Do you think that's enough lat work? If it were me, id want to be doing quite a bit more than that. Things like chins, seated rows, lat shrugs and pulldowns shouldnt negatively effect your deadlifting, and none of them are particularly taxing on the lower back.

Keep your pulling/pressing balanced or slightly in favour of pulling will do good things for your shoulders in the long term.

Friday 3rd November

60kg x 10
80kg x 5
105kg x 5,5,5,5,5,5 - I needed a slight spot on the last rep of the 2nd,4th and 5th sets, but I nailed the last set easier than any of the others. I need to remember that I cant get through the heavy days as quickly as the light days. It certainly isnt a strength issue.

NG 4 Boards
110kg x 2,2,2,2,2,2 - these really werent easy. I do all my benching with a narrow grip so my triceps were f**ked by this point.

Curl Grip Pulldowns
105kg x 5
133kg x 5
150kg x 5
160kg x 5 - huge PB! - quite a bit of body english here and the last rep was pretty rubbish, but f**k me this was heavy.

Finished off with 3 sets of lat shrugs on the seated row using the stack (119kg). Things finally seem to be coming back together Eek

Right, I've had enough of the randomly heavy singles on the deadlift. Time for another run on the deadlift routine that got me pretty solid earlier in the year.

100kg x 5
140kg x 3
180kg x 1
210kg x 2,2,2,2,2

Platform Deads
140kg x 1
160kg x 1
180kg x 1
200kg x 1
210kg x 1
220kg x 1 - slow, but certainly not a max.

Curl Grip Pulldowns
105kg x 5
126kg x 8,8,8

Seated Rows
Stack x 8,8,8,8

NG 3 Boards

How much lat work do you do in a week Joe? As a side note, my bench is always at its strongest when my lats are strong, and ive noticed a definite corralation between doing heavy rows and bench strength. A lot of people on a lot of boards I follow have said the same.

I would have to say that Adams 250 kg deadlift and 220 kg squats were the most impressive, all the more so considering the day from hell that was happening at the time!!!

I'm sensing a little biasGrin

The lifts that have really impressed me the most are probably:

- Adam's 250kg deadlift

- Joni's 227.5kg deadlift

There are plenty of others to mention but these are two that stick in my mind. Basically because its probably the weakest lift for both of them relatively, and I know how much the lifts meant to both of them.

I think my best lift in Sugden was the 240kg dead off of the plates, although I'm hoping to surpass that soon enough.
» Your best moments in lifting? (Go to post)04-11-2006 @ 16:35 
This is quite tough, but I would say:

1 - My first 500lb deadlift.

2 - My first 300lb Raw Bench

3 - Going 9/9 in my first full meet, definitely a highlight!

Oh and we need to get as many people there as possible I reckon, Millsy? Boar? I'll drop Faz an e-mail and see if he might be interested. Someone should drop Badboy an e-mail too, im sure he'd be interested.

Edinburgh boys?? I await your feeble excuses!Wink

Also, Joe, you're doing this too.

Good stuff David, you're more than welcome. In fact, now you're going to need a bloody good excuse not to do it!

Btw, Joni, I really dont think you're getting anywhere near enough lat work right now. From looking through your log the pressing v pulling volume is pretty different. Plus if you're going to do the Russian squat routine then you're going to be pressing 3 times a week.

Dont forget your lat work mate, especially not with your history of shoulder problems.
» yo adam, deadlift/squat split (Go to post)02-11-2006 @ 14:29 
I like the plan. Its not far off a basic westside split, a lot of the guys logs that ive looked at do speed squats and deads in a week, and I think that as long as you arent maxing every sunday you wont come near burn-out.

Just make sure you make progress on the Sundays. Unless you have a real firm handle on your speed stuff its not quite so easy to measure progress, so make sure you get some on the Sundays.

I agree with the deads being slightly heavier too, I think 60-80% works better for them, although I actually do 'semi-speed work' at 85%. But that might be a little high for your goals.

Personally ive never enjoyed dumbell rows, but people seem to and get good results with them too. Just not one for me.
