From what I know to be true, most of your deadlift gains happen after an intensive squatting program. Most powerlifters don't start deadlifting until 2-3 weeks before a comp, so just goes to show how much of a transition you can get from squat to deadlift.

I would just focus on squats to start off with first. In addition to that, rackpulls, hypers, weighted hip bridges and other supplementary exercises.

Go back to deadlifts afterawhile, and you'll notice that your sticky points will be in totally different places, and your leg/hip drive will be so much stronger/tight.

What's your current 1 RM for deadlifts?

I think hip strength and explosiveness is an issue for me.

My goal right now is to increase my squat (currently on 5/3/1 for it). We'll see how my deadlift goes after a couple of months.

My DL max is shit. Last time I checked which was 2-3 months ago was around 355lb. My 1RM squat is only 20lb lighter

Yeah man, I'm also working on both my squat and deadlift, having an ACL sprain definetly does not help.

Will be starting smolov for squats in february, with interval sprints on tuesdays and thursdays. I really feel that sprinting will do the trick for me because simply squatting alone I'm not able to activate as much of my muscle fibers as much as if I were to combine them with sprints. Hamstrings have always been a weakpoint for me, so will be targetting those as well with stifflegged dumbbell deadlifts.

There are times when I feel like my naturally smaller waist will hinder my deadlift numbers, but after seeing that video matlock posted, really made me realize what human potential really is.

Goal will be to squat 4 and dead 5

Deadlifts> work on your grip, form and muscle activation.

At at 2:30. Had spag + meat sauce + 2 eggs.

My last meal will be a lamb chop and some almonds. at 8.

Workout was mediocre. I am sick so I may have lost some strength at the bench. I was only able to do 285 today x 4, but I did do incline, weighted dips and bosu ball pushups followed by 15 minutes of medium intensity cardio.

I GOT THIS LETS DO IT.
need way more protein bro

Speaking of food, can't really see what it is on the picture, but its basically 200g of Oikos 2% Greek Yogurt + 1 tbs of chia seeds + 1 tbs of honey + 1/3 of raw (uncooked oats).

Protein - 34g
Carbs - 52g
Fat - 11g
Calories - 415

I started substituting my late night protein shake with that. Love it.

Speaking of partial reps from a few pages back... I was packing up my gym gear and noticed a couple people doing bench and neither were touching the bar to their chest (or even coming close.) I try to barely touch my chest with the bar or stop just before.

Do you you guys touch the bar to your chest when doing bb bench?

I always touch tbh. I think that I get a full ROM that way.

Greek yogurt recipes eh? Here's mine, inspired by the overpriced blenz protein smoothies:
  • 1/2 cup coconut water
  • handful of frozen berries
  • 1 scoop whey protein (chocolate or vanilla is fine)
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 big tablespoon dollop of greek yogurt (I use 2% for extra richness/creaminess that the 0% doesn't have)
  • Optional: a few shreds of kale or few leaves of spinach

Blend. Delish.

The thing with Danone is that it has fillers, preservatives and gumming agents whereas Liberte and other brands do not.

I cant see any reason why you wouldnt want to touch the chest. I find that people with a weaker chest and stronger tricep will tend to fall short on their ROM so they can displace their weight onto their tricep. The lower you go, the more stretch your chest will get and the more you can train it to contract stronger. The only special case I would make for partial ROM for bench is when i am testing 1RMs

I always touch chest if I'm doing a 1rm for bench, same for squats where I go below parallel. I'm not comfertable doing a max squat at parallel kuz I always do ATG and going all the way down does affect my max but I would rather be strong with full range of motion rather then half way.

Just my 2 cents
