I would dop the rep range in my aux work. Try doing pause reps 5x5 with a solid weight, and a super set of dumbbell skull crushers, and double arm hammer curls. 3x8 on skulls and 1 minute each set of curls.

On your second day do some inclines and OHP stuff. Along with crazy high rep tri work (20-50 rep per set. Think of this blood flow day.

Thanks, JB! I will make these adjustments.

Hey Jb,

Do you implement any calisthenics when training a powerlifter?

Like would Handstand Push-ups assist in OH Pressing and weighted push-ups/dips assist in your bench? Or there is no connection between them?

I typically don't program much in. At times I have people do bench dips, or even weighted dips. Pull ups are always a good one to add in. 98% of the guys I help couldn't do a handstand push up if their life depended on it haha!

You are 100% correct: I am fat and clinically malco-ordinated. I would fall on my fat head.

Hey JB. I am considering getting into geared lifting soon. How would you recommend going about getting started? I already have someone who would probably train with me, which is probably half the battle

diff for every person, but someone of your strength level I would pick up some used single ply gear and start there.

Hey JB, seeing as your a sumo puller, I was wondering if you could help me fine tune my sumo form.

455x3,495x2(or 3, doesn't look like I completely locked out the last one), 545x0


This is only the 2nd time I've deadlifted with a bar from the floor in ~3-4 months. I feel it's a good starting point, but would appreciate any advice you could give me.
Thanks in advance!

Form is solid for not pulling off the floor much. THink about adding in some form pulls off the floor every few weeks. 315 range is enough weight, you just want to keep the form working.

What I see: Weights got heavier and you began to jerk it off the floor. If you look your middle back bows. You are doing a poor job of flexing the bar. As you get into position you need to be pulling up and into you on the bar. It should be flexing on the ground. By doing this it will load the legs as well and you can squat it off the floor. Think more about glutes at lockout rather than hips. squeeze your butt checks together, you will naturally force hips forward.

Last add in more upper back work! ROWS!

Thats a damn strong pull with a big number just around the corner!

Thanks JB, I've just recently found a day where my college rec center isn't full of trainers who are scared of the deadlift. I'll be able to deadlift much more consistently now.

Yeah, I definitely see the bow, will try harder to pull all of the slack out. As I think back to it I know that I forgot about using my glutes.

Just added BB rows back in after a little lay off! Was not pleased with how they've gone down, but will be working back up.

I hope so! Lifting isn't the same without deadlift. I'll be working on everything you've said. Thanks again.
