I'm obviously new to powerlifting, but after years wasted on body building nonsense I'm trying to learn everything I can. I'm just getting back into lifting after about a year layoff and my 5 rep maxes are 225 bench, 295 deadlift, and about a 235 squat. Should I even bother trying to include dynamic effort lifts at this stage? As it stand now my routine is Max Effort upper body, Max Effort lower body, then a repitition upper body with days of core work and active rest in between. If I shouldn't mess with DE now, when would you guys reccomend to start, or when did you start? Any help appreciated.
