03/21 ME DL

Conventional DL (Off Mats/Mid-Shin) 135x5, 185x4, 225x4, 275x3, 315x2, 365x1, 405x1, 455x1, 495x1, 545x1
Conventional DL (Off Mats Mid-Shin) (Down-Sets) 490x3x1
Band Leg Curls Minix3x15

Had a decent night, i decided to do Conventional DL (Which i suck at) with the weight placed on mats at around mid shin (roughly 3 inches higher than normal). I also took a double overhand grip with straps at the 405 mark (grip was weak from grip training at work). Since i've never done this before i was actually quite happy with the outcome and established a new record for yet another ME movement i can now do. Since i have a meet in july which is push/pull i am going to use more DL variations on ME day. I was only doing them once every 4 workouts but will change that to this: ME Squat, ME DL, ME GM, ME DL etc....at the twelve week mark i have a routine picked out to help me peak for the meet. Since i stink at Conventional DL's i figure to use these in the variations as well, this should help to jack up the old DL, guess time will tell...Tomorrow will be a feeder workout for todays pulling which lasted nearly an hour, i figure if i approach the weight right next time i should beable to break tonights record easily. I had more volume than normal on the approach as i had never done this sucker before...Well thats about it for now, until next time Eat Wheaties!!!

nice job in the PR, especially considering you don't do well with conventional. keep it up. what are your goals for that pushnpull meet?

Thanks Rick, i hope to pull 550 and bench 405, shouldnt be too lofty, anything higher would be gravy. I figure for both of those weights to be the second and go higher for third attempts. Guess we'll see where im at in a couple months. I got a pretty good 12 week meet cycle so im quite confident.
