    ME Lower
    Average Reverse Band Squats (Narrow Stance, belt only, 6 year old bands) - 1RM - stopped at 620
    Sumo Stance Cambered Bar GMs - 3 x 8 - 225 with arched back
    Hip Thrusts - 3 x 8 with pause at top - 300
    Slow Eccentric Glute Hams - 3 x 8 BW
    Decline Abs - 2 x 8 - 25 plate behind head

    Going to bring my sumo stance in to engage my quads off the floor more. Need to work on glute and hip extension (hip thrusts twice a week) and erector muscles in sumo stance (high bar GMs). These three things should help me pull through my sticking point and utilize my leverages better (short arms short torso). I notice Marc Bartley and Brian Siders, lifters with similar leverages, pull this way.
