August 13, 2019 – Pull/Lower Body Training Day and Nutrition

Pull/lower body workout featuring snatch grip deadlifts

There was a time when I wouldn’t be caught dead on camera without lifting over 400lbs.

Pure, unadulterated, ego.

But I figured something out along the way:
In my younger days I could get a muscle pull or a strain and be fine in a day or two.

Now, the slightest tweak will put me out for weeks.

Longevity is the name of the game for me right now and I want to be training long after the middle of this century.

Here’s the workout for the day:

Snatch grip deadlifts 5×5
Conventional deadlifts 3×5
Hip snatches 5×3 superset with hanging leg raises
Off set overhead sand bag lunges superset with burpees 5 sets of 3 each side and 5
Lying dumbbell triceps extensions 4 sets of 15

No movement is truly low risk. I have a friend who’s squatted 1,000 plus in a meet who threw out his back picking up a ten pound weight.

The aim is to reduce risk and get rid of ego.
