    AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH... didn't realize the pause was intentional. Now I have research to do, as I'm much stronger at lockout than off the floor.

    Looks fine, but:

    1) WTF are you doing right after breaking off the floor? Looks like a good way to pull a muscle, esp. with the rounded back you noted.

    Depends on how much you care about upping your DL. You'll get higher numbers if you do it on back day, but leg workout will suffer. You'll get lower numbers if you do it in leg day.
