Default SLDL and Good morning

Hey folks,

I'm working on a Back Training Program and I'm trying to figure out how I should program SLDL and Good mornings. I've never really done these lifts at a regular interval. Should I work off of a percent of my max for Deadlift or something else? Thanks!

Why are you doing them? (what's the goal?)

Default Back Training

I was trying to test out Greg's Back Training for Weightlifting

I really need to work on my support for Split Jerk and the bottom of the Snatch.

Just go by feel. If you haven't done them much, start very conservatively - you'll be extremely sore the first week from both if you haven't done them in a long time. After that, start upping the wts as you feel appropriate, making sure that the ROM and arch of your back doesn't change as the wt increases.
