Notes: Started off with the WSLBGM. Wore my weightlifting shoes for this movement and I think it is a disadvantage in the movement due to the fact that the weightlifting shoes prevent you from staying in your heels as you push your hips back. My lower back was rounding a bit at the end range of motion and it tightened up. Next time I will definitely go barefoot or no soled shoes.
SL deadlifts left side much weaker in both stability and strength of glute activation. Noticed on video that I was initiating the movement with my legs and hips on the right leg and my lower back on the left leg. Same deal on the back extensions. I felt it was much easier to activate glutes on right side rather than left.
Demel deadlifts were better on the second set when I took off my weightlifting shoes. Felt it more in the butt and hamstrings and was able to go a bit heavier.
