimes from the place you'd least expect it. Good luck, you'll make it.

    Thanks for the good luck.

    I don't usually, but this was my speed day and I was getting used to getting explosion off my chest and just feeling the bar. The goal was to have 3 reps, 9 sets, with 30 seconds rest between sets...and from unrack to rack, less than 2 seconds so it's designed to create the explosive power off chest...so I was just feelin it out basically...next chest workout is heavy and I'll post it.

    How much do you reverse grip bench and do you see any carry over with it to normal grip bench?

    I've really only done close grip board work or with bands so not really sure how it compares but I would guess considerably higher.
