A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

A little slow last night at work so I managed to get in a work out.

Warm Up
Paused Squats - 115lbs/6 reps, 165lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 315lbs/8 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 6 sets/1 rep/485lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 3 sets/5 reps/315lbs, 2 sets/4 reps/315lbs, 1 set/6 reps/315lbs.
* 3 minutes rest after each set*

A good solid work out. My side is feeling better and I'm learning how to stay more "upright" when starting to pull. It's making the lift much easier. After deadlifts I wanted to do some foam rolling. With out a foam roller at work my only other option was to use a hard rubber medicine ball. Damn did it ever hurt but my back feels great now. I'll have to try it with mine in the SANCTUM.
