Deadlifts day 12

Boxing Day and Deadlifts. I was lazy this morning and with a stomach still full of Christmas turkey it was time to DEADLIFT!!!

Warm Up
Leg Swings (20), Stretching.
Squats - bar/10 reps, 135lbs/8 reps.
Deadlifts - 275lbs/8 reps, 365lbs/6 reps, 455lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 5 sets/1 rep/530lbs.
*5 minutes rest between sets*

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with belt and medium bands) - 6 sets/4, 4, 4, 4, 3, 4 reps/375lbs to 430lbs.
*2 minutes rest between sets*

Fabulous Deadlifts this afternoon. I can really feel my hamstrings and glute tie ins. Lower back feels great. I snuck in an extra 5lbs today and I will do this once and a while. Going to be fun to watch the numbers increase over the next while.
