Deadlifts 20 Mar 09

It's Friday and I want to finish the week off right. Deadlifts are an excellent way of doing that. Here we go.

Sumo Squats (w/u) - 135lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/4 reps.
Sumo Deadlifts - 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/3 reps, 365lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.
At this point I put on my Deadlift suit, a Titan Superior Suit.
Sumo Deadlifts (gear) - 405lbs/2 reps, 455lbs/1 rep, 495lbs/1 rep, 545lbs/1 rep.
Just for good measure I put the 545lbs onto 2 inch blocks.
Sumo Deadlifts (gear) - 545lbs/1 rep.
Lat Pull Downs - 180lbs/6 reps, 210lbs/6 reps, 240lbs/6 reps.
Good Mornings - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 275lbs/6 reps.

And thats it. I'm really pleased about my lifts this week. Especially the way deadlifts finished the week. I did however find a weak point. Before in my training when my deadlifts were strong I was doing Good Mornings with 315lbs for 6 reps and they seemed quite easy. Tonight as I type this I feel my glute/hamstring tie-ins. My lower back still feels great so I'll add good mornings as part of my deadlift day just to work that weaker area.
Also, I ripped some skin off my right hand while lifting 495lbs. It bled a bit but of course it didn't stop my work out:).
