A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Snowy morning... Fire in the stove... DEADLIFTS!!!

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - bar/12 reps, 95lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 275lbs/6 reps, 365lbs/6 reps, 455lbs/3 reps (with belt).

Power Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 4 sets/1 rep/550lbs.

Commitments today kept the work out short and sweet. 550lbs went up very easy on the first set but of course got more difficult with each additional set. Still, the last set was controlled and didn't cause much issue. Strength is coming back and I will for sure surpass my best from the 2012 Easterns when I step on stage at Nationals this year.
