Deadlifts. Week 2 Cycle 9

So last deadlift workout I decided I would just do the prescribed reps since it had been over a month since I deadlifted last and also because I was starting to work dead-stop deads instead of touch-and-go.Anyway,  today I decided to try for more than the prescribed reps (3+ day) and I picked 7 as the number I wanted to hit -- that's exactly what I got. I may have had one or two left in me, but I am trying to be good about leaving one or two in the tank.

Goals for today:



515x1 (testing another submaximal single, last one for a while. This was very easy, too)

Assistance work:

6 sets of front squats @ 275x1 supersetted with weighted chinups for three reps at 90lbs.

Cycle 1 Week 2: 375x11
Cycle 2 Week 2: 385x11
