Training log playing catch up

I have been pretty preoccupied with life and life goals and have neglected my log.

I am sure it feels betrayed, cheated on, unloved. I am sorry lifting log, let me make it up to you with a menagerie of workouts to quench your needs.

Used doubled up mini bands for these, working on speed. I am going to forgo these in favor of more direct hamstring work on back day in the form of snatch grip and normal RDL’s. My hamstrings are a weak link of mine and in order for me to hit my eventual personal deadlift goals, I need to get them stronger.
