A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Friday, October 04, 2013


I don't like deadlifts but deadlifts sure do like me. They scare the shit out of me and subconciously I am distracted by almost anything so I don't have to do them. After a deadlifting work out however I always feel great!

Warm Up
Legs Swings and Extensive Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps, 185lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 365lbs/4 reps, 455lbs/1 rep.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 555lbs/miss, 3 sets/1 rep/525lbs.

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with belt and light bands) - 525lbs (480-430lbs)/2 reps, 3 sets/6 reps/455lbs (410-360lbs).

Right now my posterior chain and not my lower back is pumped. Glutes and Hams feel awesome! My numbers still are not where I want them to be this close to competition.
Right now, my openers are as follows; Squat 190kg, Bench Press 150kg, Deadlifts 230kg, Total 570kg. Which is good enough to qualify for Nationals.
