I think Paused would be similar but is more for a specific sticking point. I'm sure if I'm off someone with greater experience will chime in
    Well I do have rack pulls as well. As of now it was, deficit and rack block pulls as secondary lifts. You make a great point. I will mull it over more.

    I do have the block pulls in as well, definitely. I have to pull the slack out correctly and really get tight before the main pull, because my mobility seems to stop me from just being able to hang out in that position. I have to pull myself down to that position.

    Well of course, that's why the only lifts I am married to are the comp ones.

    Right now my deadlift is set up like this

    Deadlift main: comp pull
    Secondary: block pull/deficit(rotating)
    Supplemental: pendlay row(or row variant)

    In the intensity phase it would be

    Deadlift main: comp pull
    Supplemental: row variant
    Assistance: reverse hypers/GHR/hyper extensions(really just overall health stuff for the intensity phase to try to stay healthy

    Yea I don't think I am tight consistently enough in the lats. Especially as it gets heavier. Sometimes I look straight and sometimes I look a little round...which I want to avoid.


    Honestly could be a weakness or technique flaw

  8. From what I've seen (going off memory...) it's not so much that you rounded over too much, it's that you round during the lift itself

  9. Quote Originally Posted by liftandswim View Post

    Yea, that's why I am thinking the tightness is an issue. I noticed in the paused I can get that straightness, and I am sort of forced to in the paused deadlifts. Deficits on the other hand are not a weakness in my pull, and on top of that I have greatest chance of bad form due to extra needed mobility for starting position.

    Essentially why I am thinking of swapping the two. Now, to be clear though, the max effort squat is what tweaked my back this time, I'm just trying to get better, stronger, and be in better positions while doing it.

    Thanks for the input LnS

  10. Could just be that your lats are simply tight all around, which makes it harder to engage and hold position.

    I'll admit, mobilizing the lats is never in my deadlift warm up like it is on the other lifts. I'll try it out. Thanks man

  22. Nice benching rob, I always roll out the upper back and do a little T-spine work to get that all loose. I started hanging too, seems to help. Those are every workout things. Mobility takes me a while and sometimes I still don't get out what I put in, learning still though.

    -OHP my triceps were blasted still from slanger work so it felt like all shoulder today
    -deadlift, still a little sore, so didn't want to push it. This was my first time over 275 since my mock meet so definitely good stuff.

    Not at all a dumb question. A super simplistic look at the template of RTS intermediates is

    Day 1
    Lower
    Upper
    Upper

    Day 2
    Lower

    Day 3
