deadlifts

Don't forget to log your training in the comments below! I write this data down and use it to find trends in your guys' progress, which helps me program the training blocks!

*If you can't do regular chin-ups for at least 8 reps, do 4 near-maximal sets of regular chin-ups. If you can't do at least 5 chin-ups, perform 4x3 chin-up negatives, shown here

E) Barbell Overhead Hold

*Get the weight up any way you can. Preferably, you'd set J hooks or safeties in a squat rack to where you can get under the weight and pick it up, but you can also push press or jerk the weight overhead. Squeeze your glutes, quads and abs for stability!
