Squat

1x25x65
1x25x75
1x25x85

Bench
3x5x160

Hang Power Clean
5x3x105

On my power clean, i was not really doing two pulls, i was just trying to deadlift it off the floor fast and i was using my arms to much. I am going to try hang power cleans for a while. it was easier to catch it in the rack position.

Pullups

4x3

Re: Weasel45 Log

Your log freaks me out due to the good progress on squats/deads but very slow press / bp.

i'm afraid this will be me, i have like no pecs and skinny arms.

i guess one question i have for you is, how much weight have you gained through this? I am eating tons and gaining weight steadily so i'm hopeful that it will help me avoid stalling out forever on presses, but ack!

any thoughts world?

I got up to 205, now im 200. I dont eat that much but i was drinking a ton of beer so that could be why my progress slowed way down. plus i wasnt microloading the press/bench so that could have an effect too. good luck

Re: Weasel45 Log

I'll preface this as I'm hesitant to give advice to anyone who squats as much as you do, but I'll share my thoughts/experiences on SS with the two presses.

If you don't close grip bench (and I don't mean hands touching each other, but at least hands like 8 inches apart) like 85% to 90% of what you regular bench, then I'm a firm believer that it is worth your time to work on close grip bench. Close grip bench is really solid for triceps strength obviously, but as you go heavier in it you are forced to bring the bar down lower on your chest. A lower bar position may not immediately be more powerful than how you're benching, but it doesn't take long to get that way as it puts less strain on your shoulder joints and makes it easier to get good leg drive.

My bench was stuck at 5x5x155 for the longest time until I started prioritizing my close grip bench. I worked on my close grip until it was at 3x5x145, then when I went back to normal bench starting at 145 I made straight progress to 175, and eventually made 3x5x185.

In my experience, the OHP benefits significantly from close grip bench as well. Any stall I've had in this lift was overcome relatively quickly by either the increase in my close grip bench, actively keeping my elbows in front of the bar for the whole lift, resting at the top, and focusing on vasavla (sp?) breathing. So if you're not doing one of those, that's where I'd start.

Re: Weasel45 Log

Alright, long time since an update. Im starting a new program that I got from KSC on starting strength. How does it look?

Day 1 (Monday)

Bench Press 3 x 5
Bench Assistance Exercise (see below)
BB Rows 3-5 x 5-10
Additional Lat/Back work – Shrugs, DB Rows, Pulldowns, etc, 3 x 10 (optional)

Day 2 (Tuesday)

Squats 3 x 5
Goodmornings 3 x 5
GHR 3 x 10
GHD Sit Ups 3-5 x 10

Day 3 (Thursday)

Speed Bench 10 x 3
Press 3 x 5
Pull Ups x 30-50
Additional Lat/Back work 3 x 10-15 (optional)

Day 4 (Friday)

Box Squat 12 x 2
Speed Pulls (10 x 1) alternated weekly with a DL or DL variant (1 x 5)
Reverse Hypers 3 x 10
Weighted Sit Bends 3 x 10

Like the hypertrophy plan this model is based on a “4x4” principle. Four days per week,
no more than 4 exercises per session.
Each lowerbody day consists of two barbell movements: a squat and a hip extension (DL
or GM), and also an assistance movement for the posterior chain (low back/hamstrings)
and abs.
The upper body day consists of two pressing movements and two pulling movements.
On Monday, the bench assistance movement should target your weaknesses. If you have
problems with lockout then adding in some heavy board presses or floor presses is a good
idea. For most raw lifters, lockout is not the problem, and you may be better served by
doing full ROM movements like DB Benches or Inclines for your assistance work. If
you like, you can alternate each week between a full range of motion assistance lift and a
partial range of motion assistance lift. Something like this: incline, floor press, DB bench
press, 2 board press, DB Incline press, rack lockout, etc. Also, it is important not to
neglect the upper back. These muscles make up a large amount of muscle mass and
having a big strong back helps you in all three lifts.
On Thursday, you may choose to press before speed benching. This is a good idea if you
want to do a high rep set after your speed benches, which is often done to maintain
muscle mass in the upper body. Presses should be a staple exercise in your program.
Better than any other exercise they help keep the shoulders healthy, which can get beat up
from a steady diet of bench pressing. A lot of lifters can’t do speed benches every week.
It can take a toll on the joints after time. Feel free to replace the speed benches with
another pressing movement. Dips or close grip bench presses might be a good option, or
any of the aforementioned bench assistance exercises in the previous paragraph.
