Glad I could help, FF. I can't believe how badly I misinterpreted what a hook grip actually is. Liege - I'm doing the sumo deadlifts because the starting position allowed for a more natural position for my lower back. I hear you on the lack of carry over - which is precisely why I'm training the Oly lifts the way that I am. ...And that brings me to my first tweak of the program. Shock and surprise, right? Starting with my next power week (starting 10/1) I'm going to train one lift per day. I haven't figured out what the progression will be, but I came to that idea yesterday. If I do that, I can focus 100% on form for one lift, for a full workout. I think that may really help me to get my form down quicker - for all the lifts, not just the Oly stuff. I know I can improve my form for my deadlifts and squats, especially as I get deeper into each set. The other reason for the change is that if I continue to have this much rest through the week, I'm gonna go nuts.
