Pull'en offa Blocks

We did sumo pulls for the first time in ages with the weight on a ~3" Box.
315 X 2 sets of 3
405 X 2 sets of 5
495 X 2
555 X 2
585 X 2
635 X 2
635 X 3
635 X 4  These went pretty well.  I tried to keep the weight manageable and work on my form and keeping my back arched / flat instead of letting it cave in like I normally do.

Conventional Deads form and more back work off of the blocks.
405 X 5
495 X 5
585 X 5

Elevated Glute ham raise: 3 sets of 6 with only my slimfat body weight of 314 lbs.  I tried moving up a notch from where I normally do them and Spud said I sucked.  From that I found out I had been doing glute hams wrong the majority of the time.  I was using to much back and momentum instead of using my hamstrings to get my fat ass up.  I think glute hams just got a lot harder for me....but more beneficial too I hope.

Slimfat is the new Sexy.
