Thanks for cool tips guys, I’d definitely look into issues with hamstrings, prolly throw some RDLs in as I really like that exercises anyway and chill and just workout for the time being. I might come back with more videos in a few more weeks when I think the form is right.[/quote]
In addition to what you’re doing? RDL’s are a pretty big movement and require a lot of recovery. You might be able to handle it, but if you find yourself dragging, you might find your better off just adding GHRs and different types of hamstring curls (standing cable, lying machine, sitting machine, swiss ball, bw with a bench and hanging onto a bar, etc), or cable/band pull throughs. I can’t really tell you it will or won’t work for sure though. [/quote] I didn’t realize it was that demanding since Mark Rippetoe put it in his Assistance exercises section. I did it last week with 180 pounds which is 20 pounds lighter than my normal 1x5 deadlift and my hams and knees hurt for like 3 days There are a few iso machines for hamstrings at my gym I’ll do some research and get on it. Thanks man.
My actual workout looks like this these days:
Monday: Squat 3x5x210, Bench: 3x5x190 pounds, Hyperextension: 3x8x45pounds, Chin: 24reps
Wednesday: Deadlift 1x5x240, Press: 3x5x100, Row: 3x5x135 and Weighted dips: 3x5x45
Friday: Squat, Bench, Hyper and Pullups
So I pretty much do hyperextensions 2x a week. Would you advise a Saturday workout where I can get 3 more assistance exercises done like: 1x5 RDL, 3x5 Leg curl, 3x5 Cable rows, BB Curls?
