Great depth on that squat. One thing though. I may be seeing it wrong but it appears that you are tilting your head down forward when you descend and this may be causing your back to round. I can't really tell and it just may be me. Any particular reason for the high rep squats?



You're right. I do look down slightly. I didn't realize it looked like that much until I seen the vid. Everything is quite tight and my back isn't rounding. It's just my head moving a little. Looks worse in the vid and with a hat exaggerates the appearance.  The high reps, is that the 15? or the 5x10 after? 15 is just what I could do. I'm lighter than my 90% for sure and I'm running the same weight as my last cycle cause of a possible knee problem but the 10's after that are just what the program says.

Thanks for the critiques everyone

Yesterday was deads. Felt ok and it went ok. Not quite enough gas in the tank.

Hanging leg raises

 I swear the hanging leg raises are harder on my shoulders than on my abs. The first rep is always a little messed up.

Ok, I wasn't sure about your back and the hat made it harder to tell with your head. I was just curious about the 15 reps. Don't know if your program calls for that.

Solid session, I have to OHP seated as well, my only basement gym drawback. It's not so bad though.
Awesome pressing and chins!

Can I play critique here? lol.

So, if you are pulling 17 reps on your 'heavy' set, those other sets you are doing... 105 x3.. 95 x5.. 

What's the point? They are not 'warming you up' or otherwise getting you ready for a very light to you, heavy set.

I mean, the program is a good one, but it really seems you are programmed way too lightly.

You are not programmed at 90% of 1rm.

We all have our reasonings, so understand I am just curious (didn't read prior pages for detail if it is there) more than anything. Especially given you could be pushing 10-20lbs on that over head press and still pull 10 reps on that 1+.

I'll check earlier posts later today, but this was something I meant to question a couple times prior. And, I didn't as I didn't want it to come across ...  wrong.

No worries trev. I am definetly lighter than 90%. I feel I progess better if I go slow and start lighter. I'm not preping for a contest so there is no deadline.I did stronglifts 5x5 and found it progressed too fast for me on certain lifts. Sounds wierd but I guess thats how I am. I know once I get a little more weight on the bar the reps will drop rapidly. I'm hoping that by progressing slow I can push through previouse plateaus. I also spent a week in the hospital with rhabdomyolisis a few years ago so I have to be a little careful. I respect everyones opinions and advice on this forum. I've been following for a while and this group is very supportive and quick with help ar pointers no matter what level or type of lifting anyone is at. Might be a small group but a good one.

Hope that explains a little better.

And now for the lifting part.

Deads today.

5/3/1cycle 2 week 3

Deads

150x5
175x5
205x3
245x5
270x5
300x15(1+)
135x10x5

Hanging leg raises
10x5

Good day today. Didn't feel so light headed today after 300#. Leg raises went well too. Last couple are usually a bit of a struggle.

Just a quick question. Is mixed grip or DOH better for deads. Or is it just personal preference?
