5 weeks out, Day 2, AM deadlifts, PM squats

My morning deadlift session started out slowly but I was able to get into a groove and got in some good technique work.  I find snatch grip deadlifts extremely challenging even with weights that are only about 60% of my conventional deadlift 1 RM.  After snatch grip deadlifts, finishing up with some conventional grip deadlifts feels like doing a rack pull because my torso is much more upright.  So far it's been a good combination for 'light day' deadlifts.

My evening 'heavy' squat session felt really good.  The bar moved fast and the work sets this week were easier than they were two weeks ago when I first started with this loading progression.


Snatch grip deadlifts:  225x5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x5, 365x5, 365x5

Deadlifts:  415x3, 415x3, 415x3

Barbell shrugs:  275x8x3 sets


Squats:  135x5, 135x5, 225x5, low bar, 225x5, add belt, 295x3, 345x3, add wrist wraps, 385x3, 425x3, 425x3, 425x3, 405x3, 405x3, 405x3

Weighted back extensions:  65x10, 65x10

Hoist crunch machine:  90x10, 90x8, 80x8
