    Depends. If your form breaks down with stop n go's, then reset each attempt. Often times people begin to round their backs and shoot their hips up too soon if they don't reset.

    Ok so ill attempt touch n go next dead sesh n if form starts to break just reset. But most likely my form breaks early. Even on dead stops.. Not sure if u seen the last dead session vid I posted..form wasnt top notch but then again my back was feeling like shyt too. So I might have to lower 1rm next cycle depending how this next one goes.

    That's true.. Some people bounce it hard core. But I've seen some kid that like to bounce the weight but his 1rm is stupid heavy.. He likes to bounce 495 for a few reps but next thing u know he stacked another 2 plates and some on there n hit it for 1 rep. Strong mother fcker man lol stupid form but still impressive

    Always reset. It's called the deadlift for a reason.

    Very good point ace. I just saw a vid of wendler doing them touch n go n I just wondered if that's how he wanted people to do this routine. I know I could get a few more reps in with touch n go with the stored elastic energy and maybe the slight bounce hah.. But yea the main point of the lift is the initial pull from a dead stop

    I'm actually stronger with a dead stop. You'll be able to reload your hamstrings and the bar, and re-acquire overall tightness, thus having a better executed lift.

    Yea I see where ur getting at... Plus you can reinforce form.. I think my problem is as I do my initial pull, I lose tightness on next pulls.. I probably don't reload the Hams as u mentioned. Do you suggest just standing upright to reset if I have too??

    Whatever you gotta do. I'll set the weight down, retorque grip, raise my hips and load them back down while simultaneously driving my hips into the bar, spreading my knees, pulling slack out, and pull

    Nice work on bench.. i dunno maybe you could try to get your elbows in a bit closer to your body. so the bar hits a tad bit lower.

    Funny u say that.. I use to bench super low/tucked in elbows.. To avoid some shoulder pains And my numbers just went down .. I could post a vid of how I use to bench to show u .. But ever since I flared them out again my numbers went back up. I know once I start benching heavier weights the flaring would prob cause some shoulder issues. So ill experiment on tucking on the negative and flaring on its way up

    Interesting that your shoulders don't bother you even at lower weight with the elbows that way. Congratz on the PR though.

    So, you mentioned lower back, tightness, and mobility....all of which gets trashed from sumo pulls. So I checked out your deadlift video again.

    With sumo, you need to try and keep your back as upright as possible. The lift should be executed with your legs/hips. The issue is, you really have to screw your feet in, shoot your knees out and externally rotate your hips in order to open them up so you can get your hips as close to the bar as possible. Hips Into the bar is what allows you to pull with somewhat of an upright torso. What I saw you do, is shoot your hips up to quickly, leaving you to pull the majority of the movement with your back. Kind of a pseudo sumo stance stiff legged deadlift.

    Your tight lumbar is coming from your gluteus Maximus and medius. Overly tight glutes will cause lower back pain. Hip flexors can play a roll in that as well.

    I literally just got done with a target point massage for those issues and all my problems have been resolved.

    Definitely need some work on the sumos.. I was going extra wide that day thinking it would help with a more upright torso but obviously didn't. I'm going to mess around with some foot placements once back feels better. And I'll try some lacrosse ball stuff on the glutes even tho i don't feel much tightness at all on my butt but its worth a shot since nothing can go wrong either way
