This is going to help with your explosiveness off the floor as well as your lockout.
Why would bands help with strength off the floor?

if you use short bands like i do, they are already in tension even when the weight is on the floor. As you lift the load is increasing constantly as the band tension increases (which begins right off the floor).

Dude last week I workout in a electric blue thermal, your green compression socks, and my orange and grey NB sneakers. I looked like a mess.

Thanks. Yep, home gym. Just sold the house though so my new place will be a bit less cramped. Won't be done for a few months though. Inlaws basement has a pretty sweet spot for me though in the mean time.

Not sure yet. We bought a house that we are renovating but we are probably going to put it up for sale to see if we can make a profit before we decide to move in. If we can't sell it and we move in I will have 2 of three garage bays. So, a little less than double what I have now.

If we sell it and make some money we are building new. If that happens I am getting the basement poured to 12 feet and will have about 750 square feet for my gym.... I'm really hoping thats what happens, but we'll see.

No matter what happens I'll have a lot more room than I have now.

that's awesome man. I absolutely love having a home gym. I get anxiety sometimes thinking about if I sold the house and finding a home with a good area for the gym.

Good job man. Its good you went heavy. Maybe not balls to the walls immediately but still just make sure you're doing it right and you wont pull anything, and never go herky jerky then you're asking to pull something

Yeah, we have some pretty unique requirements in a house that has made it difficult to find something. Hopefully one of these works out.

Well, looks like I've hit a minor plateau. Previous PR is 415, tried jumping to 430, but could barely lift it off the floor. Went down to 420, and still couldn't quite make it. I'm thinking I just didn't eat enough, so I'll maybe try it again this week. Would still like to see 450 by July 1st..

Deadlift with your hips lower so your shoulder-blades end up over the bar.
