    Default Should I do RDLs?

    Hi guys,
    Im a novice running LP for 8 months now. My last 3x5 sets were at:

    Squat: 317
    Bench: 256
    Press: 182
    DL: 395(1x5)

    You can see all of these in my form check post.

    My question is: is it appropriate for me to add RDL in place of back extensions? I cant add any more weight to the extension higher than a 45lb plate. I did RDLs yesterday with 135 and i think i got the form correct(felt the stretch in my hamstrings and bounced off it while maintaining an extended lower back), although the weight was a little light for 3x10.

    Then power clean is your light pulling day. RDLs are pointless at your level of training advancement.
