    Was gonna go for a heavy single deadlift but something was off. Did a few heavy single squats yesterday wear me out? Too soon (6 days) after my PR pull? Anyway, worked up to 445 sumo and that felt...

    No more meaningless than the number of calories per meal. If you track calories, the more accurate and consistent the better. Sure sometimes I'll estimate 490 calories for a 540 calorie snack, but I...

    3. Add Romanian deadlift on leg day or deadlift on leg or back day. Back day is light/high rep...

    I tried hook grip and couldn't even keep my thumb under. Hands too small and can only barely reach my thumb and no way it stays under. This with just the bar. I might try with the skinny pink barbell.

    Been doing 10x10 squats every 8 or 9 days for a couple months, took a bit of a deload and tested one rep max today. Wasn't expecting much having not done anything over 225 in a few months. 275 felt...

    For myself I estimate 400 per hour of gym time.
    Moderate aerobics can burn ~800 per hour.
    Slow jog 6 mph burns around 600 per hour.
    Your weights are light so maybe will burn less, but since you...

    Agree with above, it's important to have rear delts and lower traps and rhomboid work to counteract the push hunch. I like to keep external rotations in as well.

    Been only sleeping 8 hours a night the past several days. Last night set my alarm for 9 hours to get up at 8:30. Slept through my alarm and woke up at 11:30. Guess I needed rest.

    I personally do them for back flexion and set the pad high. I initially added them fairly often, at the end of days that I already worked lower back such as squat, deadlift, or barbell row days. So...

    Agree with this 100% and I had to figure this out for myself. I strained my back on a deadlift too heavy for my back. Then I started doing back extensions with spinal flexion - I had to start at zero...
