I miss deadlifting. 🙂

It’s either been no deadlifting, or some variant like stiff-legs or sumo or deficits. It’s been ages since I truly did conventional deadlifts. And it feels good.

Today was very light, as to be expected from week 1 of the cycle. In fact, shrugs were silly…. 135 was so light, I got to 30 and just stopped because it was ridiculous. 🙂

But otherwise, just felt good. Kept a double overhand grip the whole time; I won’t go mixed until I need to. Worked on being explosive and really getting my hips to push-/follow-through at the end.

Feels good.

For my notes, BB curls are with a straight bar and a wide grip. Not excessively wide, but basically if I hold my arms (with no bar) down at my sides with my hands fully supinated, where do they rest, that width apart… grab the bar there. Before I was doing EZ-bar curls with my hands on the “inner” camber, so I figured for a few weeks let’s go straight bar and wider, giving more supination.

And in weight-news, yesterday weighed in at 221 (down 2 since Sunday). Too early to really tell, but so far that’s the preferred trend. 🙂
