    Its about dominance


    I've started a youtube channel where I am going to try to document pieces of my workout and when I work with clients. I'm going to try to record novel movements, but sprinting is always fun. I need to work on my arm drive, specifically, keeping them tight and the elbows flexed to 90 throughout the whole sprint:

    Quite possibly the best exercise (that most people don't do!) for developing a large, thick back and powerful hamstrings is the snatch grip deadlift. It is also one of the more "functional" two-foot barbell exercises.



    Go get some!

    Decided today to go for a 1 RM on the SG DL. No straps, 405 went up fast!

    This is embarassing, and also damn ulgy. Here is my 425 fail. I think I could have hit 415 pretty easily, and maybe even this if I went 375, 405, 425 instead of doing 6-8 1 rep warmups moving up by 10-20 pounds each time.

    Aw man, you had that last deadlift. What happened to your glutes? Did you drop them off somewhere and forget to put them on for that last set?

    Either way, good stuff here, Zir. Funny enough, I did a rack pull variation of these last night. It was fun, but it was quite a shock to me after not having done them for a while.

    I'm in on this Zir Red.

    I'm partial to all of these exercises being a former collegiate football player. Now that I moved on to being a competitive Olympic lifter, I'm a big fan of snatch grip deads. It definitely helps with getting in the perfect power position for the snatch.

    Have you ever tried doing those knee jumps onto a box? We always used to have competitions to see who get the highest.

    I have a love-hate relationship with SG deads. They smoke the entire upper back and the leverage is against you, but they are extremely tiring.

    I hear you on this. However, they are a great exercise for Oly lifters. They help with keeping your upper back flexed and arched, so you aren't rounding on your second pull in the snatch.

    Actually, I think my grip started to fail on that last set. I was using the hook grip, and my thumbs are a blistered mess now. With straps, no problem...but straps are for - eh..pointless.

    I've done them half kneeling to improve the start of a sprint. I'll have to try from a double kneel.

    The best is when your finger nail rips from the nail bed. I usually tape my thumbs when I hook grip. But now, the tips of my thumbs are dead anyway.

    Yes, we would start with our butt on the back of our heels. For a small exercise, the competition would get pretty intense.

    I think that almost happened to me the other day when pulling for a max. I ended up dislocating my thumb instead, so I saved the nail

    Today was a hodge-podge of training. Did 10 x 10 yard starts, then hamstrings and over head presses. Worked up to 185 pounds for 6 on single leg RDL's, here is 175 for 8.

    Sub'd. Gotta go back and watch the vids when I get a chance.

    Edit: just watched them. Some nice work man. Some not so normal variations of things to put into rotation.

    Did some strogman work on Saturday. Set a record for the gym in the mens under 200 pound class for the 50 foot farmers walk: 320 in each hand. The lift off the ground is absolutely ugly!

    Some great places to train back at my old home in connecticut. The above videos were from Lightning Fitness. Thursday we went down to Just Performance Fitness to do some more strong man training. Below is the atlas stones. This was my first run through, and I get my time down to 17 seconds by the final attempt. Rocks went 215, 185, 135, 95.

    Worked up to a number of triples today on the parallel box pause-explode squat. Did 5 x 3 @ 335 lbs. Then some good mornings, and finished off with dumbbell RFE split squats (3x10 @ 70 lb dumbbells) and supine psoas marches with a light ankle band. Here was one of today's mobility exercsies that I was able to record:

    I'm getting over bronchitis and did some heavy presses before hand. Last year at this time I hit 252 for 3, but it was only parallel depth, not full depth. My goal is get to 275 for a single by this summer.

    Jason,

    How do I fight the barbell from traveling forward in the overhead squat? This problem kills my snatch, as I can get most weight over my head, but I can't keep it back far enough to stand up with it. Obviously, the first problem is shoulder flexibility. In the catch position, I try to flex my upper lats as hard as possible to pull the barbell back, but I still lose the bar in front of me.
