I don't pull my upper back into that Frankenstein position like some do, so I'd say I'm somewhat in support of this. I'd call it more neutral than rounded though.

But yeah...the guys who pull their shoulders way far back and basically get a reverse arch are the guys who never pull big numbers.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

yea I simply cannot do that at all. I'm either straight or a little rounded at the top. I try my best to keep straight and lowered my numbers a lot to try to correct it. I've been using a belt and working back up slowly. I think it's much better. Maybe I'll take video Friday when I do it again.

The times I've gone max out my back slightly rounds even though I try to keep my chest out and back straight. I think it's more of my shoulders pulling down and not staying back because of the weight..

I'd agree. Upper back rounding is a much smaller concern than lower back

That's good to know. I was getting frustrated because I really couldn't help it unless I lowered my weight a lot. I use my belt though, I know you said you don't right. I just wear it so it's a little higher. I have some pretty bad bruises from using it lol. Looks like hickeys at the top of my pelvis.

They go away after a while. They were SO uncomfortable for me the first couple months I had my Inzer belt.

yea man I'm on week 3 or so with the belt. I love it. Maybe it's in my head but the lifts I'm doing now are close to what I did over winter before I tweaked my SI Joint and they seem much easier.

After a pretty hardcore workout yesterday at the gym (..back squats, front squats, hang/power cleans, and weighted dips), I went with one of my buddies from the local PD to his Crossfit gym. The WOD was:
  • 800 meter warm-up run
  • Tabata push-ups
  • Dead lift sets up to 1RM (...my 1RM today was 300 lbs.)
  • Kettlebell sumo high pulls, kettlebell swings and burpees (..10/15/20 for 10 minutes; as many rounds as possible)
  • 800 meter cool-down run and 5 tractor tire flips

Fun times, but I still prefer the gym. I don't know why I just can't get into the Crossfit thing. I suppose that my DL 1RM would have been higher had I not done a heavy squat workout last night.

I could never go to one full time. I like using their equipment, but I dont like the idea of someone writing generic programming that I would need to adhere to.

Agreed! Rubber weights make such a huge difference. To be able to drop the weight saves so much energy.

I'm working out with 280 lbs. now. I did 5 sets of 5, and I'm finally experiencing that "wrecked" feeling again (...like I felt the first time I dead-lifted ). My abs are already sore and my ass and hamstrings are spasming. LOL!

that's a sh1t ton of reps for deadlift man. Not saying it's wrong but I've never seen the so called experts suggest that volume.

25 reps? I've regularly gone up to the 50ish range for deadlifts in a workout. We're not talking about one rep maxes here.

yea plus warm up I think it's a lot maybe. And he's entering up to his 5 rep maxes no?

Like I said, I could be wrong, I'm just sharing what I've read. Sometimes I do feel that I can do a little more but I am looking to increase my weights each week and my 1x5 heavy set is good for that. I do do 3x8 of romanian deads after though.

I'm not at my 5 rep max. I did 300 lbs. last week when I worked out with a buddy of mine at his Crossfit gym, and that was for 2 reps (..after working up through multiple sets at varying weights). I tried 315 lbs., but I couldn't get it off the ground. I'm sure that I'll be able to 1RM 315 lbs. in about a month.

Damn man you can def get 315. My max is 345 and I'm a vagina compared to you lol. I do think that your 5rep sets would kill mine though. I'm going for 270x5 on friday and think I'd be dead with 25 reps of that.

I think for most people after the 300 range you start getting into strap territory due to grip strength. I'm assuming you've tried all the different sort of grips, alternating overhand/underhand works best for me.

I can only do 2 sets max of my 90% 1RM range... the dizziness and fatigue start to set in way too much after that point, and it just feels wrong.
