A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Saturday, November 10, 2012


Last day of pulls before the Eastern Canadian's next Saturday. Deadlifts are feeling really good as is everything else. Had a buddy from work join me in bending some bars at the Powerhouse. Fun was had by all.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Paused Squats - 3 sets/6 reps/135lbs.
Deadlifts - 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps, 405lbs/3 reps.

Working Sets
Deadlifts - 495lbs/1 rep, 515lbs/1 rep, 515lbs/1 rep, 545lbs/1 rep (with belt).

Rack Pulls - 405lbs/2 reps, 585lbs/1 rep, 675lbs/1 rep.

The 545lbs deadlift felt effortless. No sticking points. Just a smooth pull from the ground to lock out. 250kg opener for the Eastern's will be in order. Now it's time to heal up and stick to the diet. No more training. I'm hoping to drop a bit more before weigh-ins hopefully right around 140kg/308lbs.
