do you have any suggestions on how to consume more protein?

thanks again
--2 shakes = 50 grams
--4 hard-boiled eggs mashed in some sour cream and hot sauce = 30 grams
--4 pieces of string cheese = 30 grams

To this you can add some chicken, beef, seafood, etc and easily hit 150 grams.

Thanks BTB this all looks good. I think I've come up with a good routine that uses only a barbell and now racks. Thanks again. Hope all is good.

One quick follow up question, could you use higher reps (8-10 rep range) with the deadlift/powershrugs or floor pulls?

Default Rear Delts

Hi Steve,
what is your take on rear delt isolation being needed as some people say, even if you do compound exercises that hit that area? Do you think isolation of this muscle is necessary?
Exercises I do that I think hit that area are the Clean and press, pull/chin ups, pendlay rows, band pull aparts. Thank you, nihilist

Default High Rack Pull to Power Shrug

Hi Steve,

When doing the high rack pull-power shrug combos in your program, should your feet be remaining flat on the ground, or should you treat it almost like a power clean and come up onto your toes?

I realise it probably doesn't make much difference, just wondering. Cheers.

I think that rows/pulls do a lot to target the rear delts. If you never worked rear delts directly, I think you'ld be fine. With that said, when I have energy I'll do 3 sets for them. But I never lose sleep over missing rear delt training.

I don't treat them like a power clean, but with that said, if your feet come up a little that's perfectly fine. Anything to move that weight from point A to point B.
