    Itís surprising how easy pull-ups are now, even at my heaviest ever body weight.

    Didnít feel like my breathing was good at all for these sets.

    Hooper,
    Deadlifting big has been a struggle for me, and I did like being a little more fresh for those deadlifts whenever I could. Recently Iíve just been doing one or two lifts in a session. Good luck on your log!

    Thanks for the reply! I went light on squats today and it was a big help on the deadlift. It didn't fix my stubby-fingered grip issues but my legs and back were much more responsive. Best of luck to you too!

    Tough to get the five this morning. I have a brand new barbell now (no more hex nut). I am hook gripping, and I will need to toughen up my thumbs and hands more to adjust to this new bar. Will retry this weight later in the week. My body weight is about 225 right now. Since I do so little volume, I think the missed training week also set me back.

    Deadlift (I mis-loaded the bar again. I tried to load 425. Perhaps I am brain dead).

    435 x 4
    435 x 1

    Probably could have pulled 5 in a row if my focus was better. The two of the plates were hanging off my rubber mat and it distracted me. Even with the reset it was shy of 2 minutes to pull the 5(105 seconds from the start of first pull to the last).

    My hands are getting tougher, but now my shins and knees are torn up and bloody.

    This is some solid work dude.

    I kind of just skimmed through your whole log. We sorta had similar stumbling blocks with the Deadlift. I associate mine with being too fat and and not getting my back set property.

    Wondering what success you've had in fixing you're Deadlift issues.

    Keep it up, your getting there

    Thanks man. Biggest thing for me technique wise is making sure the bar is set over mid foot, and then squeezing my chest up out of the bottom. I also train very infrequently compared to my first 4-5 months of NLP, so I might be a little less fatigued and more focused. I always wear longer socks, and have sometimes worn sweats when I'm pulling. Not sure how common that is for folks but sometimes the scabs on my shins just need a break. You might try that and see if it helps you pull with a wider stance?
