As mentioned in another thread I started questioning why I power clean after reading a Q&A at DeFranco's site. I got my thoughts confirmed (thanks for the replies) and have excluded the power clean from my training for the time being.

C4 W2 D4
Deadlift
3*105
3*120
14*135 kg

My grip is the weakest link, had to switch to a mixed grip on the 11th rep. Stopped on the 14th so I wouldn't aggravate my back.

Assistance
* Kroc Rows, 1*40, 24 kg
* Farmers Walk, 3*max

* [L-Sit], 5*15 seconds

awesome results.

Have you always done front squats on your 5-3-1?

I'm thinking about taking the bench out due to my shoulder and replacing it w/ front squats....what do you think?

Thanks! Yes, I've front squatted since the beginning of the program; due to a disc problem in my lower back I'm not comfortable back squatting yet.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder. However, I wouldn't replace the bench with front squats. Instead I would add them as an assistance exercise to the back squat, in order not to overdo lower body work.

Luckily I don't have any experience training around a shoulder injury and my knowledge is limited. I would ask around and get some solid advice from the senior members. In your log it seems as KB presses don't aggravate your injury. Could you try strengthening your shoulders and then start incorporating close-grip bench presses with low weights before adding them to your 5/3/1? Or have you completely ruled out all BP?
