    I'm very scared of max attempts on deadlifts or even DL'ing heavy--so many people seem to hurt their backs and I don't have all that much faith in my form. I'm impressed you went right back to lifting.
    first a question. Do you even want to do a max pull? If so, how will overcome your fear? If you don't have faith in your form, what will you do to get the required faith to trust it?

    Well, **** lady, your FS form is pretty much on point, so that's a keeper and a point in your hat!

    As for your deadlifts, just have to pull back like Wade was saying. It's an odd concept but you'll get it. You're literally on the verge.

    You're stiff-legging this weight, which means that if you can keep your hips down you'll probably fly off the platform when you pull it. As for the heart thing, I find trying to do a valsalva breath helps, a lot.

    Don't listen to your head.

    Too funny, I was going back through recent posts because you know EXACTLY what Wade said LOL I was like "Did Wade post it here too?" Maybe it is more obvious than I thought. I have to go through and find the vid of my last PR. I already knew keeping my hips down was my issue, I just didn't realize it had gotten out of hand enough to cause pain.

    My brain has been and still is the issue in much of my life.

    Well, Wade says 100 reps, and that ain't happening on the ab wheel. Also, I haven't been able to the ab wheel since I tweaked my back

    sometimes it's just an appropach

    Let's look at bench

    Set of lats, go do 10 reps of abs
    set of side raises, 10 reps of abs

    By the time assistance is done, abs are done

    When I get done with BP natls, I have to become my on client on Aplyft. So, the workouts you guys are doing, I will do as well as other stuff. So, we are about to find out if I still have it to do it. So, my sessoins for PL will lok similar but, I'll have SM and throwing events throughout the week and weekend and oly twice weekly.

    I should start doing this, instead of 4 x 25. Such a pain to do.

    LOL I love that movie. You always have the best gifs.

    As for abs... I've honestly really like getting back to old-school stuff like toe touches and reverse crunches and decline crunches. OH! And stir-the-pots on a ball.

    I'm so glad others find the ab wheel super challenging. Because ... holy heck.

    That's a good approach. A breaking it up between workouts/sets would feel less tedious than doing 100 reps of ab work in one go.

    I usually try to superset the assistance overall (shrugs and curls, lats and rear delts) and then save abs for home to cut my gym time a bit shorter, but then again I slack at abs anyway so maybe this would be better

    Oh hell no! Last summer when I was better about abs in general I had worked up to 10 reps, but only did like 2 sets and filled in with other stuff. Before my back I was only like 5 reps and now I won't even try.

    Yeah, I can't even do a full rep on the wheel. It's basically a plank/crunch on my knees

    Strangely, it's my shoulder that says "oh hell naw" to the ab wheel. I'm mega-impressed anytime I see someone using it successfully.

    True things are true, lol. I've been trying to do better with it too the past few months, it does help a lot to breathe properly.

    Yay! Working out after an injury really messes with ya for a bit, always that period of worrying before you trust things again. Squats had my head all fluffed up after messing up my knee, but it passes.

    Probably a good call to stop early on the SLDLs. Like... they SAY go hard or go home, or "you never regret a workout," but I've definitely regretted workouts that got me hurt and took me away from the gym. Glad you didn't reinjure yourself!

    THIS, so many minor injuries because I push through. It's a mind-fuk sometimes though because if I stopped every single time something didn't feel 100% I would never get anything done, it's hard to tell at times what's serious.

    Congrats on the matched squat PR!!! I thought they looked really solid. Even if you want more depth - pretty speedy there.

    Sorry to hear about the back issues.
