|I lift in a bar from the 80s.|
Grip failed me today. It failed on my First set of 355 (pre-chalk) and on my last set of 455lbs. Anyway, Today's final set called for 450lbs, which marks the +50lbs on weight added to deadlifts since I started 5/3/1. Unfortunately, my gym has these comically large clown plates that take up too much room on the bar so I couldn't actually fit all the little plates it takes to get to 450lbs and I had to go up to 455. Also, I blew it with the recording again today since I got chalk all over the lens. Speaking of chalk, I was told (after 6 months of lifting at this gym) that I'm not allowed to use it anymore. Time to quit my membership there.
- 5 sets of weighted (+45lbs) wide grip pull-ups: 6, 6, 6, 6, 5 reps
- 5 sets of ab-wheel.
Goals for today:
Progress on week 3 deadlifts after 7 cycles thus far has been:
