05/03 SE Squat/DE DL

SE Free Squat 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x4x5
Speed DL's against Doubled minis 250x8x1
Single Arm KB Swingthru 48x4x6
Spread Eagle Sit-Ups 3x10

The SE Squats were pretty easy, i just concentrated on form and really keeping my arch in the hole. I definitely saw a huge difference in my form on the PC as now i am more upright and sitting down into the squat. My hips are getting more accustomed to this wide stance thing too, doesnt feel like my legs are getting ripped from the sockets anymore. I was being a bit of an ostrich with this one as i was concentrating on getting my bench up and slacking in the Squat/DL area, thats what you get i guess. Back on track and moving the numbers up damn it!!! Those Speed DL's are brutal as hell, i almost puked after doing them, again with the 30 sec rest, what am i doing to myself? One thing is for sure, i should develop some killer speed off the floor and the lockout is coming along... should be interesting to see how everything pans out. Swingthroughs were well, swingthroughs, ho-hum. I foun dyet another way to torture my hipflexors, the spread eagle situp, holy crap these killed, i felt like such a puss ofr doing only 3x10, but my hips on the front side were burning up...these should definitely help with "in the hole issues"...well there's my blow by blow commentary, not too bad for a SE/DE day.....thanks for stopping by, later days willie mays!!!

Speed DL are brutal! Workouts look good. Are you doing all your wide stance squatting raw? Tough on the hips. Spread eagle sit ups are a killer!

yeah im doing everything wide stance noawadays and am still getting accustomed to it, i figured alot of my accessory work is for that style of squatting i may as well start squatting that way....

I am in no means a gear fan but some loose groove briefs could say you some serious mileage doing wide stance squatting raw. Back in my SHW days of wide squatting I was doing 700x3 deep and I feel this did some damage to my hips.

i agree, i think i will start with my loose suit straps down and order a pair of groove briefs. Thanks for the advice.
