Good workout today.  I skipped my rest day and went back to back with yesterday's workout so I could line things up to go to Untamed Strength on Saturday.  My back was only mildly sore so I was able to get in all my sets.  I did sumos for my warmups to take it a little easy on my back and that felt good.

I used my new bar for deadlifts and that worked out great.  It is a American Barbell Stainless Precision Training Bar that I picked up used from the Play It Again Sports in Chico this weekend.  It is an Olympic Bar with a milder, yet grippy knurl that I think will work well for hooked grip.  This morning I gave that a go and used the hook grip for my first set at 395.  After that I used a hook/mixed combo and went with straps on my final set (my thumbs could't take the final set).  I think I'll get used to it, though, and turn to hook a majority of the time in the near future.
