Noticed you are not benching/deadlifting, any particular reason?
Thank you, sir.
As for no benching: I hate it. And it beats up my already messed up shoulder to much. Since I'll be dropping the weighted dips, I'll probably be replacing them with a DB floor press or possibly DB incline presses depending on feel --- but thats the closest I'm going to an actual bench press.
Deadlifting does occur, but not very much. I have always been much stronger in the deadlift and it goes up with little direct work. My squat has great carry over to the deadlift, but my deadlift has little carry over to the squat and if trained to often, destroyes my squat numbers. Less time deadlifting, easier recovery, more time for other lifts... deadlift goes up. If only my other lifts did that.
