The FPDL single @8 looked like @7 at the most. How do you find SS's 5-pt deadlift setup (assumption based on your vids). I always find shins to bar is the hardest to maintain (vs dropping hips).

I'm always a bit more conservative on RPEs with assistance stuff to make sure there is no form break down. Plus it looked easier than it felt. I find the SS 5 pt setup pretty good, gets me in pretty much the right pulling position. I find the benefit is more psychological though, as it means I have a consistent repeatable process from a consistent repeatable position. Almost like a pre shot routine in golf.

basically protocol is; Day 1 Comp Squat Comp Bench Bench Acc Day 2 Comp Deadlift Secondary Bench Squat Acc Day 3 Secondary Squat Secondary Bench Bench Acc Day 4 Secondary Deadlift Bench Acc Deadlift Acc Intensity and volume varies from week to week, with a general trend of decreasing volume and increasing intensity and first set is usually always [email protected] Feeling pretty beat up to be honest, and not sure I fully agree with all the bench volume and lack of back/pulling movements although my e1rm are all trending up, especially my bench so sticking with it to the end of the project pretty much as perscribed. Plus Mike Tuscherer seems like he knows what he's talking about coaches a lot of high level lifters. What program if any are you following at the moment?

My own. Last year I added 20kg to my deadlift and 30kg to squat in about 2 months. Squat was far behind due to neglect and left knee surgery, deadlift went from 280kg to 300kg. I'm tinkering this year, trying to find what I can handle with the 60-80min training time I have before work during the week. It's likely 4x deads, 2x squats, OHP work and back work. Throwing everything in; paused work, bands, different grips, stances, LBBS, HBBS, front squats ... the lot. Should have something to write down soon.
