    Thanks sean. Always something to work on. It's like my form breaks down way before strength becomes a limiting factor. I realize you'll have that especially high rep deads but it's frustrating

    That's why AMRAP sets can suck sometimes. There's nothing wrong with shutting things down early, or at the minimal rep requirement.

    Love AMRAP for bench and press. Starting to dislike them for squat and dead. Luckily starting week 6 of the program, wendler calls for my TM to be done AMRAP, so the load is heavy enough so that AMRAP more than likely won't exceed 5 reps.

    yeah deads start to get rough no matter what weight after about 6-7 reps, form just breaks down.. but yeah force those shoulders down to activate the lats, that will help your upper.you'll kinda have to figure out for yourself whether you will lift with high hips or low hips, depends on your leverages.

    First of all very solid work. If you grip the **** out of the bar and use the bars weight to pull your ass down a little bit while getting very tight it can help tremendously with tightness and getting the back flat. Then comes the challenge of doing that for reps. I also like to "pop balloons in my arm pits" at the top to get that tight upper back.

    Cliffs
    -use the bar to pull your hips down a little bit
    -you can use various ques to get that tight feeling in your upper back

    Thanks for feedback guys. I was out of town for the weekend and didn't feel like updating the log. Saturday I hit up a pump session and Sunday was nothing but rest and relaxation. Volume squats and Bench 5's tonight!

    Thoughts:
    Played with some of the new cues on squat today. Definitely felt smoother, but, again, as the reps pile up (especially with shorter rest) things kinda go south. I felt solid though. Bench went well too. To be honest, the pump was what shut me down on my AMRAP set, weird. Need to up my thoracic mobility I think. I'm a heel down kinda guy, but i still should be able to get a little better arch. Leg drive is kiiiiiiinda there, but it, too, is a process.

    As always, let me know what you think! Stay strong AM.

    And yeah from the little I've seen, duffin is awesome

    So I hit up some weighted vest walking and mobility work. Feeling good right about now. Tomorrow is my birthday, thinking of hitting up two workouts like I did with squats last week. In the morning, hit a pr on deads and at night do my scheduled workout. I really think I have 4.5 plate (455lbs) in me. We'll see how I feel when I wake up.

    Week 3, Day 3

    **Workout #1**

    Deadlift
    440x1 (20lb PR, taped)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfg1aDEehMo

    Thoughts:
    Stoked about the birthday PR. As you'll see in the clip I cleaned up my set-up a bit. Still needs some work, but progress is progress. 455lbs was in the cards today, but I didn't feel like getting greedy. I never take stims and I took around 250mg of caffeine prior to this workout and it kept making me see stars. So I didn't feel like passing out with 455lbs in my hands (excuses, excuses I know...). 500 here I come!

    Gonna hit up some wings at lunch time to refeed for tonights scheduled workout haha. Feedback is always appreciated. Stay strong AM.

    Thoughts:
    Deadlifts were blah. That's to be expected after hitting that 20lb PR this morning. My AMRAP set on press was brutal, the last rep was an absolute GRINDERRR, but I locked it out for a split second. I hit 145x9 last week, so 140x10 is basically the same thing. I'll take it though. Problem was my grip was too wide (meaning I got no tuckage or loading of the lats). I noticed after the first rep and just said screw it. Rest of the workout was a breeze. Stay strong AM.

    Thoughts:
    Squats were decent. Would have liked a couple more reps, but everything was feeling heavy today. I have some funky end of summer cold. No excuses though. Technique was iffy too. Rushed my walkout because I was trying (key word, trying) to get pumped up for my AMRAP. Too, I tried keep tension throughout my descent, but I obviously have some work to do because it was noticeably slowing my descent. Oh well. 5 months ago I couldn't even hit 315 for a single, so to hit it for 5 reps on a bad day I can't complain.

    Rest of the workout was rushed (had to drop my last two exercises) because my gym was closing 30 minutes early. Lame.

    Always appreciate feedback. Stay Strong AM.

    Thanks rob. I think the gains have to slow down eventually, I'm trying to ride them out for as long as possible though!

    Think I figured out my slower descent (was air squatting in my room like a lame). I was cueing myself to pull myself down with my hip flexors instead of cueing myself to leg curl into the hole. Dunno guess we'll see.
