A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Again I managed to get some time at work to hit the gym. I really like doing deadlifts at our gym at work. There is a large amount of open floor space which I find helps when pulling.

Warm Up
Paused Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 205lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 315lbs/6 reps.

Power Phase
Raw Deadlifts (no belt) - 3 sets/1 rep/485lbs, 2 sets/1 rep/555lbs (belt on second set), 1 set/1rep/485lbs.
*3 to 5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Raw Deadlifts (no belt) - 6 sets/6 reps/315lbs.
*3 minutes rest after each set*

Strength is up in all lifts. 555lbs equals my best competition deadlift with a belt. 2 singles last night one with and one with out. All the deadlifts felt controlled and somewhat easy (being relative)
