Today was good. Set 2 rep PRs

Last deadlift session felt crappy, but here I felt good. Things went up well, form was solid. But it’s still a little weird with the new starting position. That is, I used to set up with the bar lined up with the 4th-ish eyelet on my shoes, but now I’m about over the 2nd. It still feels way out there and as soon as I break the floor it feels odd, but it did feel more normal today (the first rep of the day was the only one that felt truly off). The bar path is overall straighter, so this is a good change, just have to get used to it.

2 rep PRs, on the top set and the last set. That’s nice.

On hypers, I was going to add weight but opted instead to ensure I was using better form. In this case, I have been just “moving”, but I really should be more explosive on the concentric and slow on the eccentric; I’m not always doing the concentric as good as I should. So that was the focus. Plus going from last week’s foot angle experiment, I tried alternating: toes out, toes in, out, in; alternating on each set.

Solid day. I’ll take it.
