    I very much appreciated the video. I don't really have shoulder pain but then again I can't get them to work as well as they should. Maybe some variation of this would help me. Thanks for the explanation.

    165x5x3 my faith in the straps only went so far. not to my 80% 165 set. If I was actually injured, I'd probably push it some.

    9/18/2019 Wednesday wt: 261.5

    Press / Arc
    42x5
    90x5x3 9 min rest

    Squat
    0x5x2
    45x5
    135x5
    215x5x3 10 min rest

    Deadlift been working on hook grip
    135x5
    185x3 10 min rest
    242.5x0 Hook
    242.5x0 Hook 1"
    242.5x0 mixed To knees
    242.5x0 straps bad setup
    242.5x0 straps air on one side

    Hook grip trials started with using a hook grip on my Airdyne. (that's about 50 minutes)
    I gripped the bar using a hook grip for my squat sets before "actual setup"... just to get used to the feel.
    Hook felt great in warmup.

    I think I'll score this a progress toward learning the hook grip.
    and fail on the work set.

    The hook grip is tough to learn or perhaps tough to tolerate. It took me a few times but I started with warm up weights. After a few weeks I could tolerate up to 315 if I really really worked past the pain to my thumbs. Usually I switch to reverse grip at 315. So far the reverse grips carries me through the top weight without any trouble. I have other troubles, but not that one.

    See you next month, God willing.

    Thought better of doing some deadlift work, because the Bears game was starting, and Wednesday is my heavy deadlift session. My weekend plans were interrupted by travel.

    My brother cut spacer plates out of plywood. They came out great... I am such a wood butcher compared to him.

    Deadlift hook grip attempt #2

    242.5x1 owww
    235x0 hook

    Thoughts:
    This has a feeling of stupid.

    Maybe the deads should be moved to the Weekend.
    Perhaps reduce volume on light squats that day or eliminate them.

    I never have anything left for the deadlifts. I guess I could reduce the squats to sets of 4 or three, but that seems like an over reaction.
    Got the audible of Andy Baker's Programming book. Apparently I need the review.

    On a positive note, I found a couple pairs of hampton 45's which I am picking up this saturday. So I'll have 4 pairs of Hampton 45's. One of Troy (also wide rim calibrated) and a Standard. Which I'll find a good home for.

    starting strength nutrition camp
    doing deads on the light squat day is a good idea

    one idea also is if you can do your empty bar squats and then just your next tier (say 135) as a warm up, then do the dead so you are both warmed up and have some more juice in the tank
