    Yeah just keep looking and reading.. would be nice if we all had local stores that carried powerlifting products for us to go and try... like a dicks or dunhams for PLers.

    Did/does dead or squatting bother your AC joint. I am more and more convinced this is what is wrong with me. I want it to heal but don't want to put off pulling/squatting, but don't wana make it worse and have wasted all the deload time I just spent. Might go see the PT here at school next week just to get an eval done and figure out what it is/treatment. Nice thing about being direct access is I can skip the doctor and just find out what's wrong.

    Deadlifting doesn't wasnt/isn't an issue at all. At the worst of my discomfort, getting the mobility to get under the squat bar was an issue. Loosening up my pecs with the lax ball solved that problem. You may need to inch your grip out a tad depending on how close you are. I've adapted a false grip since then as well.

    That's kinda what I was thinking/hoping. But just wanted to check since you obviously have experience. I think that getting under the bar will be annoying for sure. Thanks boss.

    It's not even painful for me, really. Like I can think of many things more painful, It's just like a dull ache... when it's warmed up I don't even feel anything. When I sleep or lay still/sit still it doesn't feel anything. Just when I'm moving around or super internally rotate.

    I am probably going to do the same, it looks like a great movie and the book was one of the better books I've ever read.

    Conventional block pull should be awesome for your lockout, buddy. I was thinking of suggesting to the girl in my crew to do sumo from the floor and block pulls both sumo and conventional and put deficits on the back burner. She has all kinds of speed off the floor, not enough hips yet, used to have a narrow sumo stance, and her back rounds.

    I agree. Conventional off blocks has always been difficult for me, even when I pulled exclusively conventional. The bands just topped it off.

    Sumo is easy until it gets hard. If that makes sense lol Up until ~80-85% it's easy, after that you can't **** up. Keep it up though man. Maybe it's what suits you best. Who knows!

    Yeah I'm good. Just following the template percentages for today (for the most part). Normally on deadlift days, I divert from it and add more. This week I'm staying within my ranges to be able to recovery easier seeing as I'll have increased frequency of lower body this week. The assistance work was more for hypertrophy purposes, and again, not kill myself so I can squat Thurs and pull Sun.

    As far as shoes, I really like my Adidas, but if you have wide feet I've heard they may feel a lil too tight. I have small lady feet so it works for me

    I think my convo is a little better than my sumo...

    I think I might be the only one who doesn't sumo at all actually. I sumo once every 6 months or so. LOL.

    Just tried sumo the first time a few days ago. Is it normal to feel it 90+% in your glutes and hams?
