Angry Bir... er, Deadlifting

Deadlifted today.


No, scratch that.


I sucked at deadlifting today.

A1. Deadlift

2 x 8 x 135#
5 x 225#
2 x 315# felt really easy. was excited for singles
1 x 365# this flew up
1 x 405# this also felt great
0 x 455# glued to the floor
0 x 425# also glued

So the plan was to do a few singles at 425#. However, the 405# felt so great that I let my eyes get bigger than my butt and I went for the PR at 455#. I couldn't budge it, so I dropped to 425#. That also wouldn't budge. I should have stuck with my plan.


I was so pissed that I did 3" deficit deadlifts.

B1. 3" Deficit Deadlift

12 x 315# (4, 2, 2, 2, 2)

The last set is not on video as the battery died. These all felt great. I will destroy that sticking point at the bottom and get my damn deadlift PR in a few weeks.

Videos:



C1. 1-Arm Row

4 x 6 x 110#

C2. Plate Hold

3 x 30s x 45#

Deadlifts didn't go the way I wanted today and I had to skip the prowler at the end due to the Syracuse-Ohio State game starting. I guess I can't complain too much- maybe tomorrow I'll do a Farmer Walk/Prowler medley and freak out the neighbors :)
