I found things like good mornings really helps and generally movements like SLDL and pull throughs really helped. To make the movement more comfortable, load the bar with only 135 and just 'feel' the lift through for many singles., this helped a bit
    Thanks man. For now, I'm going to do some speed pulls early in the week (maybe 10-15 reps, 1 every 30 seconds), and 1 heavy set on intensity day (probably start with 5 reps, maybe 3). I'm gonna rewatch/reread a lot of videos/articles I've gone through lately, as I pretty much ignored the sumo parts lol.

    lol, ^^ this

    ermergerrrd man. and here it though sundays were for resting. that's an intense session!

    why, for safety? or you do you prefer sumo over conv in general?
    Thanks man. I'll have a better idea when I've been doing it for a bit and I'm near max effort, but so far I don't feel like my back is getting destroyed haha. My wife has been battling some major back problems over the past year, so a) I don't want to go through what she's had to go through, constantly in pain, not being able to do a lot of things, etc. and b) at least one of us needs to be able to take care of the little guy.

    You'd kick ass at sumo with your strength on squats. Sumo felt a bit easier for me than conventional for sure, but I haven't gone over yet.

    Thought he said 465. Guess that was his old pr.

    You honestly don't need any assistance. I've made it from 275x5 to 410x5(465x1) only stalling twice. Plan on pulling 500 at the end of December.You're doing a fairly narrow stance so you're hips shouldn't be too beat. I'd still stretch and do plenty of mobility work.

    Squats are strong and impressive. Could it be that you are just worn out for deads after squatting? After splitting them up and having two days between the two lifts I love it. Granted my deads are progressing and I had to reset my squat, but you cannot be a master of it all at the same time.

    Yeah that's what I'm hoping for.

    While pulling 500 by the end of the month would be sweet, I think I'm going to start lower and take my time working my way up there while I work on my form.

    Thanks man. Yeah I thought about that, and it's definitely not helping. Unfortunately though, I'm not ready to change up my programming to find out just yet.

    Texas Method Volume Day

    Barbell Squat:
    45 lb x 5 reps (+36 pts)
    115 lb x 5 reps (+57 pts)
    185 lb x 3 reps (+74 pts)
    255 lb x 2 reps (+100 pts)
    325 lb x 5 reps (+237 pts)
    325 lb x 5 reps (+237 pts)
    325 lb x 5 reps (+237 pts)
    325 lb x 5 reps (+237 pts)
    325 lb x 5 reps (+237 pts)

    Not hard, just exhausting. Whoever says they feel energized after exercising in the morning is not doing TM VD squats, especially on 3-4 hours of sleep.


    Pull-Up:
    5 reps (+75 pts)
    5 reps (+75 pts)
    5 reps (+75 pts)
    Threw these in between squat sets. I've really been slacking on pullups/chinups lately, loss in strength is really showing, though it's exaggerated by the increase in body weight.

    Alternate Hammer Dumbbell Curl:
    30 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    30 lb x 12 reps (+19 pts)
    My forearm has been acting up quite a bit lately, so I figured I would add these back in to strengthen them up.

    Dip Station Straight Leg Raise:
    12 reps (+5 pts)
    12 reps (+5 pts)
    12 reps (+5 pts)
    Abs are another thing I've really been slacking off on lately, need to get more consistent here. This will probably be my typical volume day going forward.

    Haha thanks. I notice a lot of people stop and look when I get over 3 plates. I think most of them are just trying to figure out what kind of weird exercise I'm doing with a bar on my back lol. It sounds crazy to me, but I definitely feel like I'm good for at least 425 now.

    Do squats feel more 'natural' to you, vs deadlifts?

    Sometimes i feel my body just has to literally do everything right with timing of working out/frequency/accessories/rest/diet just to gain 5lb on squat but with deadlifts i can literally just look at the bar and gain on my 1RM basically whenever i choose to

    I don't know how you squat that much, that heavy, that early in the morning. Sounds like hell.

