    December 3, 2021: 16" Box Squat - SS Yoke Bar
    245 pounds x 1 rep / Failed 2nd rep

    The bar is a Texas Deadlift Bar. https://texaspowerbars.com/products/texas-deadlift-bar
    I got a blemished one that was cheaper than the standard price.

    Glad you're enjoying it. Gotcha on the Yoke Bar. Didn't realize the Titan has chrome sleeves. That's definitely a check mark on their side. I'm sure I'll be perfectly happy with the Elitefts bar...

    Oh nice! That's a totally new movement to me. Can't listen to the audio while I'm at work, but I assume it's primarily for the upper back?

    I just got an SS Yoke Bar from Elitefts - haven't even...

    What exactly is a 'Snatch grip high pull'? A deadlift? A pullup?

    Crushing it like always I see.
    That's a good amount of volume to get through in 70 minutes. :)

    For sure! I'm a little younger at 47, but I think once you're past you're late 20's/early 30's you realize that the functioning of the body is far more important than the form. Strength and...

    Makes sense. Thanks for the advice!
    Just got my new deadlift bar yesterday, so I'll give that a try next time I deadlift. Not sure if that will change things or not. Either way, I need to determine...

    Yeah, totally get that. Even though it felt fully locked out, I thought the same when I watched the video footage of it. I tweaked my back pretty good at one point on the lockout of some speed pulls,...

    I hear you on that, and someone else suggested the same thing to me previously (both of you are much more experienced than I am). It was intentional. I've been struggling to get my weight back...

    Yeah, feels like over 400 is very close. The first (successful) attempt was at 385, tying my PR. The second (failed) attempt was at 395. Even though it didn't move, I could feel it was very close to...

    Both look good to me Eli. Didn't you just max out at 8 reps at 315 a few weeks ago? And now you did 335 for 2 sets of 8? Nice! (I may be misremembering though...)

    November 30, 2021: Sumo Deadlift
    385 pounds x 1 rep
    395 x Fail
    Thought I was going to PR today, but ended up just equaling it. I very well may have hit a new high if I'd just gone for 390 instead...

    185 pounds x 1 reps

    I mean, I think you answered this yourself. You're not prioritizing it. If you honestly have other things that are higher priority, then maybe you just shouldn't be worrying about it right now? ...
