HAMMING IT UP
You do four working sets, the first with 130 pounds (13 reps) and the second with 150 (nine reps). You finish with two drop sets, twice going from 160 (eight reps) to 100 (seven reps) without rest. You could use more weight, but instead of risking injury, you’d rather crank out the repetitions.
Next up: stiff-leg deadlifts. Actually, for you, these are bent-leg deadlifts, although you do keep your legs relatively rigid. Bending your knees takes the emphasis off your glutes and lower back and focuses it on your hams. You do sets with 225, 275 and 315, always getting 10-12 reps, not even bothering to wear straps.
