First deadlift session of the new cycle.

Deadlifts are fine. Sets of 10 are death. 🙂

The warmup and work sets of deadlift were fine. A little knee trouble so I wasn’t quite in the best position — I think I need to bring the little tripod and take some video. I hate doing that (I just feel awkward about it), but I think I should for the sake of technique.

Doing the sets of 10 were of course killer. But what really got me was supersetting in the upright rows — you don’t realize how much torso stability you need for upright rows, and after the death by 10’s you’re out of breath AND the torso is tired. I’ll keep it up for a bit in case this is purely a work capacity issue and I just need to toughen up here. But I also felt like I wasn’t getting the most out of therows because of exhaustion elsewhere. We’ll see.

Everything else was what it was. One big thing is remembering to crush-grip the bar in everything — especially on the stair calves, because that 32kg kettlebell with the fat handle is good for that. Heck, the sets of 10’s deadlifting were good too. My grip will thank me later.
