Leg Swings and Stretching.
Paused Squats - 60kg/8 reps
Sumo Deadlifts - 160kg/1 rep.
at this time I put on my suit and the fun begins
Sumo Deadlifts (Titan Deadlift Suit NXG) - 160kg/1 rep, 200kg/1 rep, 240kg/1 rep, 255kg/1 rep.
Conventional Deadlifts (no suit) - 4 sets/4 reps/160kg.
I believe that with a more agressive suit I would have pulled over 600lbs today. There are several things I need to work on as far as technique goes.
- Reach down for the bar and don't bend over.
- Engage the lats more.
- Push knees out and sit back into the pull.
- Keep head and shoulders upright and behind the bar.
