A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

After walking and Squats this week my back is feeling much better. With a better back, Deadlifts were in order.

Warm Up
Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.
Squats - 315lbs/3 reps.
Deadlifts - 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts - 495lbs/1 rep (easy), 525lbs/1 rep, 525lbs/1 rep (with belt).
*aprox 5 minutes rest after each set*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts - 4 sets/3 reps/405lbs.
*aprox 3 minutes rest after each set*

Core Work
Ab Sling Knee Ups - 4 sets/15 reps.

My back isn't bothered at all by the Deadlifting today. In fact it feels much better. I alternated the Knee Ups with each Pump Phase set. I ran out of time before work so I only did 4 sets. Tomorrow morning I meet up with a buddy at the Powerhouse for some Geared Bench Press work. Fun stuff!
