Letting the weight drop quickly when bench pressing will only end up hurting yourself in the long run. I'm not saying to do it excessively slow (Although there are firm believers in HIT), a controlled equal up and down movement will be your best bet. Also switching from thumb over and thumb (suicide grip) will really affect the area trained when benching.
Thanks man. Ill make sure to do this.

I work my biceps on my back day with heavy deadlifts and chinups, I'm not that firm of a believer in accessory work like abs/arms etc (done plenty of those types exercises in the past however)

I alternate dips / pushups for tricep work, in combination with bench movements.

Essentially my entire workout routine consists of the following movements:

bench press
incline bench press
pushups / dips
back squat
romanian deadlift
standing calf raises
overhead press
deadlift
pendlay rows
chinups

efficient & simple imo

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

So I did glights rep scheme... Refresher.

Deadlifts

135 x 5
185 x 4
225 x 3
275 x 3
295 x 2 x 5 sets (hope this is what you meant)
225 x 5 x 5

I was able to do it with relative ease (only struggled on final set and rep of 295)

225 felt so light it was like I could whip it around

Da ****... Is it the shoes?

Clearly I suck at higher reps!

That's interesting. It can't be the shoes. It would only make your pull further from the floor
I refuse to wear shoes when deadlifting or squatting.
Good sets though
I'm more of a set of 12 guy when it comes to Deadlifting, but with my throat the way it is anymore. I lose my breath very easily.
I think if you start doing some sets closer to the 10-12 range, your strength will go up exponantially for a bit.

Does your guy have a dead platform? Do you ever use it? I finally tried it the other day and kinda liked the fact the weight never slaps the ground. I think it might require more endurance too.

You may be onto something here. Majority of my DL sets are in the 10 range (..or very close to it) except for my one or two heavy sets; I usually go for 50+ reps per compound movement on any given day (...50 power cleans whipped my ass the other day). My rep scheme/frequency helped me pack on more than 225 lbs. to my DL in a span of 2-3 months.

P.S. I'm curious. How/why does you're throat affect your breathing?

I have tumors on my vocal chords that severely affect my breathing and speaking ability. I sound like I've been smoking and yelling for 50+ years now.

Ah okay! Sorry to hear man. Is surgery not worth the risk?

Thanks man. I'm learning to live with it. I've had surgery 6 times and it is awful. But I met my deductible early this year with hernia surgery so I may be trying again

Does the gear cause any complications with it?

At any rate. Certain test supplements can help with making my voice deeper as the tumors are largely at the top of my cords. But creatine messes with it bad
