Watch those trap bar deadlifts...its a great way to injure yourself as the balance gets really wonky with that thing...I personally won't do them
Valid point but I have no problems with them

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

As I sit here and reflect on my current progress while drinking a couple beers, I remembered I used to have a log here haha. I'm back on 5/3/1, doing it a little differently than I did last time, and not skipping deloads. I hit a rep PR today on the deadlift of 445 lbs for 8 reps, all dead stop, no touch n go. Last week I pulled 420 for 13. I only do dead stop now, in the past a lot of it was touch n go.

Conventional Deadlift
200x5
245x5
295x3
345x3
395x3
445x8

Pause Deadlift
3x3 with 370

High Bar Back Squat
5x10 with 190

Ab Rollouts/Gymnastic Ring Dips
12 rollouts, 8 dips
x4

I've also made some progress on squats too. Recent rep PRs include 315x14, 325x10, 345x9. I have made the incline bench press my exclusive horizontal press as I've had some shoulder issues unrelated to lifting, and the the incline does not aggravate my shoulder like the flat bench does now. I am on the mend though, and should be back to flat in a month or two. I hit 295 on incline for an easy single and am after 315+.

I should also add that this year's goal is to hit a 600 lb deadlift. It will happen.
