Deadlift Thursday: That'll Do

warmup w/DBs & band

8 reps @ 60 kgs
5 reps @ 100 kgs
5 reps @ 140 kgs
3 reps @ 180 kgs
1 reps @ 220 kgs
1 reps @ 240 kgs
4 reps @ 265 kgs PR

Seated rows
15 reps @ full stack equal to best effort
15 reps @ full stack
10 reps @ full stack
8 reps @ full stack

22 reps @ 100 lbs
14 reps @ 100 lbs

12 reps @ 20 kgs
10 reps @ 22.5 kgs

THAT was quite good.

Yeah, I think I should give myself a break on this one. 265 for 4 is pretty freaking strong. I'm normally over-critical about these things, but tonight everything felt good. Those reps were strong and pretty even - something that's been very noticeable in my deadlifts, for obvious reasons.

This is another positive step toward a 285 kilo 1RM in time for qualifiers.

I'd like to thank Gripped Fitness Accessories for the new digs; the straps and 'compression socks' came in real handy, along with my Hard Core lever belt (which I've had to adjust once already thanks to my steadily shrinking waistline) was sturdy and easy to use.

I'm looking forward to events training this saturday; Dan is over east for the weekend and I'm left to take charge... it's time to take my training instruction more seriously.
