    thanks :big grin:

    i keep forgetting to video, though it was dark out so you wouldnt have been able to see shit.

    and deadlifting in flipflops is the key, i think. :mamoru:

    i started hitting the lats and rear delts hard (never really worked the lats that much)

    lots of max effort benching
    started doing overhead work
    started doing rotator cuff work for the first time

    Oddly enough, I always have any 2 of squat, deadlift and bench go up with the last lagging...after a month or two the lift that isn't improving starts to go up while one of the others begins to lag behind.

    Did you "touch and go" on the deadlift or completely set it down for every rep?

    focus on your overhead as much as your bench.
