Day 16 4 May 09

Deadlifts are going well but my gear is not co-operating. I had my deadlift suit taken in once again and the body feels good but the legs are still too loose. I guess one more time in the sewing machine and I should be good to go. After this competition I'm going to retire my deadlift suit. It's had more work done to it than Joan Rivers. Here's how things went today.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/6 reps, 295lbs/6 reps, 345lbs/3 reps, 355lbs/3 reps, 365lbs/3 reps.
Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps (narrow grip), 5 sets/4 reps/255lbs.
Gear Deadlifts - 405lbs/1 rep, 495lbs/1 rep, 495lbs/1 rep, 565lbs/1 rep.
Conv Raw Deadlift - 495lbs/1 rep.

A fairly good day of deadlifts. On the second set @ 495lbs I set up opposite and ended up lowering the bar onto my right foot. One of my toes is bruised a bit. When putting the weights away I decided to try 495lbs for a raw single. A very nice pull if I do say so myself.
