Wendler 5/3/1 program, cycle 18, week 2

  • Work Set – Deadlift (working max: 375#)
    • 1x5x150 (warmup)
    • 1x5x190
    • 1x3x230
    • 1x3x265 (work)
    • 1x3x305
    • 1x6x340 (rep PR)
  • Assistance – Deadlifts (speed)
    • 5 x 5 x 225
  • Assistance – Pulldown Abs (kneeling)
    • 2 x 25 x 110

All I know is, I’m treading in PR territory, so I wanted to really kick things. Last time I did 340 was 5 reps during cycle 16 and that was a true PR. Last cycle was 335 for 6 and 350 for 5. So next deadlift session, on paper, 360 should be pullable for 4 reps, tho yes I’m going to go for 5. 🙂 That’ll be a good PR. Tho oddly I want to do 365 just to have the nice round number as well as 3 wheels + a quarter, y’know? Stupid things….

Anyways, the assistance work was good. Kinda surprised that with little rest between sets, that 225 felt so light. But the goal was to move with strict form, quickly and explosively, and with a VERY solid grip (squeezing the bar in the hands to really work grip).

Onwards to a nice PR.
