A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Friday, January 17, 2014


Again my schedule is busy and I had to combine training the students today with Deadlifts. I'm glad I did. Working out with the kids was fun and inspiring.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps, 135lbs/8 reps.

Working Sets
Deadlifts - 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps, 405lbs/4 reps, 495lbs/2 reps, 550lbs/2 reps.

Not a whole lot of volume but I managed an amazing personal best with pulling 550lbs for a double. The first rep went up so quick and easy. The second wasn't much more difficult.

Hey Snowdaddy, I came across your thread whist searching for info on Doug Hepburns singles program.

I noticed that your using the Hepburn method but instead of training the lifts twice a week your training the lifts just once how are you finding this ?

As I am constantly pushing my max rest is just as important as the training. I could not imagine training like this twice a week.
