    Yea, the extra ROM length turns the greens ugly fast at the knees then up to l/o.

    That's when you take the green jumpstretch bands, attach them to the floor, and put them over the bar. The weight is lighter at the bottom and extremely heavy at the top. Green bands are very stout.

    You are doing a fantastic job "winging it"! I'm having the same mind issue - just can't get my head into my workouts either.

    Light day and moved pretty fast thru everything to keep the HR up some.
    Ungodly humid in the gym however, so the rep work just ate me up quick. Could not drink enough and almost shaky at the end.

    Nice job keeping in shape. 135 lb squats for 42 reps in a humid gym would have killed my passion for it. Good to see you pushed through.

    #545x2x2 (woo hooo right in the thicket)
    #425x5x3 about 75% for today, so somewhere to perhaps start again!?

    2" def RDL's to floor #315 x10x2

    Clse Stance Oly squats #225x10x2

    Low Cable Rows #150 x20,pause... 12...,10...,8...,=50
    #175 x20 pause 10...,6...4...,=40 after this W/O, my back is thick and juicy



    Missed some heavy pulling. Prolly should have eased in a little more, but oh well. As my dad used to say, Don't do as I do. Do as I say. hmmmmm
    Certainly noticed the month of somewhat dallying has lowered my work capacity/fitness level some as I had the strength but was getting winded by the rep work.

    In the near future!? No, not really.

    Wednesday 8/20
    15" Pin Pulls #475 x3x3 (pretty quick & easy really)

    Drop #50
    2" Deficit Pulls #425 x3x3
    (same here and they seem easier "not" making them speed pulls with a ton of force, just squeezing them off the floor)

    2" RDL's #315 x10
    SLDL's #315 x10x2
    (deliberately rounded my back with control of course)

    Squats #225 x8x3

    Bent Rows #180 x12x3

    Hypers BW x15x2



    Want to get back to some kind of continuity with progression and a set routine.
    15" pin pulls with abt 70%-75% of my max there, then drop #50 and do the 3 sets 3 from 2" deficit.

    In between weeks, I may add in accommodating bands and or chains thru out for singles. I really feel the greens (especially) did a good bit for my strength up over the knees and the L/O feels more secure. We'll see!?!?
    Moved at a half decent clip, to get my fitness level up some more too.

    Glad to see you lifting with a goal in mind. You know if you competed that you would win deadlifting hands down! Are there deadlift only competitions?
