2011-11-04 workout

Didn’t do jack, other than set a great PR.

“Week 3”

  • 5/3/1 – Deadlift (working max: 285#)
    • 1x5x115
    • 1x5x145
    • 1x3x175
    • 1x5x215 (work)
    • 1x3x245
    • 1x8x275 (PR)

Due to time constraints, I pulled an “ain’t doing jack shit” variant today. I also figure that’s better for me because I haven’t slept well the past couple nights and need the recovery. Glad the weekend is ahead.

The deadlift set just felt awesome. My head wasn’t cluttered with anything… nothing positive, nothing negative, and wasn’t really even thinking about the lift. Last night I started to think about it but just put it out of my head because it will be whatever it will be. Today, it just “was” and I set one heck of a PR with it.

I attribute the 8 reps in part to the mixed grip on the last set. That helps a lot. I actually felt like I could have done 9 or 10, but just stopped for whatever reason. Err on conservative I guess, since I need the recovery.

Come. Set PR. Leave. Felt good.

    • Thank you.

      I’m not going to consider things serious just yet. I mean, I know it’s more than your average Joe can move, but I’m not happy yet. When I can join the 1000# club, I’ll start feeling better about my poundages. Give me another year or so. 🙂
