    Trap bar SLDL 135/5 160/3 195/5
    I thought I would do the BP for 3 reps for 3 sets when I only could get 2 reps on the first set I decided to drop the weight and do the next sets with 125.

    I was cleaning up some things in my garage and even though I felt sort of tired from my last WO I did some curls and DB cleans.
    EZ curl bar with blue thick grips
    50/5 60/5 70/5 75/ 3 3 3
    DB clean 50/5 5 5 L + RR
    Pretty weak on those cleans.
    I used to do that with 65 for 8 as a finisher years ago.Damn it feels like its cardio.

    Is it shoulder inflexibility that has kept you from a back squat with a straight bar?

    Yes, I realized it when I went to a SS squat camp 3 years ago. I really wasnt getting the bar low enough for the LB squat. The next day my right shoulder was in pain.I began using the safety squat bar. I didn't get the bar very low yesterday and it felt strange having the steel bar on my traps/shoulders after years using the padded bar. I'll give the straight bar a shot for a few weeks.

    At this stage in the game it really doesn't matter whether or not you squat low bar, just that you squat. Just like you I can't squat low bar. Heck even with high bar my wrists are flexed back all the way! I do keep my fingers on top of the bar so that no weight gets transferred to the elbows which can cause problems. For me even trying to get into the low bar position causes pain. In fact it took several months of stretching just to get into the high bar position.

    High bar can feel uncomfortable if you jump right in at the weight you were using for the safety bar squat. Try doing warm ups with high bar and work up over time. The traps and shoulders get used to it slowly as the weight increases. I also have to keep doing shoulder stretches to maintain the range of motion that I have or else it will slowly go away.

    Like your log. I also use a trap bar, and a safety squat bar at need.
    And thanks for the input.

    starting strength coach development program
    Friday 4/12/19
    Trap bar SLDL 135/5 160/3 195/5 5 8
    DB press one arm r/s 30/5
    Tried l/s only got 3 reps and it was tough.
    I can get at least 10 with right arm
    I never really noticed much weakness on left using straight bar when doing BP or barbell press.
    This sure got me thinking I have to make some changes to my workouts.
    Picked up 15lb dumbbell and got 15 reps 2x on each arm.
    Them did a set of thick hande DB curls 30/7
    Next wo I will do DB bp and see if I notice the Left side weakness.
