    Looks like a great session. This is getting tougher for me to keep motivated. I did trap Dl yesterday. Today I was at my grandsons house. I did one set of BP 95x5 that was tough for me. That was his 2nd warm up. It good to be 15.

    BrooklynJerry: Every set is a good set.

    On the other hand, this triggered my overtraining symptoms big time. LOL.

    Adapt. Adjust. Overcome.

    I've read and reread this article a few times. Seems to make more sense every time I do.

    I see the link didn't work, it was
    Maintenance, When to stop trying to train, by
    Mark Rippetoe. You probably read it before.

    RDL 135x3
    Good Morning 45x3

    Squat 95x1
    Squat 115x3,3,3
    Split squat 20 (10 in each hand) x 5,5,5

    have my forward foot up on the bench, which is high but I'm really tight I guess.
    My range of motion is slowly improving.
    I interleave the movements (split squat first).
    That is the best I can remember the bottom of a squat feeling.

    Taking it slow. No grand claims yet. LOL.

    It was wet or I would have taken my sled out.

    Saturday
    Petting zoo with grand daughter.
    Spent too much time seeking and using benches.

    Sunday

    Backwards sled pull 30# for 10 min

    Backwards sled pull 30# for 10 min session 2

    Monday
    Backwards sled pull 30# for 10 min

    Triggered OT symptoms

    RDL 135x3
    Good Morning 45x3

    Press w/arc 72x5 92x5,5,5
    Split squat 17degree wedge elevated 9.75in. 20 pounds 5,5,5 each leg

    This appears to be my most glaring weakness, which for me says a lot.
    My low back is tight, hip and knee mobility is next to non existent.
    This nonsense appears worth a shot. We'll know if it works if my "real" lifts improve.
    Oddly my walking is already a bit better.

    How does one do a "backward sled"? With such light weights what advantage do you see in doing them?

    Good Mornings 45x3

    RDL 135x3

    Halted Dead 225x3 255x3 was easy for a change

    Split Squats 20# x5,5,5

    Backwards Sled Drag 35# x 3 min 40# x 3 min twice

    Carson:
    Rogue Sleds and similar units like you are using have eyelets in the center front and back.
    They sell both belts and handles that attach with a typical length being about 6-7'.
    I used nylon ropes with 1" pvc (7" wide") as my handles.
    I dislike the belt because you want to train your full kinetic chain when possible.

    I do mine on the sidewalk using the wooden sled I make.
    Mine is 3 2x4's wide, with a plywood deck, 1" black pipe (to stack plates), and some eyelets to attach my handles.
    I'd say build the thing around the weight you have on hand. I had 35# plates, so I build around that.
    I find the wooden sled easier on the surface and less noisy.

    Gyms may have concerns about going backwards for safety or other reasons, so the option is handy to have.
