MAX EFFORT LOWER

Alternating sets of empty bar squats and 60kg's deadlifts. 3 x 10 on each to get the blood flowing.

Conventional Deadlifts. Double overhand grip.
100kg's x 5
100kg's x 3
130kg's x 2
160kg's x 1 matched PB from last year as warm-up, looking good
170kg's x 1 with belt and mixed grip PB and bar moving quickly
180kg's x 1 4pps PB this was the aim for today. Video didn't happen though so may as well put more weight on
190kg's x 1 all time conventional PB


Shrugs
220kg's x 10
260kg's x 5 PB
260kg's x 6 PB

1.25 Squats
90kg's for 2 sets of 10

First time doing heavy conventionals for about a year. Form still needs a bit of work: I think my hips need to come lower but I find them so uncomfortable when I'm at the bottom. Just like I'm all crowded. I've read a fair bit about the benefits of training both stances though so I'll continue to work on it.

I haven't done shrugs in a while so I made up for it by putting on a lot of weight. 6pps felt like it was going to pull my arms off. AWESOME. Didn't want to do the 1.25 squats so I knew I had to. Extra 10kg's and got it done.

Great session today. Feeling strong at the moment.
