    Why don't you try under/over hand grip on your deadlift? Will help as you progress up the weights. And I just noticed your upper back rounds more on the last few reps. Jealous of your travelling plans :)

    Is there a technique change required or just to concentrate keeping my back from rounding?

    What I mean is, is there some smart movement I can do to ensure it doesnt happen, like stick bum out?

    I am going back football training after almost 8 weeks off with a fractured toe. It still hurts but I am really feeling the pressure from my manager and team mates so I said I would give it a go tonight.
    I am not sure if I am ready but I doubt it. We will see tonight!

    Wednesday Evening:

    Low numbers at training so played a 4*4 for 90mins. Good cardio workout. I needed it. My toe is feeling fine today after it, so that's really good news! My touch was appalling though.
