This training vlog features the completion of my pivot cycle, weeks 2-4 focusing on high bar and box squats, feet up and close-grip bench, and sumo deadlifts.
- Maxed my close grip bench at 170. My current competition style bench max is 185.
- Added 35 lbs. to my sumo max.
- Made progress on high bar and box squats
- Hips are still rising early on my squats. I need to be more patient and let my chest lead
- Missed one rep on close grip bench, and failed two singles on Sumo
- Sumo pulls are still not technically where I’d like them to be. I have the strength, but struggle with setting up properly every time
- I still need to improve my lats, glutes, and hamstrings.
