    I do normal warmups once I am into the classical lifts as well, i just do a variety of warmup movements before I even get to squatting..

    work for back, shoulders/chest, triceps, posterior chain, abs etc then i get onto the squatting or the benching with normal warmups

    Ah, I hear ya'. I do similar stuff. Dynamic movements and general, all-purpose warmups. Seems to work fine for me.
  3. I`m going to move my Wed. workout to Thurs. or Fri. and then move into deloading. I am fairly injury prone, even with extensive warming up so I have no problem quitting while I`m ahead and in this case, I`m well ahead in terms of mass gains even though that wasn`t my ultimate goal. I`ve already learned this lesson the hard way and a couple missed workouts certainly does beat the heck out of a 3 week layoff. I`ll come back to bench in deloading. Thanks very much for the input everyone.
  4. Savage,

    Thanks for the link although I don`t know that I have a cuff problem. I have accute pain at the top most portion of the acromium process. As I do front squats I think I may have caused a bruise on the bone itself. Whether or not that`s possible I don`t know but that`s what it feels like anyway.
    I think I`ll throw in some of those excercizes at the end of my workout just to be on the safe side.

    I also used to have knee pain but suprisingly I seem to respond quite well to A#$ to grass squats. I also do some knee rotations and hip rotations in addition to light warmups before lifting to get things lubed up so to speak before squatting. Hopefully, it`s just a bruise and nothing more. Appreciate the response.
