|hodie fortuna mihi favit.|
The soreness this cycle has been incessant, but that's due in part to some of the new stretches I've been doing. As a result, going in to today's lift my hamstrings were en fuego. No worries, I still put up a good lift. On a side note, today was the first time doing deadlifts that my grip has been taxed and I felt like I wasn't going to be able to hold it for the entirety of the final rep. Not sure if I should be worried about that or not. The clips also fell off at about the third rep. I was certain the weights were going to come flying off; luckily they stayed on. Oh yeah, and I've nearly doubled the reps I can do since the last time I deadlifted 400lbs (5.16.11 - 400x7)!
Assistance work: weighted pull ups (+45lbs) 7,6,5; unweighted pullups: 7, 5. Ab wheel: 5 sets of 10.
Goals for today:
