Today is Week 2 Back day. The power rack at the gym has like, fifty bajillion holes to place the pins. Do I still go for the second pin, or should I go higher? Thanks in advance.

I like for the bar to be just below the knee when your standing infront of it.

A couple more questions for you, sir.

1) I lift alone, typically, and in doing the board presses I simply slipped the skinny part under my belt to hold it in place. Is there a better/safer way to do this, or am I doing just about the best I can?

2)My gym doesn't have a Roman Chair, what is an acceptable substitute for Roman chair situps?

3)What is a Bulgarian Squat? I think I know what you're talking about, but would rather hear it straight from the horse's mouth to make sure I'm not messing up.

Thanks in advance.

1) That seems like a logical way, both MikeM and Mr. A have a nice set up where they use a cord/strap to strap it to their chest. Might want to look into that.

2. Just a weighted sit up will be fine. Just trying to work the core. Any of your favorite core movements will work here.

3)

there are prob better examples out there, but I thought she had a nice body Easy to check her form

If you had to pick between only using 10# plates, or 45# plates which would you pick?

In standard periodization routines, like your fantastic "BIG" program, is it necessary to deload for an entire week before and after the 1 rep max attempt?

Especially if that attempt is an unspotted solid gym effort, not an all out meet.

It all depends on how your body is holding up. Will I say its a "must" no, but most people will need at least 1 week during that time frame to deload. I would take the week off before the max attempt week. Then if you felt fine, you could go back into it. I normally suggest that lifters do something different for a few weeks. Some odd lifts they dont normally do, something just for fun. Then jump right back into it.
