A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Deadlifts have been offering me a bit of frustration lately. Usually Deadlifts feel strong and are my "reliable" lift. Not so much lately. Today I deviated from my scheduled training to test my limits. I am neither pleased, nor not pleased. I still need a lot of work. Lucky I still have two months till Nationals.

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Deadlifts - 70kg/6 reps, 70kg/6 reps, 120kg/4 reps, 120kg/4 reps, 170kg/3 reps.

Power Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 220kg/1 rep, 250kg/miss, 250kg/1 rep, 230kg/1 rep, 230kg/1 rep.

Pump Phase
Deadlifts (with belt) - 3 sets/3, 4, 6 reps/170kg.

250kg is not a bad lift but I want so much more. I raised the Pump Phase by 20kg. They felt great. Keep up the hard work.
