Do the first couple of sets off a block like 6 inches tall (also called deficit deadlifts). Then do your max rep off the floor like normal, after using an increased range of motion on the first couple of reps/sets it will feel much easier doing it from the floor, worked for me.

Where do you lose the lift?

Outside of that, you don't have to do anything fancy. Do a reset, start your program over with your max at 265, go through the whole program, try again. If your missing the lift still, then as harsh as it may sound, you're either not following the program you are on very well or your self program is awful and you should get on a real one.

This is how I've been doing it.

"light (secondary muscles) 1 minute rests (bi,tri's, calves, traps, even some of my shoulder exercises).

Medium 2 minute rests ( Incline/flat bench, rows, pull ups, chin ups, shoulder press)

Heavy 3-5 minute rests (squats, dead-lift's)

Lift depending.

Olympic lifts about 3 minutes.

Heavy singles/doubles/triples 1-2 minutes.

Accessory or hypertrophy work less than 1 minutes.


Obviously, if I feel that I need an extra minute before another max lift I'll take it, but that's a general guideline that I use for myself or my clients.

Eat more you may not be getting enough protein/food to promote muscle growth, all my best lifts happen when I'm bulking and heavier.

Check these out. I've been looking for something to help me with my dumbbell pressing. Just getting those mofo's up is a pain in the azz. Thinking of ordering these.

Here's the website - http://www.powerhooks.com/

From what I've read, the down side is they are a bit awkward at first and take a little getting use too.

If I saw someone taking up a squat rack so they can do some dumbbell pressing I would be very disappoint.

At the gym - yes!. But not if you have your own home gym.

It's honestly not something that you couldn't do yourself without having to pay for all of that content. I think the biggest part of it is the nutrition guide that tells you what you can and can't eat. Nutrition is like the offensive line of working out. It makes up a lot of your results but the lifts/exercises are like the running backs that get all of the glory. I downloaded it specifically for the yoga routine and I thought that was pretty good.

Yeah it's true you COULD do all of it yourself, but the thing I've found with the at-home programs is that it adds that structure/push that you might not get doing it on your own. Kinda like having a personal trainer.

I've never done Insanity but I'm a very loyal/satisfied Rushfit user, and like I said Rushfit is all moves that I could do on my own, but when you have the DVDs instructing you I think it helps a lot of people to have that non-stop, "gotta keep up" element to it. If I'm just working out on my own I might get distracted, take longer breaks than I should etc, but when you're keeping up with the pace of a DVD you almost feel like you gotta compete with it. It helps keep your motivation and intensity up IMO.

I know a lot of people that have done Insanity and liked it though. Keep us updated on how it goes for you BrownEye

Cutting down to 210lbs, expect almost all my lifts to drop 20-40lbs, but eh who cares. Will be in Brazil, Puerto Rico and possibly Taiwan this year so I plan on looking lean and ripped.

Must watch short (3 min) inspirational/psyche up video for any weightlifters/gym goers on here.

It's a video of Ronnie Coleman's first power lifting meet, his enthusiasm and love of weights is so damn infectious. Pretty cool 207kg (455lb) lift by an old dude who legit looks like a cancer patient too.

Loved watching this before gym.

Man I hate taking so many shits every day due to eating a lot.

Anyways, gonna be a rough week workout wise. Grocery stores close at 9pm here in Australia and didn't get a chance on Sunday to hit it up due to chillin at the beach at Gold Coast all day. So I'm missing my cottage cheese pre-bed snack. I hate eating that shit anyways so I think I'm cool with taking a week off from it. Gotta take a big gulp of water everytime I eat a scoop of it so it goes down without me puking.

Missed my work out last Friday because I was sick so doing four workouts this week. Bad workout today as well..dry cough from drinking coffee so had to rest. Oh well. Got it done. Race not a sprint.

I see a deload on overhead press in my future but I hear that's always the first plateau on stronglifts.

That was a scary looking dead, but damn can granpa lift that shit. Hoping to reach AT LEAST 405 by the end of the year and this was definitely a little bit of some extrinsic inspiration.

Anyway, right now I'm seeing the benefits of a deload. I always felt too excited to lift or move but because I'm getting caught up in my acads and council stuff, I haven't had a complete week of training since the last week of 2013. I'm looking a leaner and somewhat bigger though and my eating hasn't changed all that much. If anything, I've even been more permissive. One of those WTH Effects that Pavel and Dan John speak of, I guess.
