Polish Weightlifting - 10 Part Series

Sun Aug 10 2014 04:33 PM Backoff sets in the deadlift by Ethan

As a lot of you guys know, my deadlift sucks bad. 355 was my last deadlift PR and 345 was my last squat PR.

I feel like I need to deadlift more often. My deadlift training goes in three waves:

Wave 1 is four weeks at 3x5
Wave 2 is four weeks at 3x3
Wave 3 is four weeks at 5x1 (usually I knock out as many of these reps as I can in one set then finish with the singles I have left.)

My squat training is the same except it goes 3x8, 3x5, 3x3. I dropped the reps on the deadlift to focus on technique.

My workouts look like this:

Monday:
Squat
Reverse lunge
Pull up

Wednesday
Bench press
Klokov press (right now)
Barbell row

Friday
Deadlift
Good Morning
Kroc Row

So to add more volume, how should I go about it? Backoff sets on the deadlift? An extra deadlift day?

Here's what I've come up with as far as options so far.

1) Backoff deadlift sets
2) Change the program to something like 5x5, 5x3, 10x1.
3) Use the squat template (don't like the sets of 8 but it won't kill me)
4) Run 2 deadlift days and 2 squat days per week (2 main lifts per session, squat+bench and probably deadlift+overhead) like a push-pull-squat layout.

Wed Jul 30 2014 06:18 PM Fascia in Modern Medicine by Marius

On the scientific side of things, the field of fascia research has grown considerably in recent years, though it lacks the coherence of other, more established areas of physiological investigation. For decades, anatomical dissections and representations have presented the body as stripped of its fascial tissues, and the majority of physiology textbooks make little mention of it. "Most scientists," says Wallace Sampson, alternative medicine skeptic and professor emeritus at Stanford University, "even those wary of alternative therapies, admit that the field of fascia research is a field of neglect, and remains sorely under-investigated."
