The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Just curious where I am on my pull and it looks to be about 30-35 lbs off. My best meet pull with a deadlift bar is 530 and I pulled roughly 500-510 with a normal power bar at that time I think. Looking at a meet in January as football season is wrapping up and I can start to focus more on training.

    Lower back has gotten extremely weak since I had to cut back on the training. Part of the reason I guess my pull has fallen off more than my squat has.

    I hear some people use an old tire and a rope and throw the weight on top of the tire. Not sure what makes the weight stay on but give it a shot and see what happens. Consistant sled work is the one thing I noticed that raised my pull quickiest.
