Saturday - Deadlifts #2

Since Tuesdsay I've had poisong Ivy. Because of the ivy, I've not slept well all week, causing me to become sick on Thursday and Friday. Waa Waa. Anyway, today I felt okay enough to try and deadlift. You can see in the video that I'm sniffling and trying pretty hard to get enough oxygen; and, despite being pretty dizzy, I managed to do well and pulled 375lbs for 11 reps. According to Wendler's formula , 375x11x.0333+375 =512. This was better output than my first deadlift workout in 5/3/1 with an output of 508 (355 for 13 reps).

Edit: I just realized the poison ivy was in effect for 2 weeks. That's a long time to not sleep. Ok, done with excuses...





My assistance work improved a bit too, getting one more pull-up than last time (10,8, 8, 7, 7). I'm still some trash at the leg-lifts and didn't increase their reps -- I'm still working on being able to do them with straight legs and getting them up high without any swing or shrugging of the shoulders.
