Pulls - Heavy (Sort Of)

25 July 2013

Deadlift 135x10, 225x6, 315x4, 385x2, 420x3

Felt okay, as okay as deadlift reps over 1 can ever feel. Did a few sumo reps up until 315.

I don't think this Texas Method deadlifting template is working out that well for me, I might go back to the old 'bastardized Gillingham' program I used with a lot of success last year, but then I might have to give up squatting 2x/week... to be determined.

Snatch-grip DL 335 x 3, 345 x 3 - strapped. Liking this exercise. If I could get this enthusiastic about actual deadlifts, it would be great.

Bent-over row (strict) 135x10, 155x2sx10

Glute-ham raise x7, x6, x6

Hanging leg raises x10, x10, x8 (tried to touch bar with feet on as many reps as possible.

Face pulls 3s x 20

Snatch Grip DLs are the bomb. I always feel like a superhero after I do them. Why not make this your main DL?

Interesting that you say this, since I've been thinking the same thing, but I don't think I'm ready to give up on conventional pulls just yet.
