Came into work early for some Deadlifts. They felt good today.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 135lbs/6 reps.
Deadlifts - 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/6 reps, 405lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts - 5 sets/1 rep/495lbs.

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with light bands) - 4 sets/3, 4, 5, 4 reps/315lbs+light bands.

Core Work
Ab Wheel - 3 sets/6, 6, 8 reps.

A good, not great, Deadlift work out. I wanted to pull just over 500lbs but thick pumper plates kept me from putting any more weight on the bar. Oh well, it still felt good. The Pump Phase I drapped a light band over the bar and stepped on it. Nothing off the floor but lots at the top. A few weeks ago I tried out an ab wheel at home and I might have pulled a muscle in my tummy. Today they felt much better and I really like them.
