Lovely PB there mate. DL's looked very smooth.

 
Cheers mate, they feel so much better than they ever have done.  Getting more form less and all that.

Thanks mate, need to keep my lats a lot tighter and brace harder but they are getting better.  Should be looking at a new max once I get those 2 issue sorted.  Ideally I want to be hitting 230 x 5 with paused deficits first.

Do you prefer to pre exhaust hams before deadlifting or do you count the nordics as warm ups? They look pretty intense to me!

I don't give my hams enough attention so the Nordics are about activation and balance. Trying to do them with high frequency. I'm doing the version that focuses on hip extension which is easier than the full knee flexion version. I find them reasonably easy tbh and the more I do them the easier they are. My aim it to hit double figures with regularity. Don't think I'll progress these with or bands, just aim for reps.

Glad you think so. Can't wait to max but I need to be patient and let the grunt work do it's job.

As said on IG mate, very nice dead/pin pressing. They look to move well even if they felt tough! Starting strength will really benefit from them mate no doubt.

Thanks guys, Triceps are killing me today.  I see this as a good sign.

Feeling beat up today so just did squats
 
Dead Squat

120kg x 5 reps --Back it off considerably and still couldn't do the least set.  #WeakSauce
 
Really tried to focus on tidy reps and good form.  Happy with how these turned out but wow they were hard.  I think these will giver some nice results as the form feel so much better, just needs to be drilled in.

Dead squats look brutal. I used to do Anderson squats quite regular, which is similar in a way that you start from the bottom on pins. I should do them again actually.
 
Nice work as always.

Found a solid weakness here bud...build these up and watch the squat soar! Probably help speed of the floor with deads too.

It's basically the same idea but with the advantage of getting a good position first. The position at least needs to be similar to have good carry over. This is where I've gone wrong in the past. It's not just about building start strength but about form and position.

Glad they looked hard because they were. The idea is the same as dead bench, unload the muscles at the bottom, then build the power from nothing. The aim is to increase start strength and negate the stretch reflex. Get better at these and I will be stronger in the hole.

It's great isn't it. Love it when I find a weakness, means I can hammer it and get stronger. I'm good for about 230 any day of the week on regular squats but my form gets a bit shoddy. I'm really trying to stay tight and keep my back angle constant so I'm using legs and hips rather than lower back power. Glutes (especially the medius) were screaming. Not sure I've had this leave of hip engagement before.

Deads are starting to feel stronger from the floor as it is and any help is welcome. VMO's are still sore from deads, not sure what to make of that. Does it highlight an area I need to hit harder or is this a technique flaw as it indicates a lot of quad activity?

VMO’s still being tender and quad activity when deadlifting. Wouldn’t really worry about it too much right now

You’ve just switched movements from trap bar to Barbell, you did deficits, with a pause and you did some front squats before. Probably a combination of all of these slight change ups. If it persists it may be an issue

Lifting ridiculous weights outside in the freezing cold you remind me of my old mate TONY 

Did he do it while wearing his daughters headphones?

LOL I don't think he did,if wearing your daughters headphones gives you lifts like that I won't some.....how much and do you take PayPal?

 
Lol, performance enhancing headphones, do you think they'll end up on the banned list?  Does this means I've gone to the dark side?

LOL yeah it comes under PEDs (performance enhancing daughters stuff) 
 
Shifting some serious weight about mate awesome going
