Monday Max Effort Squat/Deadlift

I feel much better. Here's how the work out went.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps.
*put on belt, wrist wraps, and knee wraps*
Squats - 405lbs/2 reps.
*over a bench*
Squats - 425lbs/3 reps.

Heavy walk Outs - 495, 545, 585lbs (12 sec hold).

Rack Pulls - 495, 495, 585, 585lbs (10 sec hold).

Sit Ups - 20, 10, 10.

That's, that. I had to do the rack pulls with my opposite grip. It didn't bother my elbow at all. When I tried to pull normally there seemed to be a bit of pressure at my right elbow and my hand would open up. Weird. All in all a good day back. Speed bench tomorrow.

I would probably let the elbow rest awhile longer and leave the heavy lockouts alone. You don't really need to hit this right now and you may hamper the healing since this is the movement you were injured on originally.

Work on some other things for now your deadlift strength will not diminish if you are squatting.
