Training: 10/25/2011

A. Snatch Grip Deadlift: 3,3,2,2,1,1; rest 3min (295,315,325,335,345,355(f))
B1. BB Front Rack Walking Lunges: 5x10-12 steps; rest 90sec (155,165,170,175,205)
B2. GH Raises: 5x8-12; rest 90sec (12 w/ purple band for all)
C. Front Splits: 3x5reps/side; rest 30sec b/t

Notes: Have been getting a bit of exposure to the snatch grip over the last few weeks and it is now clear where the weakness of my deadlift emerges. When bringing the bar from the floor, my butt comes in the air first, most likely to load the hamstrings. This leaves a lot of stress on the lower and upper back, and leaves the bar on the floor. Need to get these stronger if I want to increase my deadlift. Pleased with my effort on those though. BB walking lunges, with the lower reps, were tough. I focus on using the glutes and hamstrings and not pushing back into my lower back. GH raises roasted my hamstrings. I think the front splits make me more sore than anything else!
