    I disagree with the claims that bench and deads don't overlap hardly any. I find that a good dead day leaves my lats, shoulders, traps, lower back, abs (rear obliques), and to an extent, my upper...

    I believe the only lifts our guys test on are bench, incline, clean (hang or floor, their choice), and (full) squat.

    SalahG, add TCU to that list of schools that don't do full cleans. Our guys do *occasionally* (read: very, very, very rarely), but it's generally hang cleans only.

    Ditto. I love seeing some little 150lber with 405 on the bar, barely bending their knees on a squat.

    As long as you're hitting the pulls hard on back day, I don't see why direct work is really necessary for bicep growth.

    Dizziness and nausea could possibly be related more to the spike in blood pressure you'd see while going all out lifting, than what you ate beforehand. Just my .02

    Dunno, but my max has been stuck for about 9 months. I've tried all those techniques, and I've put on 20lbs, 1/2" plus in the arms, and 1.5"+ in my chest, but my numbers refuse to go up. Same thing...

    Yeah, strength will come back very quickly, so be more concerned about the injury. Rest, ice, and anti-inflammatories are going to be your best bet, IMO. When you do start back to using it, be sure...

    I couldn't agree more, except for one little thing.

    Morbidly obese then.....:D


    I'm 5'10" and would eventually like to be 245 @ 7-9%, so IMO, it really all depends on your goals as for what would be ideal for you.

    I never really just exploded up in height like most people. I just gradually got taller, at about an inch per year, from the time I was 12 until I was 17ish.

    What are you doing deadlifts for in a college FOOTBALL offseason program? I'd think that would emphasize mostly explosive movements like bench, squat, and powerclean.

    Clicking or popping in the knee could be caused by (well, most commonly by) 2 things: chondromalacia and/or meniscus damage.

    BTW, I really don't train like a powerlifter, per se. I train with more of a bodybuilding program; I just like to move heavy ass weights, b/c I believe that works better for building size.
