@bctx1981 Same here in regards to pull off floor. I heard many top lifters saying that deficirs strengthen lockout and blocks pulls help off the floor.
The logic is that you'll have less momentum and speed at lockout on a deficit, whereas Block pullls put you into a shitty position with good lockout. I'm too inexperienced to comment tbh. RDL'S are fantastic, I'm doing them 5*10 with a snatch grip right now.
@Mence97 Various hip mobility exercises. Pigeon pose, butterfly, lungee variations, deep squats, hamstring stretches, glute bridges and broomstick rdl/gm sets of 50 reps. Also trying to land a full side split. I worka desk job and do everything I can to avoid sitting. Thank you for the link. I'll check it and get back to you!
@chris_ottawa Yes, I agree. My shoulders are too far in front of the bar. Somehow I know that my back isn't completely straight yet even off blocks I end up sometimes pulling from a shit position. One thing I notice is that I felt the brunt of the load on my core, which I guess means I need to strengthen it.
I want to do the following:
Sumo Dl off blocks 5/3/1
Paused conv. DL 50-55% 3*3 with 2-4 sec pause
Front squat 5/3/1
No other lifts that compress the spine asides from OHP. Would it be overkill? I think it's reasonable and would hammer my weak points.
