Stick with Simple:
Please stop asking about rack pulls, speed sets, board presses, waves, etc... You need to be pressing, squatting, and deadlifting at the least (a power clean here and there wouldn't hurt either). Sorry to say, I know you want to hit a PR on everything but you are not an advanced lifter. I’m not an advanced lifter and I have been doing it since I was 15 years old. So you want a higher deadlift? Well here's a thought, try deadlifting more. You want a stronger upper body, then why aren’t you bench pressing? It’s not functional? What exactly about having a stronger upper body is not functional? Too many people want to get too fancy and complex with their training, when in reality its best to just keep it simple. Simple does not equal easy. In fact quite the opposite, simple is really hard. Then again, this is probably the biggest reason why people don’t keep it simple.
