Jonathan Byrd Squat and Deadlift Training

Squat and deadlift combo day. I really didnt have a plan set in stone today, but wanted to do some heavier stuff. Decided I would throw on some briefs and work up to a single in the 7-8 RPE range. Then go a little heavier than last week on the form pulls.

added briefs
added wraps

Deadlift: Conventional stance


Overall was a solid training day. The squats felt great, and I am starting to get the feel for pulling conventional again. Body weight is staying in the mid 280s, but I am hoping that my crapping eating on July 4th didnt mess that up!
