New Exercises

As in the past I've done some soul searching and worked on weak points in my training. Today I worked on pull-ups. Like dips I have trouble with pull-ups because of weak muscles and high body weight. Here's how today's work out went.

Deadlifts (raw no belt) - 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps, 365lbs/3 reps, 405lbs/2 reps, 455lbs/1 rep, 455lbs/1 rep.
Shrugs (with straps) - 315lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps, 365lbs/6 reps, 365lbs/6 reps.
Pull -Ups (body weight-weight assisted) - 170lbs/6 reps, 180lbs/6 reps, 190lbs/6 reps, 190lbs/6 reps.

In addition I peformed other exercises that felt good. I think I'll refer to this work out as "STRAP DAY". It's now several hours later and my back feels great.
