^Nice gym... I miss using the trap bar. The only gym I knew with one was at BCIT. For you guys who haven't tried trap bars, they're fun. Your PR on trap bar deadlift is probably 100 lbs heavier than your oly bar deadlift.

My gym got rid of the straight bar pullup bar so I can't practice doing muscle ups anymore. I'm not strong enough/the very grippy handles/weird angle of the new handle so I can't do them anymore.

I've always felt that barbell rows, both under/over hand (when I do overs, I try to go thumbless for as much as I can), and during my light weight, I really emphasize the stretching/feeling the back contract/relax.

Then you got to go heavy, plain and simple. Suck it up buttercup

What's up with SC and all those curved barbells..sheesh, too many beasts putting on too much weight, bending all the bars.

Still a long way to go (as do many of us), but some definite progress from your last pictures.

I'll always and strongly believe in training within the 4-6 rep range for building mass (especially for us smaller guys). If you progressively go up in weight for your compound, (such as following a program like 5/3/1, which also incorporates mid-high rep range accessory exercises), you'll see more progress IMO.

I know you're against heavy training, and prefer the "pump", but have an open mind especially in the first couple years.

Thanks, I actually started experimenting heavier weight/lower volume for bi's today since Elliot Hulse from Youtube recommended lower volume and heavier weight for small muscles. So I will see how it goes.

^I was pretty fat before and still fat, you can still see my lower belly when I'm topless, but it no longer shows when I wear a shirt so I'm happy for that. Don't know if my bodyfat is low enough for maintenance or a clean bulk or I should cut maybe 5 more pounds. I was looking for approximately below 15%? Am I below that?

2 weeks ago, I finally deadlifted 5 plates (495lbs)

last week, I threw on 515lbs, got that

this week, 525lbs. got it!

My form is starting to get worse tho, might just stay at this weight for a while or invest in a belt.

what's the best way to train your grip for deadlifts?
the first set is always ok but then fatigue sets in and it starts slipping out of my hand.

I'm using mixed grip.

Use double overhand for warmup then switch to mixed when you need to
Also suggest using chalk or paper towels for extra grip.
