Overall Workout Grade: A+

Notes:
Great session. I am trying to add in a bit of mobility work, so i started this session with stretches and jump rope. I will gradually increase the jump rope volume.
Bench went awesome. 320 is a weight I have never lifted. Very happy about that PR. I want a 365 bench. Screw it... I want a 405 bench.
Sorry about the rather awkward video angle. I was experimenting with a different angle. Sorry for forcing you guys to stare at my junk....
Put 2 more reps on the top set of Incline Press. I'll kick it up by 5 next cycle...yes....there will be a next cycle... I'll explain that one later.
Put 2 more rep on my top set of Kroc rows. I'll probably kick it up 5lbs next cycle. I'm still using the tricep bar and versa grips for the rows.
All around this was a really solid session. I wish they could all be like this.

Default My Yoke

I often advocate the use of strict high rep shrugs and more recently strict high rep Kirk Karwoski Rows for trap growth. I am often a minority in my opinion in favor of power shrugs. Well a picture is worth a thousand words...



To be fair I deadlift and as of the last couple months have been doing power cleans. By the way, I found it hard as hell to get these 2 half way decent pictures of myself. I don't know how people take self pictures. It's a bitch to do right.

Looking good Beef McTraps. Another 20 pounds off and that muscle is really going to pop.

Yes it does.

I think nothing is better for traps (and calves) then heavy ass weight. Keep it rolling.

I used to like doing both power and full rom strict shrugs, although I do not anticipate doing any power shrugs ever again as they will for sure compress my lower spine.

Oly lifts rock. I wish I had enough coin to take that year long Oly lifting course here in town.

Solid Trapezoids you have built up Big J!

Thanks Jim. I wouldn't count yourself out yet. Wait until you get that second opinion.
I've only ever tried the power clean, but I often look at pictures of the snatch.
It would be cool to take a long term Oly lifting course.
