Welcome Mort. Thanks for the comments.
And thanks for the feedback / heads up on the order of the 2nd lifts. That makes sense - you’d break down the muscles in the same plane/movement more - for strength I guess you’d want to keep them more fresh so separate movements would be better.
In that case, what does Jim say about the other exercises? i.e. is it then better to do:
- ham curls or some more quad dominant like hack squat / split squat / goblet squat?
- Front squat
- ham curls or a quad dominant exercise?
I can see arguments for either option.
I think I will keep it as it is for now - I haven’t deadlifted properly in probably 12 months so I don’t want to overload my lower back doing deadlifts and SLDL on the same day just yet.
I’d like to find a way to incorporate behind the neck presses too - I started doing them this year and I think they are a great exercise. Any suggestions? Not heavy, just as one of the follow on assistance exercises.
