Deload and Stones

Today was day 1 of deload week, but I just HAD to play with my new Atlas Stone :)

No video. Battery still dead. Whoops.

A1. Hip/Shoulders Mobility/Prehab              

B1. Deadlift
8 x 45#
2 x 8 x 135#
5 x 225#
2 x 275#
1 x 315#
2 x 335#
2 x 360#
2 x 385#
1 x 385#

The 3 reps at 385# were supposed to be a set of 4, but man, my hands ran out. Grip was dead. And this is the DELOAD part of the 6 week deadlift program... supposed to test my 1RM next week. We'll see about that...

C1. 1-Arm Rows

4 x 10 x 80#

C2. JM Press

3 x 8 x 55#

Kept the rows and JM Presses nice and light.

D1. 48" Atlas Stone Load

2.5 x 1 x 175#                              

This would have been 3, but the first rep I lapped and realized that as I tried to stand up, my belt and the stone were pinching my upper abdomen to the point of too much pain to finish the lift. Still, I'm happy with it- it's the first time I've ever gotten a stone up and over anything! Woot.

Talk about a full body workout, though. After the second one, my entire body was done. Definitely going to be a lot of work getting used to this lift.
