A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

I'm not feeling the endurance today. Power was there, just not much of it. I suppose taking it a bit easy at this stage of the game is not a bad thing.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Paused Squats - bar/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 295lbs/6 reps, 385lbs/5 reps, 475lbs/3 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 2 sets/1 rep/575lbs.

The second single was difficult but manageable. I didn't have enough left in the tank to try for a third. Time for the Pump Phase.

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with belt and medium bands) - 1 set/3 reps/575lbs (410 to 475lbs)

The tank is now empty. The first single Power Phase flew off the flow. EASY!!! So I'm not disappointed. 575lbs is my competition opener.
