WORKOUT OF THE DAY

110225 Friday: Deadlift x 1

By jerry29 comments

110225 Friday: Deadlift x 1

Plot to set a PR not match it.

If my PR is 415 and I want 425 I would go: 135×3, 225×3, 275×2, 325×1, 375×1, 405×1, 425×1

(I like a longer ramp-up, so this is 7 sets).

Remember once you get up to your last set or two take 5-6 minutes rest between attempts. If you set a PR, walk away and celebrate! If you miss a PR lets figure out your weak area and what special exercises we need to focus on to improve.

Compare to 101231

Compare to 101210

Alt wod: “Michael” 3 rounds of 800 run, 50 back extensions, 50 situps

    Also, according to Harold & Kevin, an unassisted pullup! I’m not completely satisfied with it, but will take it.

    Deadlift x1 – 315# then tweaked my hip on 335#…very frustrating. Great to see Durk though and share a bar. The girls at 9:15 were pulling heavy bars today!

    215. Tied my PR. Failed on 230 and 225, and I think even 220. Butt kept shooting up. Oh well.

    335 PR. Beat previous PR by 20 pounds. Felt actually not too bad. Thought about going higher, but decided it was a good day.
