    Thanks Hayden. I havent done them in awhile, but oly lifting can help with PLing, especially explosiveness for pulling, where I need some help. Ive heard of guys using Oly lifting in their training consistantly with good results, so I may add them in to just change it up and keep things interesting.

    oly stuff is fun IMO.

    have you ever tried hip snatches? I find they carry over to my deadlift better than regular power snatches because there's more glute/hip activation. With a hang or power snatch you get more hamstring & quad involvement. With the hip snatch, you're almost exclusively using your glutes/hips to push the bar forward and into triple extension. Here's a vid of my 225 hip snatch, but unfortunately, it's filmed from the front angle. If you search hip snatches on youtube I'm sure you can find a few from the side angle to see what I mean about the added glute/hip drive.

    Video


    Just a thought for you.

    ^^^ welcome guys

    ME SQ/DL
    Nothing to write about. Cant train with the crew this weekend, so went to do some solo stuff. Didnt feel all that well in the hips, and body felt run down.
    Was going to do 4inch block pulls. Worked up to 455x2 and felt very slow and weak, so cut it there for the day. Just nothing in me today.

    It's that time of the year B, it's just hard for us to get in and train. Great job though getting in and getting some work done. Have you tried any movements to target your glutes?

    Your probably gonna have to think like a bodybuilder, lol. If you do regular SLDL, try not to go down all the way. Yesterday when I did them, I stopped just below my knees and I made sure I was pushing my hips back. This was alot on my lower back but it hit my glutes pretty good. Also, try doing some walking lunges...especially with weight. Back raises, but use nothing but your glutes and hamstrings to raise your upper body by squeezing hard. And of course, doing some GHR, Reverse hypers, barbell hip thrusters, and different types of GM's.
