I think it's solid. The partial box squats are easiest for me so pairing them with heavier deadlifts makes sense.
Deficit deads...believe it or not I did these for 2.5 years running without knowing it. My plates are from Wal-mart and 1.5 inches short of diameter. I am thinking about something LTL and I talked about...sumo deficits.
I received very strong carryover last year from sumos to conventional. I think perhaps if I did deficits it might make sense to perform sumos.
I also feel I need to add in weight situps and side bends. These take me 5 minutes max, but when I don't perform them my squat eccentrics suffer.
Also, I seem to benefit from power shrugs, so on partial day I might add in a couple sets at the end.
Now, rows...they have helped my lockout strength. I would probably keep them a part of my pressing days, with perhaps a press, row, press, scheme. Thoughts?
