    Ok Deadlift night so again nothing special here. Just me trying to learn form, and suit. Trying to make switch from conv. to sumo.
    sumo dead
    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    405x1
    445x1
    505x1
    suit on
    585x0 missed at top. Tone suggested go light work on form and speed.
    495x1x8 sets.
    really focused on setup, getting to the bar, and holding my breathe.
    All things I didn' do conv.

    sldl 60lb dbs. 4x10
    leg curls 3x12
    Called it a night. Going to have to wait and see how pull goes these next 4 weeks. Was considering Jan 30 meet, but if pull sucks might have to wait longer.
