(NOTE: THIS IS NOT A FORM CHECK VIDEO) First and foremost, this session was after I had already trained that day, did a ton of upper back work earlier, worked a shift and I worked up to it in around 10 minutes or so. Anyway, I pulled 500 for 5 last night and I’ve heard a couple of people who are “concerned” about my back health, even though in the video next to it you can see I’m not that bent over with 455.
I do not pull this drastically bent over all the time mind you, but still, I felt fine and it felt like an easy set given the day and how much and long it was leading up to it. I am aware my chin is tucked and raising it will raise my chest, along with the other cues to keep it up.
I was just curious how you guys who pull rounded over feel about this in particular and start a little drama with the flat back enthusiasts I see everywhere.
