What are some good supplemental exercises for squat and deadlift? I already do RDL once a week, but need help with some others. These lifts are lagging as of late and I need a boost. Thanks.

It depends where you're weakest, but these would all help: power and squat Cleans, power and squat snatches, overhead squats, back extensions, glute ham raises, front squats, snatch grip deadlifts, good mornings, high pulls, box squats, db or kb swings, and power shrugs. Also, make sure your form is perfect. Learning how to properly engage the posterior chain in both exercises is crucial.

Ryan,

I've had good luck with weighted lunges (overhead is great for OHS), extreme box jumps (think 36"+), and full range back extensions as a supp for squats.

Best thing I've done for DLs is bottom to top squats. Start with the weight on the lower supports of a power rack, get under it and push up to the top. Hope that's a clear explaination.

PS, nice L-hold with the boots on. That'd cut 30 seconds off what I can do barefoot

Natural Glute-Ham Raises and Good Mornings are my favorites.

Check out "the periodization bible, part 2" by Dave Tate for more ideas.

Thanks for the help. I am going to start the Hatch Squat Program Monday.
I'll also add some of the other exercises mentioned.
Thanks again.
