Here is big, Mike Otero, hitting 865 in training not meet legal BUT a huge PR--on his way to 9! He was struggling to nail 600 in 2010, we have worked together 5 years and recently by really bring up his upper back strength--all his lifts have really come up--he doubled 530 on bench, a few years ago 405 was a struggle.
Here is BJ Whitehead hitting a Bench PR this past weekend, I believe the key improvements in training were: dips instead of close grips or boards on his bench accessory day, for squats, it was the safety bar squats. For deads we have a little technical work but he will have PR in May!

Occlusion training arms 8 minutes--reverse curl, dbell bicep curls, dips, incline dbell ext (giant set)
Ronnie Coleman Rear Delt Machine (5 minute cluster, do 3 reps rest 15 seconds) still able to do these heavy and I know these hypertrophy clusters have helped me with recent muscle gains
