    Could be from something that happened before like a hairline fracture and the stress just fucked him up. For your DLs, are you doing sets of doubles? If so, good call :) Singles and doubles can get you pretty strong, most people don't give them the credit they deserve.

    Complete collapse on the first down portion of the first rep. He was a strong guy and presumably MilPressed heavy often. His spotter was there for the last reps, he wasn't maxing.

    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

    You ever pick up Iron Rock Steel, Justa's book? He's got one of the best programs for singles out there.

    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.
