100-lb DB snatch is pretty darn impressive.

Thanks. My hips are feeling much better now, and I'm working on getting my squat back to where it was.

Dumbbell Step-ups felt pretty easy today, even with the 100 lb dumbbells. The hardest part was picking up and putting down the dumbbells before and after each set.

I'm thinking of pairing Barbell Back Squats with Turkish Get-ups and Straight-leg Deadlifts with Barbell High Pulls.

As before, I plan on performing regular Barbell Deadlifts on my heavy days and Straight-leg Deadlifts the rest of the time (sets of 5 or more).

I tried doing SLDLs with High Pulls today, skipping Barbell Holds. So far, so good.

I'm keeping a space open for Barbell Front Squats, which I plan on bringing back sometime in the near future.

I tried Dumbbell Swings for the first time yesterday. So far I like them.

PS) These are two-handed swings performed holding the dumbbell by the plates at one end.

I tried out a new lifting belt yesterday. This one is thicker than the one I've been using and the same thickness all the way around, instead of narrow in the front and thicker in the back. Anyway, it's much more comfortable and seems to stay in place better.

do you use any specific percentages of the 5rm, when you are doing the first two sets of 12 reps and 8 reps of an exercise where you are doing 5 sets?
