Strict press
185 x 3
205 x 3
232.5 x 0, 0
Was able to do 3 really easy partial reps but couldn't lock anything out. Maybe something to do with my healing shoulder.

175 x 9, 8, 8, 8
It dawned on me that instead of holding the last reps up over my head for several seconds to increase muscular stability, maybe I should do the opposite and NOT lock anything out, like...I can't believe I'm not joking about this reference for once, but like Ronnie Coleman used to advocate.

Lying dumbbell rows
115s x 10, 12
125s x 10, 10, 10

Curls and light RE pressing


  1. Non-locked out reps are awesome for assistance work. It keeps a lot of tension right where you want it, AND it pisses off people on youtube. First time I ran 5/3/1 BBB I did a lot of this, and it paid off really well.

  2. I was thinking about this for everything actually, since my shoulder didn't seem to want to extend fully on the main sets. But yeah, with you and Ronnie endorsing this I should do it for BBB at the very least.
