That's Better

I was back at the bar today - for deadlifts and pullups. As expected, my training went better.

Tactical Pullups - Green Band - 10 min.
44 reps
-That's 8 reps more than on Saturday. In addition, I did sets of 4 and 5 today. On Saturday I did sets of 3.

BB Sumo DL - 135 lbs. - 10 min.
32 reps
-That's seven more than on Monday. However, I only pulled one rep at a time and reset before each rep. I'm trying to find a groove. I took Faizal's advice and found a better position for the bar. In the past, I've started with the bar touching my shins. Today, I started with the bar 2-3 inches from my shin. What a difference! I rarely got the tweak in my low back. That tells me I'm on to something. Now to do about 10,000 more reps! :P

Thanks for mentioning my name.

I know when I sumo, I start with my shins at the bar, but the knees don't go foward. But my legs are short, yours are long. Also, my feet are angles out. The important thing is that the bar is under your shoulder blades...

With a bad setup, a Sumo DL will never test well, nor should it.
