Guess who was up at 4:45 this morning, uhm my son. I made him go back to sleep as long as possible. I finally said if you are up you are working out. So we made a couple of Christmas lifting videos.

Hi Greg,

Happy Holidays. My back has been looking rounded and its been awkward lifting the weight up. On the last three, I narrowed my grip 5-6 inches on both sides. Felt way better all around. I know with a narrower grip I have to lift the weight higher to get underneath it but my pull and my back look and feel so much smoother.

Would you recommend I go to a wider grip and lift off of blocks or use a narrower grip and work it until the flexibility comes for a wider grip and lower start position? I need a higher start position so I can keep my back straight. I'm 6'1".

1:58 with 44lb KB

XX - You can try a narrower grip and a wider stance for now, but get on the flexibility!

The lifts felt much better today.

Sprint/KB swing done in 1" fresh snow. Snowing fairly hard.
1:37' w/53 lb KB and 45 lb DB on the other end.
Rest 2'
Pullup/box jump done on rings (pullups) and 24" hurdle jumps in place of box jumps.
Finished with some mills with a clubbell, then some stretching and compensatory work. And brushing snow off of the satellite so i could upload this post....
