    wbb 1.1 questions

    so, im in week for of wbb 1.1, the problems i think i have is that i believe i am not doing as much chest as i should in it, i used to bench 2-3 times a week, now only once, so im wondering if i can add some bench into fridays workout??? Also maybe i can add more squats to thursdays workout??? what do you guys thinK? Another thing is that when ive been deadlifting, i sort of bend more at the hips/knees and come down, and not the back, i dont know if that works my legs more or what? anyone? THank you.

    Initiate lowering the bar by bending at the hips first.

    You shouldn't need more than one day for your chest.

    question about wbb 1.1. i start week 5 next. it says 10-12 reps of 75%ish, i dont know if i can do that, so is it more important i follow their reps plans, or more important i get the proper weight on and just do as many reps as i can? thanks.

    so more about weight and 10-12 reps right, than the % of 1 rep max that it says..

    Leave the routine as is.

    Deadlift form:

    At the starting position the bar should be against your legs, over the balls of your feet, and directly under your scapula. Whatever position this is with a straight back is the proper starting position for you to deadlift, regardless of how much or how little your knees and/or hips bend.

    Stick with the rep scheme and adjust the % down.
