Temperature PR today deadlifting in garage with no insulation or heat, about 20 degrees, less outside because of windchill. I'm sure someone has probably beat that though.

Well, it's about -15 here right now outside and don't think I'd be lifting there.

I like them starting from low pins, like an Anderson squat. I usually set the pins to where I can barely get my knees under the bar and and work up to a heavy single after dead lifts. I've seen your 455 Zercher video, that was beastly. My best ever from low pins is 385.

I'm struggling back into heavy Zercher World. Had tight hips, pulled groin and hamstring, and a sprained knee this past winter.

I think doing a heavy Z squat right before I nailed a deadlift PR a few years ago helped me by activating the quads.
