  • Pretty beastly workout Lee,

    I thought the partial deadlifts were interesting, i’ve seen Stan Efferding do partials from the lower portion of the lift, he advocates that you should do that on a max deadlift day as to not shoot your CNS too early with the lockout portion of the actual deadlift.

    That being said, i might try some of the partials illustrated in your video at the end of my next leg workout.