    Yeah definitely, squatting feels a lot more natural. With deadlifts, it's a bit of a catch 22 for me. Deadlifts are best to build a strong lower back, but I can't deadlift well because my lower back is weak. I watch videos, read articles, learn some ways to improve my deadlifts, then I try to implement those new tips, and it's the same shit. No matter what I do, and even if my form doesn't look that bad, it feels like I'm trying to do a round back SLDL with my heavy deadlift weights. Like ddog mentioned, I think part of the issue is that by the time I'm deadlifting, my back is already fatigued from squats. A tired and weak back is not a good combo for heavy deadlifts. I will eventually change up my programming so that I'm not deadlifting after squatting, and I'll probably give conventional another shot then. But for now, I'm enjoying how nicely my squat is just getting stronger and stronger, so I'm not changing anything anytime soon. I think pulling sumo will play to my strengths a bit more as well.

    Sorry. You'll get there, just stick with it. Start doing TM and keep doing mobility work and stretching to keep those glute issues at bay. One day you will post something like that and be like wow, I remember when I just couldn't get past this weight and now it's easy peasy.

    Thanks man. I was actually doing to go for 405 after I hit my 365x5 the previous weekend, but I ran out of time at the gym. We'll see how this month goes. If everything goes well, I might just wait until I go for 455 in my race with BOB, hit 405 as my last warmup single

    Logs that make you feel like a pansy are the best ones. PG's is one of the first logs I started following because he started about where I started and had made ridiculous progress by the time I subbed. Yeah I feel weak when I see him bang out my 5RM for easy sets on his VD, but then I remember that it really wasn't that long ago that he was at these same weights I'm at now.

    It is hell. I don't know why I do this to myself, but it wasn't lights out until like 1:30am, my sleep was interrupted throughout the morning, and I was on my way to the gym at 5:30am.

    F**k that sh!t. I'm so much stronger in the evening when I've woken up and had several meals. At least you get a quiet gym at your time though.

    I do feel stronger under optimal conditions when I can wake up, eat a meal or two, then hit the gym like 2 hours later. During the week though, I sit at a computer for 9 hours, then in my car for another hour, which is not optimal for getting loose, so I think the difference is negligible. And that's ignoring the fact that I have a wife and son to get home to after work, don't want to delay that by another hour and a half and miss my window before he goes to bed. It would be so much easier if I had a squat rack at home.

    Yeah I've thought about adding them in, it's just a question of when. I had thought about alternating them with RDL's early in the week, but then I had decided to alternate RDL's and GM's instead. Would I be better off alternating RDL's and rack pulls or GM's and rack pulls?

    Would it make sense to completely omit the full deadlift and do rack pulls at higher volume instead, perhaps doing deads every fourth week? You could also add other stuff to build your back, like back extensions.

    Your legs are so far ahead that it seems a shame to train the whole movement when the bottom portion is doing nothing but training the movement pattern. Just putting it out there.

    That's something I've considered and may end up doing in the future, but for now, I'm going to give sumo a shot. I've been curious to see how it would suit me, and I'm hoping it takes me to 5 plates so I can check off the deadlift in my race with Woody.

    And I'm following RipCJ, who is just about repping out my intensity weight on his volume day. And I'm certain there is someone out there doing the same thing with RipCJ's weight. There will always be someone bigger and stronger, use it as a positive motivation, not a negative one

    If lower back strength is the problem then SLDLs are the answer. If you don't feel comfortable doing them, rack pulls are the next best thing. I've been doing basically a rack pull 5RM every other volume day....and it hasn't really helped a whole lot. I'm thinking of changing that to either a slightly heavier 3x3, or a much lighter 3x8. I'm replacing RDLs on alternating volume days with SLDLs.

    Awesome VD man. Both dudes in black and white shirts were mirin
    I'm not sure where I should start. Judging by how 315 felt, I think I'm going to jump to 335 this week, maybe do 1-2 more 20 lb jumps, then drop to 10 lb jumps judging by how it feels.

    RipCJ sweats 10w-30.

    Yeah maybe I'll alternate rack pulls and SLDL's. I like weighted extensions though too.

    I'll give those a shot. How did you come up with those numbers? Maybe a dumb question, but even if you pull sumo, you still do rack pulls conventional right?
