      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.

            "5/3/1 programmed exercises (Deload week):"

            • Squats - Pyramid 5x100 5x120 5x145 5x120 5x100
            • Bench press - Pyramid 5x115 5x135 5x155 5x135 10x115
            • Hammer rows 3x95 3x115 3x140

            Assistance exercises

            • Dumbbell incline press drop sets 10x50/10x35 10x50/10x35 10x50/10x35

              Every single bit of that "exercise" is just calculated to scream "LOOK AT ME!" without being effective. It's the same as a dude just throwing dumbbells up in curls, with awful form, while screaming.

                        • 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.

                          "5/3/1 programmed exercises (Deload week):"

                          • Overhead press 5x85 5x100 2x115 5x10x65
                          • Hammer pull-downs 5x165 5x190 5x215
                          • Trap bar dead lift - pyramid 5x185 5x225 5x255 5x225 5x185

                          Assistance exercises

                          • RDL 10x135
                          • Trap bar shrugs 2x10x185
                          • Snatch grip (wide grip) dead lift 5x10x135
