Thanks bros!

I need to bring that stuff up to pull in the 7's and squat in the 8's. I've added in regular grip work so I won't have issues on the dead. The other thing is I've put a healthy amount of sled work back in for conditioning and restorative purposes.

Thanks Wesley! I've been a little concerned lately because I've dropped down to about 228 from 240 or so (partly because I've been 'off' since 11/5, partly because I took about 2 weeks off of eating like a sumo wrestler and training). So I thought I would have lost a lot of strength, but I seem to be maintaining fairly well.

Too high, do you think? I think maybe I do that to require me to push back a lot with my hips. That's a movement pattern that has solid carryover to my competition squat.

I have the bar that high to. I think that is the most "natural stance" on arched back goodmornings. If i do them and i bent over that much, the bar ends up in my neck also.

I'd say stick with what you're doing, I for one can't do GM's with the bar high, it just feels unnatural and i have a tendency to round my back. If you can keep your arch (assuming your doing arhced back goodmornings) and have the bar high, I think that would be even better. If you're having good carryover dont change a thing! lol

Thanks for the feedback RC. :)

Those weren't specifically arched-back, but I don't like rounding much. I'm thinking that once I hit over 550, I'll cease doing singles and go to triples and 5's. I'm cool at this point, but I can sense that much more weight and the risk is just a little too high vs. the payoff of heavy singles. I understand Childress does over 600 for 5 reps. Of course, he's the top 308 in the world...
