Decided to hit a quick session this AM and made it a "DL" session: Rack Pulls (bar just above knee cap at start of pull- so a short range rack pull) 585 x 2, 635 x 2, 675 x 1 (5 sec. hold), 725 x 1
Stiff leg DL (Conventional pull to the top and then three stiff legs ala Marty Gallagher) 315 x 3,3,3,3,3
I have never worked rack pulls before and it felt good - Why Rack pulls? Because I wanted to feel the weight above what I am shooting for at the meet March 29. Didn't feel the weight really until 725 (first time having 700+ in my hands- Man I love Heavy stuff!). Stiff legs felt good - different erector and hamstring work which should pay off come conventional DL time.
Yesterday I hit a 2 x 5 @ 80# in the DB bench as a bit of "a little of the hair of the dog" recovery workout from my DB bench session the other day. Yes - I was sore and still am a bit.
Let me say it again - I love heavy stuff - especially when I am picking it up!
