Couldn't be bothered doing weighted pull ups last night, so I tried doing typewriter pull ups for the first time in a while. Were a lot easier than the last time I tried.

Video above for those who don't know what it is. They're quite fun actually.

The Kneeling PUs werent really a problem but i couldnt believe i found myself struggling a but with pulling off 10 strict inverted rows, and theyre just Step 2 in the Pull-Up series.

In case anyone's interested, here's a little update:

I miss doing barbell moves. This Convict Conditioning feels good though. I've traded some of my fat for muscle using it and I feel stronger, but in a different way than from when I hit the bar. Both really good feelings though.

I think the biggest plus for me so far is that the soreness I get in my anterior shoulder from doing high-rep pushing movements has noticeably decreased. Even hitting just 25 push-ups used to kill it before, but now it's nothing really to me (although it is a bit important to keep in my mind that I have not let myself progress to full push-ups yet based on the book's philosophy).

It's also made me realize though that I suck at pulls. I've been stuck at inverted rows ever since I started. From starting out struggling to do 10 strict, I'm now struggling with 15. I noticed though that I pull too much with my arms. If any of you guys have any more tips to activating my back muscles, I'd be happy to hear them. Ever since I tried working Pavel's high tension techniques into them though, it's been easier, but I still feel that my arms are getting the brunt of the tension, which I don't think is helping me.

You seem to take your lifting seriously, so I doubt there is much more I could tell you that you already don't know for pulls. Do you pinch your shoulders back? Chest up?
What I've found that works well is tensing and touching the muscle I'm supposed to be working out helps if I feel that the secondary muscles are taking too much load.

Yeah, I try to tense my whole body before certain lifts that need prep or I find more difficult than others. I tried this other cue I got though that's intended for pull-ups, and it's to pull yourelbows to your hip, plus I tried stopping the pull at the ooint where my elbow just passes my torso. Helped greatly as I was able to hit 15 comfortably in the first set. The other 4 hour were a struggle though.

Does anyone have any advice for stalling on military presses? I seem to be stuck at the same weight for a while now and was wondering if there are some other exercises I could incorporate to help it.

I would increase frequency(if you're doing them more than 4 times per week, ignore this post).

I have just started going to the gym.

My mate who is very muscular and has been lifting for about 5 years now told me that I should use protein powder. Is it a must? I have read some negative things about it but so many people use it.

Can anyone help me with some brands as well and which to buy. Im from Australia so our stores might sell a different product to yours.

No. But it is a pretty cheap and convenient source of protein.

there are no negatives if you use one to two scoops a day
if you use A LOT it could lead to kidney or liver damage and to osteoporosis in some cases

most people who exercise need 100-150 gr. of proteins per day, and one scoop of protein powder gives you 30gr.
and its pretty cheap too

You would really need some abnormal amount of it to cause damage. It's mostly used as PWM because it's fast absorbing protein. Rest of your daily intake should come from food...

PK.

Weighted Dips and Push Presses are probably the best for assistance. Apparently squats as well.

Form-wise.
Here are links:

http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...overhead_press
http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_..._your_press_up
http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...overhead_press

The gist of it is to have a very stable base, to keep your chin back insstead of up, to squeeze the fukk outta your abs and glutes, and to PUSH the HEAD FORWARD. Rippetoe also curves his back at the rise, and pushes hips forward to lock ou.

yeah, i see a lot of kids nowadays that use way too much of it but dont really eat... calories are just as important
3-4 eggs in the morning, steak or some other meat in the afternoon, protein shake before workout, after too if you want, and something lighter for dinner, like spagheti or potatoes with cottage cheese. Have some nuts, milk and vegetables/fruit inbetween. Its simple.
