I don’t think I need deadlifts this cycle.

Not with 3×8 Safety Squat Bar good mornings, I don’t. I moved right along tonight. It’s a welcome change to actually feel a pump during training.

SSB good morning 150×8, 200x2x8 superset with

knee raises 15x2x8, 20×8  (75 sec rest)

45° incline dumbbell press 80×8, 85x2x8 superset with

high incline bent over row 60×8, 65×8, 70×8 (75 sec rest)

barbell skull crusher 115x3x8 (75 sec rest)

standing reverse curl 75x2x15 superset with

dumbbell shrug 100×25, 145×15 (120 sec rest)

I stretched out real well tonight. I’m not sure Nenad appreciated me asking him to help push me knee down while I stretched my TFL. (tensor fascia latae, Google it). Then I used bands and stretched out my shoulders. Chad Waterbury says I should be able to touch my fingers behind my back (one arm over, one arm under), so I’ve been working on it.

I’m digging these shorter rest periods, I think they’re going to do me some good. Hopefully I’ll be able to put on some size and improve my conditioning for this next meet.
