Re: Chewy's Powerlifting Log

Do you incorporate deficit deads from time to time mate? I think I've done them once or twice before (long time ago). I've saw some of the lifters at our club do them as well. My deadlifts were always very fast off the floor so I never seen the need for them. Now, pulling sumo I've noticed I'm slow...

Re: Difficulty targeting back muscles

Are you assuming your upper back isn't stronger because your posture isn't better? Just because you strengthen the muscles up there isn't going to automatically fix that, you need to work on your posture actively.


But if you do have a lack of size up there;
-Pullups
-Pendlay Rows
-Deadlift

Re: Bulking phase

Hey man, have you considered just doing speed pulls a couple of times a week instead of heavy deadlifts once a week? This way you could reduce stress on your back, get plenty of practice on setup and keeping a rigid position, work on form, and still get work in. It's not going to be ideal for streng...

Re: How do you lift for strength and muscle?

5/3/1 is a great program, but it depends if you know all the main compound lifts - squat/bench/deadlifts/OHP/rows. If you don't (or haven't done them for a long time, or technique needs work), the main 5/3/1 templates simply don't have enough practice for these lifts in a week (typically just once a...

Tue 1st May 2012 Went into the gym today for some mobility work. Warmed up, done various squats with an empty bar. Worked up on overhead squats to 35kg x5 (bar was way too far back at the top, needs practice). Then some snatch grip high pulls just with 60kg (deadlifting tomorrow) - more just to see...
