    It sounds like you got rid of a lot of relatively useless weight (read: fat) while maintaining great general physical preparedness.

    For someone your height, I'd consider that pretty freakin' wide!



    Excellent advice. Exactly on par with what I wanted to say.

    I agree.

    @mjanitch I think he means something like ME Lower (MON), ME Upper (TUE), DE Lower (THU), and DE Upper (SAT).

    I think training ME for all three workouts in your training week will wear...

    Hamstring shortness, although possible, is unlikely.

    It's more likely that your hamstrings are being stretched after already being in a lengthened position. It's hard to put into words without...

    I don't think stiffness in the front of his hips limit the arch at all. That stiffness drives the back into extension, which is pretty much all that arching is.

    I wouldn't train all three in one day too often at all. As jtteg_x said, upper/lower split is the way to go.
