    pin pull..

    http://www.elitefts.com/documents/magic_pin_pull.htm

    get in a safety rack, lower the safety bars to just below knee level, or wherever your dead has problems, and pull.. its basically the upper portion of the deadlift.

    push press is sorta like a standing military press, start with the weight on your clavicle/shoulder area, and with a bend of the knees, power your whole body up, pressing the weight as you do so. lock out, then slowly lower. repeat.

    my dead lift could use some work do I do pin pulls the same day as I do dead lifts? on my back/bi day?

    and push press looks like it could help add some strenght/mass to my shoulders

    You can do them in place of deadlifts if you want. Or pull off the floor and then do rack pulls for like 3-4 set of 3-5 reps afterwards

    Do them in place of.. I switch off. 2 weeks of pinpulls, then I deadlift for a week.. you'll be surprised at how much they work your back and how much strength you gain on your deadlift.

    remember though, pinpulls wont do shit if you arent strong enough to get the weight off the floor.

    my dead lift is really weak right now I can pull 205 x 1 with proper form.

    Ive only been working out for 2 months though so... I'm trying to bump the #s up. I can squat 205 x 5 no problem though

    work with lighter weight right now.. 205x1.. so do 5 sets or so of 165x5 and dont give up. increase the weight by 5 lbs every week, your numbers will go up in no time. just watch your form.

    ok thank you. one more question. My bench press is another exercise that I am really not making the gains I want to be making. Should I be doing 3 sets of 10 or 4 sets of 5 to get stronger? For my chest/tris day I do 4 x 5 flat bench bb, 3 x 8 decline bb, then 3 x 8 dips. for my 2nd chest/tri day of the week I do 4 x 5 flat bench bb, 3 x 8 incline bb, then 3 x 8 dips. and each week i switch off from barbell to db. then i have skull crushers for tris in there both days.

    wow, not the comment I was expecting to see.

    I kinda did my own reading around and comparing tons of different routines and I wanted to put together my own routine that hit almost every major muscle group. Ive gone from 125 to 145 in 2 months thus far. My target weight is 190 which means I would need to add 45 more pounds of muscle. I am 5'10.

    I am trying to stay as low body fat as i can this entire time and I have a pretty clean diet. NO fast foods, sodas, sugar. I basicaly do whey protein shakes 2-4 times a day, eat lots of protein bars, meat, chicken, rice, bread, peanut butter, almonds, pasta, etc.

    supplements:

    two x fish oil in the morning, two x fish oil at night
    gnc sports mens vitamin
    creakick 5 g / day
    ON whey protein

    45 lbs of muscle is gonna take a while, but this isnt a fast thing.

    quit that creackic shit, just get some mono or cee.

    drink a lot of water and keep up the good work - dont be afraid to put a little fat on.
