I had to cut things short because I had an early appointment to make.

but even in that, again I think I’m losing it because I could feel “loss” in my reps. Ah well.

So deadlifts. Overall went well. Instead of just doing the movement now, I’m feeling more in the groove and thinking more about form, refining that. So that’s a good sign. I opted to AMRAP it on the last set, which I liked. I think I’ll keep that as it gives me some measure of progress (or regress).

Everything else tho, I cut “in half” so I could get out the door. And I did other “time-saving” things like I was taking no more than 60 seconds between sets AND between exercises; hammer curls I usually alternate but did simultaneously, etc..

Oh on the shrugs. While the 275 seemed more proper for the low reps, boy… I sure didn’t WANT to deadlift that again into position. 😉 What I might consider doing is shrugs as I exit deadlifts, so on that last deadlift rep, shrug a bit, then strip and shrug the rest of the way. But I dunno… I may be too pooped. The 8 I did on the AMRAP set, yes I had a couple left in the tank, yes I left it when I started to feel like form was breaking… so to then tryt o hold it and shrug? dunno. we’ll see.

One thing that’s been interesting is my evolving thoughts on my post-Defattening-Project program. I’m refining it some. I’ll write more later. 🙂
