I did my ME lower day yesterday, and my butt is freaking sore.
I have a few more questions though.
1.) Im pretty sure im more of an elastic person. What i mean, is that i do better at speed, and even with a high percentage of my max, the bar still moves relatively fast. So should my DE work be on the higher end like yo mentioned, maybe 80%.
2.) I was wondering if there is any benefit to some isometric pulls from the floor. Maybe I can work a few of these before my DE lifts, or in between each DE set?
Speed is simply moving the bar fast. if you can move 80%fast then you can use it. Basically the dl needs to be done in under 1 second to be a speed dl.
You need to work on your weakness with assistance work. What you mentioned are good things but may or may not address what you need to work on.
My wag guess would be as anewbie you just need ot get stronger and stay basic in your workout.
Thanks for the advice guys. I did my first “max” on deadlifts yesterday, and got 335 for 3 reps. My goal as of now is 400 for 3 reps. Im thinking of doing deads for two weeks, and then rack pulls for 2 weeks, and then sumo for 2 weeks. Thanks again.[/quote]
