Guyssss! Off topic but what does this work that the regular lowbar squat doesn't work?
Nothing. His grip implies really bad shoulder mobility, and the use of the hip belt and the benches implies that he has very poor lumbar strength. That might not be the case at all, but that's the only reason I can think of for this kind of silliness.
Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 4, week 4 (Deload), Workout A
Deload week, so pretty easy. I did make the big switch from machine to bench press this week. I also started playing with drop sets on the dumbbell incline presses. Finally, I tried a couple of other things with bands and hex presses on the dumbbells.
Bastardized 5/3/1 cycle 4, week 4 (Deload), Workout B
Workout B of de-load week, so pretty easy. Finished in an hour.
I did make the big switch from machine to bench press this week earlier this week and figured this week would also be a good job time to introduce “straight bar dead lifts” into my routine. I really like the trap bar dead lifts, so I will add the straight bar dead lifts as an assistance exercise and decide in future whether to switch it to primary and make the trap bar secondary. At this point I’m doing wide grip dead lifts -- and started really light since it is new for me and it is "de-load" week.
BBS big 5. Improved on TUL or weight for all 5 exercises over last week.
