Training Log: Deadlifts (& new PR [video])

18 Jun

Shoulder stretch, roller, leg stretch with band

Warm up sets

Working sets:

405 x 1

450 x 1

505 x 1

520 x 1

540 x 0

530 x 0

 

Roller

Pleased with my new deadlift PR of 520 lbs. Thought I may have a little more in there but as you can see, 540/530 ended up as missed attempts. Still happy with this progress.

After all this I went and helped my neighbor. His motorcycle broke down at the entrance to our complex, so helped him push it up the hills and to his condo. Thing probably weighs 800+ lbs, so after all this I am pretty done.

If you aren’t a Nerdfighter, you should check out the world of Nerdfighteria.

No, I’m not going to explain, get to Googlin’, son(or daughter as the case may be).

Also, looks like the bar caught some skin on the last pull. Good stuff!
