Hi, I posted a thread about sumo Dl and got some pretty good replies. I switched to blocks for 3 weeks now.
Basically last week I pulled 1703, today I did 1652(pics) and failed 182.5 twice, both hook and with straps. I could feel my lower back itching to round and knew the only way I’d get it up was to round. I really want that Double BW dead, 192kg. I’d be happy if I got it from low blocks. Should I lower the blocks a little? What exercises could I do to increase the Dl?
I’m running boring but big, so day is Dl 5/3/1 and FS 510, day two is FS 5/3/1 and snatch RDl 510. Abs both days. I thought of doing core work every day I lift, to increase core strength.
Mobility- 30min to one hour every single day. I take it very seriously. It seems that I round my back slightly and I can usually fee slight discomfort in the lumbar region.
I’m open to any tips and critiques. The DL is my fave lift and I hate failing at it. I’m legit considering switching to Trap bar DL and maxing out on it as it’s more forgiving. Thoughts? Thanks for the help.
