Thanks guys

Yes, MS has been an awesome program

Beginning Thoughts:
I decided to just nail this day. Box Squats, Pull-ups, Deadlifts and Broad Jump. After today I am done with MS.
Workout:
Box Squats
- 345 lbs x 1 rep

Deadlifts
- 355 lbs x 1 rep - pretty hard
- 365 lbs x 1 rep - hard
- 385 lbs x FAIL x 3 attempts

Pull-ups
- +10 lbs x 3 reps
- +15 lbs x 3 reps

Broad Jump
- 6'3
- 6'6
- 6'7
Videos:
Box Squat and Pull-ups:
Overall Impression:
So today was sort of saddening and yet pleasing. Here are my overall gains from MS compared to 4 months ago.

Code:
                            4 Months Ago                        Maximum Strength
Body Weight               175 lbs                                  195 lbs
Deadlift                      365 lbs                                  365 lbs
Box Squat                   315 lbs                                  345 lbs
Military Press               160 lbs                                   175 lbs
Pull-up 3RM                 +25 lbs                                   +15 lbs
Broad Jump                   6'5                                             6'7
Since my DL showed no improvement, I am going to work on getting the bar off the floor. Doing all those rack deadlifts with 365 lbs didn't help much when I couldn't even clean the bar off the floor. I will be doing Deficit Deadlifts and Snatch Grip Deadlifts from now on.

My next program is 90% finalized. I will be posting it when I fully confident that this is what I am going to be doing.

As for the rest of this week: I am just gonna do some random work. I will be doing some light(er) lower body work and more aggressive upper body work.

I hope everyone has a good week

Nice work. I feel that unless I'm adding chains or something to rack pulls, it's doesn't help me beyond teaching me how to strain more when I go back to another form of deadlift.

Thanks a lot for dropping by, DH

I know what you mean...I did rack pulls with 350+ for multiple sets of 5 over 4 weeks, I even did Snatch Grip Deads with 275 for 5's....

I would actually invest in some bands. Chains I don't think I can afford or find the place to store right now. But I saw the monster mini's at EFS are cheap. I just don't know what band I should get.

What would you suggest, D?

What plan? Just box Squats for today? I was gonna do that but then I thought perhaps what you said might work for me might actually work for me and I did deads too. I did hit 365 again. And then I failed at 385. I couldn't get it off the floor. Other than that I had increases in everything, E.

Deadlift: 0 lbs increase
Box Squat: 30 lbs increase
Military Press: 15 lbs increase
Broad Jump: 2 inch increase
Pull-up (with BW included): 10 lbs increase
Body Weight: 20 lbs increase

What do you suggest I do, sir? Take some time off and try Deadlifts again on Wednesday?

I would try DLs again on another day that you haven't done squats first. I think you've got 385lbs in the bag.
