this new routine i am doing includes more compound exercises - some, like deadlifts and stiff legged dealifting which i have never previously done. a few questions for you more experienced guys. in the sldl u want a lot of the focus on your hams. u do this by pushing through your heels. i have forced myself to use my heels more by putting my toes on a 25 lb plate which worked pretty well. Any better suggestions for this?
additionally, i did dls yesterday using the rack. this worked out pretty well. i am really trying to focus on form rather than weight initially. ill get to the weight eventually. i was surprised to do 185 relatively effortlessly. i have no back pain today - yay. do u want to push through the heels with this exercise too?
