You're next Elite. We're getting this stuff figured out buddy!

Thanks, Al! Good feeling to know dead certain a lift is going up soon. Been stalled on deadlifts long enough! 500 or bust, here we go.

Thanks, OMP. I will be steadily setting up faster. I changed my cues a bit recently, so I have to do a little too much thinking right now, but as I get the pattern down, I will be speeding that up and I'm sure you're right, it will translate to a bigger pull.

ANother thing that's a huge bonus is deadlifts do not affect my low back at all anymore. It used to take me weeks to recover from 95% and above, because I was always stiff legging them when it got heavy. But that 365 was essentially 99% of my best ever dead and I could do it again tomorrow, no question.

I know I need to increase my frequency with deadlifts, and this means I will be able to do that without my low back holding me back as it has in the past.

Just a lot of win lately. I'm very excited for the rest of this year.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
