This is what i'll be following for the next few months. The only major change is the dropping of incline pressing as a main 5/3/1 movement and replacing it with some speed work for bench. It's something i've been meaning to try for a while but not had the opportunity until i joined the new gym.

A-
Speed work bench - 8 x 3 @ 50-55%
Seated DB Press - 4 x 8-12
Pullups 4 sets, first set has to be 10 reps
Chest Supported Rows - 3 x 10-15
Curls and Pushdowns

B
Squats 5/3/1
Elevated Front Grip Reverse Barbell Lunges - 3 x 5-10
Back Raises - 3 x 8-15
Rollouts

C
Bench Press 5/3/1 (prescribed reps only then two singles at the training max)
DB incline Press 5 x 8-12
Seated Rows 5 x 8-12
Tricep Extensions

D
Deadlifts 5/3/1
Safety Bar Good Mornings - 3 x 8-12
Hip Thrusts - 3 x 8-12
Pallof Press

That's true, he said that in 2009, but it's not because he can't. He tries to get as much out of a light weight as he can. He says it because he's training muscles not movements with accessory lifts.

Here's an article Bret Contreras did in 2011 quoting him. http://bretcontreras.com/2011/05/tighte ... -the-ship/

Quote:
Personally, I’ve done good mornings with 405 pounds (sumo stance arched back short ROM) but 135 pounds today with a very strict arch in the stretch felt amazing.

yeah, I mean obviously he CAN good morning with more than that, the guy's got like a 1000lb squat, he just doesn't think it necessary.

Actually, that's starting to sound familiar. I think he said something about making it harder with lighter weight.

He was talking about doing with light weight, full ROM, and sets of 20-30 reps from what I recall.
