    Nice job on the SLDL. I never tried those yet. I started doing just the regular deadlifts about a year ago. How much more have you been feeling them in your hams, glutes and back versus the regular ones? I may try the SLDL this year.

    Thanks. Well, I used to do them with completely straight legs and I never felt them at all in any place other than my lower back/ spinal erectors, but when I started bending my knees I started feeling them more in the hamstrings and glutes. I bend and unbend my knees alot though, so I don't know if they are true SLDL, but whatever. I have a hard time ever really feeling anything in my hamstrings though, except for glute ham raise, but I guess I feel the SLDL more than anything else. Today I didn't really feel them too much in my hams. I think it was because the weight was just a little too heavy that I let my back do most of the work, but that's just a hunch. As far as how they compare to regular deadlifts, it's hard to really know if they are hitting any part harder than any other part. I take them over deadlifts for reps because it's easier to keep in good form.

    I was sick and on antibiotics.

    Box Squats:
    95 x 5
    135 x 5
    155 x 5
    175 x 5
    195 x 5
    205 x 3

    That's all I did today. I just need to get back in the swing of things, but I also went indoor rock climbing, which I hope will bring up my lagging grip. It's tough.

    Thanks. I did not think I was going to be able to get five. 205 seemed heavy, even 155 seemed heavy, and I thought I was going out on a limb putting those other 45's on there, but that's the way it seems to be with squats, everything seems heavy.

    Great squats Noah. Keep it up with the non-smoking too. I gave up daily binge drinking/borderline alcoholism for about a year and a half now and feel great. It is hard as hell kicking a habit like smoking or alcoholism but keep it up as it is worth it!

    I started taking lexapro yesterday. Hopefully it won't have any effect on my lifting.

    Yeah, I switched to full body, and I'm trying to cut fat now. I started rock climbing, and since I'm doing that alot, a split routine takes up too many days, so I'm doing full body 1-2 a week.

    This isn't my first workout since my last post; I skipped making a post for a few:

    Front Squats:
    165 x 8, 7, 6

    Good Mornings:
    165 x 8, 8, 8

    Pull Ups:
    8, 7, 6

    Bench Press:
    145 x 8, 6, 5

    Leg Raise:
    10 x 8, 7, 6

    Lateral Raise:
    12.5 x 12, 12
