Happy Halloween!!! Today I went to the dungeon for some Deadlifts. Yes I know, frightening.

Warm Up
Extensive warm ups today. Still very tight from Squats.
Leg Swings, Foam Rolling, Stretching.
Squats - bar/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/4 reps.
Deadlifts - 120kg/4 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts - 3 sets/1 rep/170kg (really focusing on technique and form), 3 sets/1 rep/225kg (trying to maintain the previous form with the heavier weight).

Pump Phase
Kettle Bell Swings - 35lbs/12 reps, 55lbs/16 reps, 55lbs/16 reps.

I widened my stance a bit for the last set of kettle bell swings. Not very much, about a foot width wider. I would like to get back into pulling sumo but I am overly cautious. The flooring today was a bit slippery and I didn't want to wreck something. Now to eat and wait for the kids to come home for Halloween.
