Speed Squats / Deadlifts

My energy levels tonight were much higher than last week. Today's work out was more what I expect.

Warm Up - Stationary Bike - 6 minutes.
Speed Squats - warm up squats, 12 sets/2 reps/225lbs.
Speed Deadlifts (on 1.5 inch board) - 4 sets/2 reps/335lbs.
Seated Good Mornings - 4 sets/8 reps/225lbs.
Standing Good Mornings - 2 sets/6 reps/225lbs.
Lying Leg Raises - 5 sets/25 reps.

I find my belly gets in the way during the seated good mornings and I don't get the full range of motion. From now on I'll do good mornings standing. On the 1.5 inch board I was having trouble reaching the bar. Seems my hamstrings are very tight. From now on I'll do speed deadlifts on a board of some kind.
