I take a pre-workout called NO Xhaust from time to time and it has beta alanine. Within about a minute it does that to me.

Thanks. I kept the weight light and moving fast. I find that a really low box (12'' - 14'') really works on driving the hips forward. Also, at this point my CNS is hard-wired to hit parallel because of using a low box. So all and all, low box gets thumbs up.

I like low box for speed work, except mine is only 15 inches. You have me beat.

Depends on your height. I assume you are a tall guy who hits parallel at 15''. I'm barely 6 feet, so I have to use a lower box.

I am 5'10". I think I could have gone a bit lower in my youth. I still have pretty good depth, but at my current weight it probably shaves an inch or two off...

ME upper. This week I am in between two bench cycles, so I decided to do some dumbbell work. I worked up to some heavy sets of 5, then did some triceps assistance work. I find DB work has been helping with uneven lockouts on the bench. Here goes:

DB press (flat bench):
50 x 5
80 x 5
100 x 5
110 x 5
110 x 5
110 x 5 (PR)


Sitting one-arm triceps extensions:
30 x 12
40 x 10
45 x 8

Triceps dips:
light band x 8
45 + light band x 6
superset:
70 + light band x 3
light band until fail
body weight until fail

Closegrip pushups:
2 sets until fail (total: 40)

GPP and recovery. Still feeling very sore from a previous squat workout, so today I did the following:

60 minutes physio/massage
15 minutes foamroller
Stretching
Kb swings: 55 x 8, 85 x 8, 90 x 8

Plenty of protein and glutamine
