    Week 6 workout 2 Wendsday
    deadlift set 4: 360x5
    Set 4 overhead press: 175x5
    set 3 and 4 squat: 265x5
    assistance work: seated calf raises, pull ups 3x10, upright rows, and sit ups.
    on the overhead press it’s heavy so I do what could be considered “cheating” by bouncing/using whole body to get weight up instead of standing completely still, otherwise I would not be able to lift that heavy of weight. I feel I would increase weight a lot less slowly if I did not do this bounce and I would most definitely have to decrease weight, is it better to stand completely still and lower the weight lifted and just use upper body to lift weight or continue using my whole body and that “bounce” to get the weight up? Input from experienced lifters would be apprecciated, when I watch powerlifters clean and press they do the same jump/bounce to get the weight up over there heads.

    I think a little "English" is fine as long as it's not ridiculous.
