Tonight I worked up to 95% of my training max. Despite my form feeling like **** things went pretty well. Here is how is broke down:
Warm-ups: Dynamic stretching and PVC roller work
My form felt really off so instead of doing my 5 sets of 10 on the stiff legged deads I decided to pull a few singles to work on my form. I have decided that I need a new set up style to get my lower back arch to an acceptable point and to get my hips down more. I tried to pull like my one old training partner for the first few then switched to the Jim Wendler roll and pull style. I think that this will work for me I just need to take some time to get used to the timing.
Here is a sample of what I am trying to mimic:
Jim Wendler 585x7
Jim Wendler 600x5
Jim Wendler 625x3
Jim Wendler 710x1
Here is how the singles broke down:
315x1 Tried pulling like Todd my old training partner
315x1 Same as the first. Felt very unnatural and unexplosive.
315x1 The rest of these are done with the roll and pull style Wendler uses.
365x1 The first set at 365 was probably my best overall one of the night
At this point I was pretty fried and I felt I was reaching the point of diminishing returns. I am going to take some stills from the videos to compare the set-up and see if my mechanics are better. I would REALLY appreciate any input you guys have on my form on these sets. Thanks.
45 Degree Hypers:
AB Roller with feet elevated:
Once again any input on the form would be much appreciated. I am going to try to upload some pics that will help compare the starting position as well.
