I generally do sets of ones and twos as you said. Yesterday I did, 370x2, 385x1, 390x1, 390x1 and then 375x2. I do DL's every other week at the advice from a powerlifter I met a few weeks ago. The 2nd time I did 390 and then returned to standing after putting the weight down, I got this major head rush. Everything turned white. :-) Must be the steroids. :-P

Ahhh Gotcha, he must of just failed his attempt and brought it down to fast. That sounds a bit painful.

I finally got my own setup at home but do to a huge amount of home maintenance and remodelling that has piled on me all at once I have no time for a set ritual. I have however gotten better since my last my last post on this issue. Last time I tried it, I did about 7 reps at 180. Once I have a set workout set up an followed I should be at body weight in no time at all. :happy3:

This article will give you a pretty good rundown. It's good for advanced lifters, I'll switch off between 5x5 and singles whenever I change workouts. His book gets a lot more indepth about it, as well as awkward object lifting, fun ideas for strength training, and things ike that.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
