I didn’t feel like doing snatch grip deads yesterday, so instead I tried pulling against bands for the first time ever. I used my “stiff” bar and pulled against 2 of the red EliteFTS mini bands. I have no idea how much tension they were adding, but the top set was pretty difficult. Not a max set and it moved well, but it “felt” pretty tough. Though this could just be because I pulled a fucking GUTTED triple with 505 two days before and my lower back was still really sore and the erectors kept threatening to lock up on me lol. I don’t think I updated my log after Thursday’s DL session, but I’ll link the instagram post. Anyway, yesterday was solid. I went up to 410x5 against the bands, then I moved onto my light high bar ass to grass squats where I knocked out a 5x5 with 275lbs, and then I rounded out the day with a farmer’s walk finisher where I loaded up the implements to 200lbs each, charted out a path of 20yds total, and did as many trips as I could up and back in 10 minutes. I ended up with 6 trips in exactly 10 minutes, or 120 total yards covered with 400lbs of weight. Not too bad for a first time. That was a fun new challenge. I feel pretty good today!
