Thanks Man! Hopefully as the weight goes up and the form breaks down you guys can help me identify some problems.

Default 6/13/13 Deads

Did sumo's for the first time as recommended to me by some of you guys. I didn't really put a lot of time into reading about form and technique. So I will continue to do so for the next few weeks.

Sumo Deadlifts
225x3,275x3,315x0,295x3

Squats (Reps)
140x8,160x8,180x8

RDL
140x13x3

BB Shrug 190x10x3

OVerall Workout Grade: B

Notes:
Sumos felt good overall. I think I need to spend more time working on the technique, but I like them. Felt easier for me to get into position. I am looking forward to seeing what I can do with them.

The rest of the session was pretty staight forward assistance work.

I am messing with the camera angles on sumo. So be patient.
Sumo 275x3


Sumo 295x3


Squats 160x8


Squats 180x8

Keep doing the rep work on the squats and you will progress. They looked pretty good to me Big J. I am progressing slowly on mine as I build back up hoping that I will be able to keep my form to a high standard.

On the deads, I suggest, and its only a suggestion, that you stay tight & taut in between reps. I find I am able to retain my form consistently throughout the set that way. I am glad you have a good first impression with Sumo tho!
