    Its nothing exciting, didnt get a rack, just ironmaster dumbbells, olympic bar, ez bar + plates and a incline decline bench. I go to the gym to do legs. There isnt enough room in my garage and i have to keep moving equipment, the DB's are frustrating to keep changing the weights, and it just feels boring. None of the movements feel the same as in the gym, as weird as that sounds. But the gym is also shit because you always have to change your workout due to people queing for equipment.

    Thanks for the feedback. What sort of lifts did you guys have in mind. I feel like my sticking point and the reason my form breaks is my lift off from my legs/using my hip as the fulcrum is shitty. I was thinking doing speed work around 250-300? What are some good core conditioning things you like to do MCB?

    Any other suggestions welcome.

    Look like you need some more power from the floor and more core strength. Zercher squats paused off pins would be something good to add into your routine. Heavy, sets of 8 work well.

    Yea deep ATG front squats w/a little pause at the bottom sound like a good starting point

    That doesn't mean you should stop deadlifting. Keep deadlifting. Just lower the weight to something you can pull without getting pulled over the bar.
