    Shrugs: 3x8
    Front squat: 3x8
    seated rows 3x10
    Hyperextensions 3x10


    day 3

    Hang clean 3x10
    incline bench 3x10
    Pushdowns 3x8
    close grip bench 3x10

    Where is the sticking point in both lifts? You can try rack pulls for the top portion of the lift. Or hack squats for the lower portion.
    I went to Rhodestown and all I got was this high cholesterol

    you need to find where you are weak in your lifts, and then i can help you more.
    2000 or bust

    What weight are you stuck at? How long have you been stuck? etc.

    My first instinct, though, would be to start doing good mornings.

    WHERE in the lift are you having trouble? For the deadlift is it off the ground or when you lock out?

    Your program sucks. Sorry to put it that way, but it's really bad. You do little to no back work or hamstring work. You should train the muscles you can't see twice as much as the ones you can see.

    There is noi balance to anything. If you push, you need to pull in every plane.

    Bench - Rows
    Shoulder Press - Pull-ups
    Squats - Deadlifts

    There has to be balance and you're doing way too much pushing and not even close to enough pulling.

    I think you need to focus on upping your caloric intake. If you add some body weight you will see those lifts shoot up. Trust me on this one.

    If you don't supplement you should give strong consideration to our Maximum Mass Stack. It will be of tremendous help plus you get free access to our guide which provides some template routines, tells you how to use the supps, and tells you how to eat for mass. Well worth it.
