trained 3 days in a row. I have a busy weekend and wanted to make sure I got it in. Sumo deadlift is coming along. I am getting much more efficient at the movement, so I am feeling stronger. I have always conventional deadlifted so I am looking forward to see what I can do sumo over time.

I feel sumo has helped my back squat A LOT. Sumo really helps strengthen the hip and allows you to squat wider which is always a good thing when wanting to move weight.

Yes I definitely feel it is helping my squat which needs work. I have also felt I can recover better because I am using more legs and hips instead of relying on my back more witch I got away with conventional.

felt good today. The extra weight is helping. Every time I think I should tighten up a little I am stopped because of these workouts. Overhead press is nearing my 250 goal. Squats and dead’s are slowly creeping back up.

Congrats on the PR. 180x10 is strong. Then to hit 180x9 the next set. I'd be surprised if you couldn't hit 250 right now.

Dude you're way too big and strong to worry about "tightening up" at 200.

How tall are you @Thewall? I bet you are stout and built like a fire plug. Think I’ve seen a photo once, I thought yeah, more like a brick wall

Am I reading correctly that your standing strict press and seated press are identical at 180 x 10? In my experience the seated press is almost always significantly more then the standing press. Just curious.
