Skinny, just curious why anything but shrugs? Although I do do a lot of rack pulls and cleans, I still like to incorporate shrugs as an isolation for the traps.

And does anyone get a weird pain in the collar bone/clavicle during dips or decline bench?

dont micromanage ur diet and lift hard (dont neglect conditioning like running etc) and ull see results.

the only real important thing about diet is to eat your fruits and vegetables
Only started seeing results when cleaned up diet 2 years ago.

Barely did any cardio and cut all from proper food intake.

Diet = 75%+ and the other 25% is training.

Nutrition is key.

Side note:
Halo or skinny - How do I get access to the progress pictures thread. Thanks.

I've been doing them, probably my most favourite exercise to do besides squats. Actually just about to hit the oval to do them (got a separate day for explosive lifts/exercises)

what's your leg workout man?

i'll be following your 5/3/1 program for the next month and see how it goes. I noticed its a bit tweaked compared to wendler's 4 wave scheme but imo urs is the one im lookin for cus its like hypertrophy/power.

I'm doing the 5-3-1 "boring but big" program. You do the main lifts the same way you do normal 5-3-1 but for your assistance exercise you do another main lift for 5 sets 10 reps. So my leg days look like this:

Day 1
Main lift: Squats 5-3-1 style
assistance: 5x10 deadlifts

Day 2
Main lift: Deadlifts 5-3-1 style
assistance: 5x10 squats

I usually only do the minimum reps on the main lift (as opposed to normal 5-3-1 where you do as many reps as you can on the last set). That way I can really push the assistance work after. The 5x10 squats/deadlifts get damn hard when you're using 60-70% of your 1rm.

oh but i thought the last set is supposed to be only 1 rep, and thus 5-3-"1" unless i'm mistaken

but ya looks good, i guess only just 2 exercises then eh? no leg press or that other machine stuff?

You're not really mistaken, but the thing you missed is in normal 5-3-1 you do the last set for as many reps as you can.

Eg. for week 1, your 5's week, you do:

First set: 5 x 65% of 1rm.
Second set: 5 x 75%
Third set: 5+ x 85%

That last set you're shooting for a minimum of 5 reps, but the goal is to do as many reps as you can and to set a new pr. The first two sets aren't gonna be that hard, the last set is the one that makes good stuff happen (or as Jim Wendler puts it, grows hair on your balls). Hope that makes sense.

ahhh makes sense. so in total it would be 9 sets in total since theres 3 sets of 5, 3 sets of 3, and 3 sets of 1?

Hehe no. Only 3 working sets for your main lift each workout.

Week 1
5 x 65%
5 x 75%
5+ x 85%

Week 2
3 x 70%
3 x 80%
3+ x 90%

Week 3
5 x 75%
3 x 85%
1+ x 95%

All the numbers with a + beside it is actually for max reps.
