    Deadlift Training - Week 1

    *liniment
    *stretching

    Conv Deadlift
    154x10
    264x3
    374x3
    440x3
    straps up/belt on
    484x3
    528x2

    8'' Block Pulls
    double OH w/ straps
    550x3 - brutal
    600x3 - even more brutal
    550x3 - straps off / mixed grip = gift lol

    Leg Press
    4x10-15

    Seated Low Row
    Stackx10 left hand
    Stackx10 right hand
    Stackx10 both hands
    done straight after each other x3 rounds

    Kneeling Abs
    4x15

    My nose then exploded for a nice messy ending. I would say it was just from having a headcold all last week.

    Notes: Nice start. On watching the videos back I can see that I was really cutting my lockouts short for the initial reps on both the conv pulls and the block pulls. I will keep this in mind and really finish each rep.

    Weird one with the straps lol. 550 felt like a toy with mixed grip and strapless but with double overhand and straps on the 550 and 600 felt like buses.

    I think its great. It protected my shoulders a lot and its always nice to overload. The groove is way closer to raw than shirted though. It definitley does not load like a shirt would at least for me anyway. Its definitely fun to use. Easy on, easy off. I am sure as the weeks go on I will have more to report. That was only my second ever time using one and the first one I used was way too big. Yeah, a Q&A would be a great idea.

    Thanks B. I would say get one for sure. They are just another tool though they protect your shoulders brilliantly. Really easy to get the hang of.
