    well, theres about a 125 lb difference between my max squat and dead.... and i need to bring up my squat for more power development.

    Currently 145bw 425 dead, 300lb squat

    program is as follows

    ME week

    day1 Box squats 5x3
    bulgarian squats 3x5
    bench 5x3
    weighted pullups 3x10

    Day2 Deadlifts 5x3
    stiff legged deadlifts(just added them back in)3x5
    military press 3x5
    bent over rows 3x5


    DE week

    1. box sqauts 5x3
    bench 5x3
    unweighted pullups 3x15-20

    2. Deadlifts 5x3
    powercleans 3x5
    bench 5x3
    pullups unweighted (same)



    I think the sticking point is my hamstrings because of the difference in my deads and sqauts. I just added stiff legged deads to address this more, but i also would like to know if there are any things i should switch up or add in to either my Max week or my Dynamic week...

    any input greatly appreciated. I would use a GHR but i dont see one in my gym.

    If you're serious about lifting, quit doing bullshit abbreviated routines, alternating training with real weights and training with fag weights.

    What he said - stick with just max effort stuff until your numbers get considerably higher - then you can try some westside stuff. The SLDL are good but do them heavy too.
