    Deadlift

    Rack Pull (1" below knee)
    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    365x3
    385x3
    405x3
    425x1

    Deadlift
    3x5x225
    *Working on new form

    Shrugs
    405x20
    405x20
    405x15

    Curls
    3x10

    Decided to switch to rack pulls for a while. They felt great. I'm changing my deadlift form to fit my body type better. I have such a long torso that its impossible for me to bend over without rounding my back, so I'm now grabbing the bar and squatting down, then roll the bar to my shins and pull. My back stays straight, I feel tight, and much more powerful. I will continue working this form with light weights until I swith back from rack pulls to deadlifts.

    Good deal on the rack pulls, that movement is more natural than the deads for some lifters, depending on body structure. Seeing you make continuous strides is great man.

    ^^^ Thanks man. Yeah I started making my best progress when I stopped counting calories. Now I just make sure I stuff myself everyday with good wholesome foods (lots of steaks, whole rotissere chickens, burgers, tacos, tons of eggs, peanut butter, fruits, veggies, mass gainer shakes, and about a gallon of milk a day). My diet is kind of dirty, but I completely stay away from sweets. Don't even want to eat them anymore. I crave man food lol.

    I like the shrugs after the deadlifts. If you have to do shrugs, that's the time to do them. Wise choice.
