    Trust your instincts and do what feels natural to you. Head up, head down - it doesn't really matter. What matters is that you keep your chest up and your lower back neutral.

    Cool.

    And correction to the above, I did a pull-ups pregression, not a push-up progression!

    Anyway, thanks to everybody for helping me out. I'll probably always be extremely underinformed about fitness, but at least I learn some things here.

    Was deadlift today on the 5/3/1 program

    5 x 100
    5 x 117.5
    10 x 132.5 (292lbs)
    3 x 137.5
    10 x 100

    Front squats
    5x6 @ 65kg

    Front squat isometric hold (I'm focusing on strengthening my upper back at the moment, and this is killer for that)
    105kg for 10 seconds
    135kg for 10 seconds
    145kg for 25 seconds

    and then I used the ab wheel from the standing postion, got 7 reps in the first three sets, then dropped a bit in the last two.

    Well, I disagree. Don't do what comes natural if it doesn't allow you to lift the most weight in the safest manner. Which, in the case of the squat and deadlift is often coached with the imaginary tennis ball under your chin. In extreme cases, the actual tennis ball under your chin works too. Don't drop the ball, Knifeman.

    What makes you think it's inherently safer and more efficient to look down when you deadlift? I know the double-chin deadlift is being pushed pretty hard these days by Mark Bell and his boys at the Power Project, but I'm not really sure that proves anything. What I do know, however, is that a neutral or Pez-dispenser head position is preferred pretty much everywhere outside the States.

    More often lately I wish I still had my gym membership. But I don't and body weight works! Today I didn't have much time so did a quick exhaustion workout:
    50 push-ups (40 to 50 are the tough ones)
    100 squats (felt like I could have done more, but legs feel it now)
    20 pull-ups (had to go 12+8)
    2 minute plank
    That was after participating in my wife's dance fitness class and working on handstands for a while.

    Went and refilled my sand bag, filled it to about 30ish kg i think. Anyway just did a random work out but loved it, chinups with a few pull ups and negative pullups, some deadlifts of the sand bag, lunges and squats with some olympic presses and pushups. Simple as you can get, did it pretty fast paced to the point i was huffing and puffing. Thats the kind of workouts i can do, im over the gym and weights, sets, reps etc.
