Birthday-ish Deadlifts

ME deadlift day! It was supposed to be yesterday but I was stuck in Arkham City all day, so I never made it to the gym. :)

A1. Hip/Shoulders Mobility/Prehab

B1. Deadlift

8 x 45#
2 x 8 x 135#
5 x 225#
2 x 275#
1 x 315#
5 x 335#
4 x 365#
2 x 400#
1 x 400#

The 400# was supposed to be a triple, but rep #3 was glued to the floor. So I rested a minute and knocked out the last rep. Video!

C1. Front Squat w/Chains

12 x 45#
5 x 95#
3 x 2 x 175# (w/2 chains)
2 x 3 x 175# (w/2 chains)

I was still working on my wrist flexibility for this, using the clean grip. I managed to get up to 3 reps on a few sets. Woot. Maybe by year's end I'll be up to 8 reps with normal weight! Video for depth and wrist flex comparison week over week. Put wraps on for the last set just to see if they'd help. They did not- felt like they were dislocating my wrists. F-that.

C2. 1-Arm Rows

5 x 6 x 110#

D1. Front Squat Holds

3 x 30s x 275#

E1. Crucifix Holds

3 x 30s x 25#/arm

I was gonna do a Clean & Press for reps as an event, but I was wiped at this pont, and the session was going on 2 hours, so I cut it short. Good thing, too, since I had to take Jess to the ER for a burn on her hand from cooking... She's fine, if not a bit of a klutz :)
