Garage Deadlifts

Deadlifts in the garage tonight were a solo effort this time. My son went to bed and I went out to the garage for some deadlifts.

Light Stretching.
Deadlift Warm Ups - 4 sets/6 reps/135lbs Focus on speed. Also a couple of clean and jerks for fun.
Deadlift Working Sets - 3 sets/1 rep/225lbs, 3 sets/1 rep/275lbs, 3 sets/1 rep/325lbs, 3 sets/1 rep/375lbs.
Bent Over Dumbbell Rows - 3 sets/12 reps/2 x 50lbs.

The focus for all the singles was "Grab and Go". I really want to work on exploding my deadlifts. Speed is the key. All the sets were done sumo style and I only put on my belt for the last set of three singles at 375lbs. Everything feels pretty good.
