A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Tuesday, September 25, 2012


Bending bars and pulling like a "BOSS". Today I was able to work out at work. Although today was my best deadlifting work out to date I wasn't entirely happy. The only bar at the gym was a 700lbs chrome bar with a shallow knurling. The bar felt almost greasy.

Warm Up
Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs.
Deadlifts - 405lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 5 sets/1 rep/555lbs.
*5 minutes rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 5 sets/3 reps/405lbs, 1 set/4 reps
*3 minutes rest between sets*

By this time my hands are screeming. My lower back is stiff and sore. I'm pleased with today's workot. With a few more training days like that I will be making my best lifts, NO Problem.
