I’ll chalk up today as a +10% day.

Last night I looked over things and set a goal of 3-4 reps. I hit 5 reps at 410#, which is a great rep PR; in fact, I felt like I could do at least 1 more (and still have some in the tank). However, I shut things down because arms.

All in all, it was a good day. The legs felt a little stiff at the start, but things got better as work went along. And the top set felt really solid. I hit my goal and felt so good I kept going.

The only thing that didn’t feel good was my arms. Normally deadlifting isn’t a problem, but things are irritated enough and I guess from gripping, the obvious tension in the arms, and then the impact when the weights hit the floor (the vibration up the arms) and yeah, it wasn’t too happy. Not horrible, but irritated nonetheless.

I’m starting to think about taking next week as an active deload. We’ll see how pressing goes tomorrow.
