Back from a teaching weekend

Got a training session in on Friday with some new friends and some old friends

I usually workout on my own so getting to train with other like minded individuals is a great time for me.

Started with a little Foam Roller and Primal Move
One arm One leg push-up x 1+1, 1+1
Pistols x 1+1, 1+1

HSPU with 8" elevation x 2, with 12" elevation 1, 1, 1, 1

Deadlift x 315 x 1, 1  x 365 x 1,  x 405 x 1, 1 (video of first rep above)

KB Snatch 24kg x 8+8 x 5 sets (80% snatch test)

Stretch etc....

I have not touched a bar since July 23 so to hit 405 for a couple of singles is not bad.

My foot position has gone back to my old stance (more on this in an upcoming article).

Mr Jones:

Your return to the Deadlift platform (as well as Power to the People, Deadlift Dynamite, the Strong First Forum, and my own experience) leads me to several questions. Hopefully, you find the time to reply.

Warmups are my first concern. PTTP calls them a waste of time. At what point, with regard to weight lifted, do they become necessary (if ever)?

With weights in mind, my next concern involves cycling and increments. As one approaches two to two and one half bodyweight lifts, can five pound increments even be recognized by the body as dropping back? Today, I plan to revamp my cycling for the remainder of my twelve week cycle, with larger increments to test this out.

As always, there are a number of other questions, but these will suffice, for now.

Your insight, as always, is appreciated.

Be well,

yes warm ups are necessary but can be limited
for this workout I pulled:
135 x 1
225 x 1
315 x 1, 1
365 x 1
405 x 1, 1
and I had hit some Primal Move etc... before that

For cycling the jumps can be much larger than 5# but need to be based on the individual

Hope that helps
