Much better performance after work today than yesterday. Deadlifts felt heavy until I put my belt on then the bar was flying.

Warm Up
Light Stretching.
Paused Squats - 135lbs/8 reps.
More Stretching to open hips.
Paused Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 365lbs/6 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts - 3 sets/1 rep/525lbs (no belt), 525lbs/1 rep (belt), 525lbs/2 reps (belt).
*4 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with grey bands, no belt) - 6 sets/4, 5, 4, 3, 3, 3 reps/525lbs (380lbs to 430lbs).
*2 to 3 minutes rest after each set*

I'm sure my back side is going to be funky tomorrow. 525lbs for a double is a PB for me. It is pleasing to have such a strong work out the day after such a crappy one. Just shows that I am indeed getting stronger. I gotta keep driving forward.
