|Is this how you deadlift?|
I've finished my round of antibiotics and I'm feeling much better. Anyway, today was deadlifts and the last time for the year that I'll be doing under 4 plates for any final sets. I wanted to make it special! The weight for today, 400lbs, is the weight I had for week 3 way back when I started in cycle 1. On that day I had pulled seven reps...I wanted to annihilate that number.
Assistance work wasn't great, and has been on sort of a backwards slide for most of my workouts. I felt pretty much done after my final set, so I don't know if I just blew my wad completely or if I'm still a little affected from being sick. We'll see how it goes. I know Wendler says not to worry if your main lifts are going up and your assistance work isn't.
- Weighted pullups with +45 lbs for 5 sets: 6, 6, 6, 5, 5 reps.
- Ab Wheel: 5 sets of 10 reps.
Week 1 Deadlifts for 7 cycles have thus far been:
