Hey Seconds. you know what you're doing. You can make progress even in a crappy gym. You know that from past experience. he, he. If you keep getting bigger pretty soon your traps are going to grow right into the back of your head. Keep training and studying. Ugo

Also, I've been having difficulty keeping up with my regular work. Oh, and I finally found out how much I have to pay, and it's too expensive!

I'll stay at my crappy commercial gym, buy some bands, and try to figure out some way to do GPP work. I think those sled pulls are exactly what I need to finally build up my upper body.

If you have any ideas, let me know. Also, I may consider starting a new routine, so feel free to share any programs you've had success with.

btw, here's just a sampling of the sights I got to take in while working out there (I didn't take the pic). These are a few of the ladies who regularly work out there.

Great pic.

Regarding upper body strength, are there certain areas giving you grief, or is it your entire upper body?

Default Possible Routine

Just typing it out so I remember it later...not sure if this is it.

Day 1: max effort squat
Day 2: dynamic effort bench
Day 3: dynamic effort deadlift
Day 4: max effort bench
Day 5: max effort deadlift
Day 6: dynamic effort bench
Day 7: dynamic effort squat
Day 8: max effort bench

Positives
+ Equal time for upper & lower body
+ Equal time for squat & deadlift
+ Covers dynamic and max effort for all 3 lifts

Negatives
- The squat days will probably help my deadlift, but deadlift probably won't help squat, and...
- ...I only get 2 squat sessions for every 8
- Completing a cycle will take 2 or more weeks

I don't really see the point of a dynamic deadlift day. Your developing speed in all those muscles when you do dynamic squatting. Also, I don't really see giving the same time to both upper and lower body as a positive. Powerlifting is all about lower body. Even Benching becomes an upper AND lower body movement when the weights get bigger. If you were to take out the dynamic deadlift day and the bench day following it then you would have a 6 day rotation, squatting twice during that time.

Just a thought...
