By the way the hack squats and deads are not touch and go, i set the bar down for 2 or 3 seconds in between reps. I just tend to lose form if i dont do each rep from a dead stop.

Back in high school I did 335 lbs for 2 reps on Decline Bench Press, 100 lbsx2 for 12 reps on Incline Dumbbell Press and 100 lbsx2 for 12 reps on Dumbbell Bench Press (flat). I also did something like 3 or 5 reps with 425 lbs on Bent Barbell Rows using a wide overhand grip (wrist straps) with my body at about a 45 degree angle. Meanwhile, I was doing Smith Machine Squats with 400 lbs, although I think back then I was stopping just shy of parallel.

What is the different effect in how you angle your body in barbell rows? I try to go close to parallell to the floor cause it seems more like the opposite of the flat bench press that way. But i could do more not bending down so far...what do you think?

Higher angle = shorter ROM. Also, the bar touches low on your belly, not to your chest. Rows done to to the chest shift emphasis more to middle traps and rear delts. Rows done to the belly shift emphasis more to lats and lower traps.

Ok got it...I think i'll switch to more like a 45 deg angle since it hits the lats more.

Ended up getting 310x3 for the deadlift, really felt like i couldve done a 4th but figured id just be safe and stop, not too bad for only deadlifting regularly for less than 2 months

I just started deadlifting again after a few months break, so I'm going pretty light for now. Hope to build back up to my old PR (set in October) and beyond within the next few months.

Yesterday morning I got 8 reps at 215 lbs on Incline Barbell Press. Next week I'm going heavy, and hoping to set a new PR.

Did my first serious DLing today...

1s 5r 265lbs, but I treated each rep as a single, completely resting the weight on the ground in between each rep (though I tried to limit my rests to under 4 seconds).

Also a new 3RM for squatting:
2s 3r 280lbs.

Hopefully my bench will follow suit in a couple days...

Matt I think a post like that is better suited to a journal than this thread...
