Day 13 27 April 2009

All I can say is WOW!!! The break didn't hurt my lifts at all. Here's what I did today.

Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 295lbs/4 reps, 3 sets/3 reps/355lbs.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps (close grip), 225lbs/6 reps, 5 sets/4 reps/255lbs.
Deadlifts (Titan Superior 52) - 385lbs/1 rep, 505lbs/1 rep, 555lbs/1 rep, 575lbs/miss.

I only missed the 575lbs deadlift because to right leg of my suit rolled up. I have no idea how it happened but it really threw off my pull. I tried to fight it but couldn't manage a lock out. Doing raw sumo deadlifts has really helped my geared sumo deadlifts. I'm trowing myself into the lift better than before. In the past I would keep applying more pull to the bar until it came off the ground. Now I'm exploding into the pull. I'm very surprised with how much speed it's coming off the floor. I'll make sure I have a video camera for next Monday.
