Today I decided to work in with Weech and do some deadlifts using the farmer walk handles. He worked up to a huge 900x1 for a PR and I did 800x1 for a PR also. Something popped in my neck/shoulder area on my last set and it's bothering me alittle, hopefully it will go away soon.

You can pull more because the handles are off to the sides, so you use more leg drive. I'm sure i'll see some carryover if I did them enough. But I wouldn't expect a lot.

I wish my gym had palm trees. When we open our garage door all I see is a old trailer park.
