You're both very welcome! It helps me out to post every day and then I can go back and look at old stuff. I guess I could do that on paper too, but, I don't. lol

As for trap vs straight BB deads, I honestly do not know! I personally believe that BB deads will build more muscle on your posterior chain which is key for throwing. But, you can build lots of power from trap bar deads without taxing your CNS by going heavy or light. I use them now for explosive purposes, either doing jumps with the trap bar or lighter deads with a power shrug at the top. 

All I know, is Vierra did loads of trap bar and he is the best thrower in history (arguably, of course). So I guess it's whatever fits your body type/purpose/plan! 

I like em both.

A few days of shoveling thanks to Blizzard GoF**Kyourself, but I am back in action today. I think the shoveling got to me, as well as too much ambition. 

Warm Up 

Dead Lift 

135x5, 225x5, 225x3, 315x3, 315x3, 315x3, 405x2, 405x1, 455x1, 495x1, 545x0 woomp. Didn't even budge it. I am strong enough to pick it up, but today was not the day. 

Block Pulls off 4" Blocks (put bar at mid shin) 

405x5, 405x5, 455x5, 455x5, 495x5 this made me feel a little better. 

Front Squats 

135x5, 135x5, *add 2 sec pause 185x2, 185x2, 205x2, 225x2, 225x2 *remove pause, 225x3, 225x3, 135x10, 135x10 Ever since I started activity bracing with my core, a-la Jon Hereth, my front squats have suffered. It exposes my weak core. Something I need to keep working on. 

BB Glute Bridge with red band around knees / Reverse Hypers / Ab Wheel 

315x10, 315x10, 315x10 / 3x12 / 3x12 

Hip Stretches and smashes

Odd side note: I have been eating well but not holding back on snacks and treats. Also not holding back on protein/sweet potatoes. But my BW has dropped to a new low as an adult. I was 283 the other morning and sitting around 285. I haven't been this low since fresh/soph year of HS. I have been taking 5-6 walks a week with my new dog which I believe is what is doing it but I did not expect walking to have such an effect. Just an interesting side note.

Taking the weekend off was amazing. Back was a little on the sore side this weekend so I was ready to get after it today in squats. 

Warm Up 

Squats 

135x5, 135x5, 225x5, 225x5, *add 80# chains 225x3, 225x3, 225x3, *bump to 120# chains 225x3, 225x3 *remove chains 295x8, 295x8, 295x8 ugh, I need this but, ugh. 

Speed Deads from 2" Deficit 

*All sets against doubled red bands 185x3, 185x3, 185x3, 185x3, 185x3 just keeping it light and fast. 

Bulgarian Split squats 

Ended up just doing a few sets and reps at 95# because my right leg reallllly started hurting doing these. Pain in the quad, glute, and back on decent. Oddly enough, though, everything felt good once I racked it, like better than before. Thinking a nerve is getting pinched a bit. So I stopped. Everything else felt good. 

Ab Wheel

3x12 

3 KB Jumps + 3 Broad Jumps 

5 rounds. trying to add splosiveness back into my routine. 

Rolling and such then burn out on leg extensions. I could barely walk after.

Lowered the overall volume today. I felt it was needed 

Warm Up 

4" Deficit Deads 

135x5, 135x5, 135x5, 225x6, 225x6, 316x6, 315x6, 315x6, 315x6 then removed deficit and added Fat Gripz to see how heavy I could go! 315x1, 320x1, 325x1, 330x1 not bad. 335 slipped out. 

Pause Squats, 3 second pause

135x5, 135x5, 185x3, 185x3, 225x3, 225x3, 225x3 my right quad had a shooting pain going through it which made these hard. Not sure what it is, but it's random. 

Plyo Circuit 

3 box jumps on 33" box + 3 broad jump med ball throws w/ 20# med ball + Ab wheel x10 

4 rounds total with no breaks 

Did a few hip extensions but then called it and decided to PVC roll out and stretch instead.

This is how I imagine training will be in heaven.

Weightlifting movements - seems like you work mostly from the hang. Reasons? I have my suspicions but want to hear your input. Shocked

WELLLLL, it's mostly because I'm really bad from the floor LOL. Saying my clean technique is poor is a vast understatement. I have discussed it with others who think from the hang applies more to throwing but I think just doing powers applies more to throwing regardless of if it starts from the floor or hang or blocks etc. Sometimes I switch it up and do them but once I get to 275 or so, I start breaking down in form and rather than spend the time to practice and fix it, I give up and go to hang. Real inspirational, I know but yeah. You, on the other hand, have some velvety-smooth cleans my man. Quite jealous!

I agree with you on the work from the hang and the value of the "power" variation of olympic lifts. I think its all about generating max explosive bar speed in a short period of time from the hang and dropping much to catch something defeats the purpose in a way because you really want to move the bar as far as possible with that explosion as opposed to a short distance where you then just work your body around it to catch it and make the lift.

This for me hits the nail on the head. Now, that being said, of course guys who are doing full cleans and snatches are producing loads of explosive bar speed. However, you're right that one could potentially catch a clean and stand with it by only pulling the bar to say, belly button height, maybe somewhere between belly button and nipple. You still have to go full hip extension, upper back extension, etc to get there, but I like the transition of pulling the bar to nipple or above height and catching in power. 

Either way, if olympic lifts groove with your throws training (they are not necessary) I'd say stick with powers. *Unless you're practicing fulls for other strength ventures like our man Justin. 

I say all of this with zero academic evidence/research to back it up. But since it's really just the 3 of us reading it, I don't feel too bad!

ALL of this is GOLD! Same with what Charles said as well I enjoy the fulls as well which is why I do them...BUT an something I have to go back and commit to as well for throws - There is a big difference (for me at least, sample size n=1) in pulling for MAX SPEED versus how I may pull on a heavier lift for COMPLETION. Sounds weird to say that you wouldn't go for max speed with let's say max lifts, but I think that comes down to my inexperience in technique. But I've used the OpenBarbell V2.0 (tendo unit) and when training powers with light weight focusing on speed, it seems to be extremely different than my pulls with near max weights. Intent is huge and my focus needs to shift back to speed for more transfer.

Makes perfect sense to me about the speed. When I throw, my best throws come when I don't think about going super fast. I think about going smooth. I know I can move faster, but it doesn't always equal a better result because I break down in form. 

I dig it man. I want a tendo thingy
