Bloody Deadlift PRs

Got my first nosebleed while lifting today. That's how you know it was a real Max Effort, I guess...

A1. Prehab/Mobility

B1. Deadlift

8 x 135#
5 x 225#
2 x 275#
1 x 315#
1 x 395
1 x 445# PR!

445# is an all-time deadlift PR. I popped an ammonia cap before the lift for a little more adrenaline, the lockout may have been questionable and I about passed out right after the bar hit the floor, but I'm freaking counting it. Nose bled a little after. My brain feels OK, though... 

C1. Push Press

8 x 45#
5 x 95#
3 x 155#
1 x 185#
3 x 2 x 205#

I missed DE Upper this week so I wanted to get some heavy shoulder work in. Right shoulder is still a bit creaky but again is nothing impeding my strength.

D1. 1/4 Squats

8 x 135#
5 x 225#
3 x 315#
4 x 6 x 425#

Figured since my hips were already warm, I'd work on some squat lockout techniques. These felt great.

E1. Squat Finisher

30 x 135#                  

Just because. :)

Great session. Time to shower, eat and nap.
