Let’s go get it.

warmup: rumble roller on the IT bands, adductors, piriformis

High Bar Squats (oly shoes, SBDs, 2-3 min rest)

140 x 5 narrowstance
175 x 5
*belt on*
210 x 5 reg stance
225 x 5
260 x 5
295 x 5

notes: starting to fold a bit forward on the last few sets, but kept correcting it

Deadlifts (sock feet, 2-3 min rest)

145 x 5 hook grip
180 x 5
*belt on*
220 x 5 double overhand
235 x 5 mixed grip
275 x 5
310 x 8

Back was feeling good, so I moved on to some Rack Pulls. Wanted to feel heavy weight in my hands. Lock out has not often been my failing point, but I wanted some practice.

Rack Pulls (belt on, 2 min rest, mixed grip, rack set at knee level)

405 x 3
455 x 3
495 x 2
545 x 1
585 x FAIL

notes: Grip was what failed, of course. Most people use straps for these… but frankly, I am not used to using straps, and they feel awkward to me. So grip will hold me back on this, but that just means I have to bring my grip up.
