Pull+ Monday: Deadlifting Again

I HAVEN'T deadlifted in over six weeks. The hip complaint that stopped me from heading to the Arnolds this year has pretty much fixed itself, and now that it's good again I have confirmed my entry in the WASM qualifier, April 7th: two weeks away. One of the events is a 225 kilo standard bar deadlift for max reps in one minute. So for comp prep, tonight I did 10 reps in about 50 seconds, no straps, no belt. I quit before my grip failed... now I know where that point is, I may decide to use straps on the day. I should consider keeping my grip strength for the other pick and carry events.

Hit a few new personal records tonight also. I should be happier about this. Instead I'm planning the next session.
