Starting out the week like a BEAST!!! Deadlifts tonight were awesome. Feeling strong and ready for the Eastern Canadian's 17 Nov.

Warm Up
Paused Squats - 2 sets/8 reps/135lbs.
Deadlifts - 365lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 3 sets/1 rep/565lbs.
*ample rest between sets to recover but not more than 7 minutes*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (no belt) - 6 sets/3, 2, 2, 3, 3, 2 reps/420lbs to 470lbs (565lbs + grey bands)
*2 to 3 minutes rest between sets*

A slight disappointment last week. Tonight sure made up for it. I was going to pull 555lbs again but with the competition being less than one month away, it's time to start going up. I'll go again at 565lbs next week then go up the week after. Feeling GREAT!!!
