Felt Squirrelly.  Felt like giving my deadlift a title shot. Was also going to be using my thumb again. Showtime.

warmup: rumble rolled upper back, lats; prone spinal twist, passive low back release (waterfall against the wall, happy baby pose against the wall)

Deadlift (Sabos, generous rests)

160 x 5
200 x 5
240 x 5
*belt on*
315 x 1
380 x 1
380 x 1
415 x 1
445 x 1 Weight PR

notes: great success! Thumb was doing its job. Low back started off quite stiff, but as soon as I pulled 380, the pain went away, my whole back clicked into place. It was a good sign. Last time I pulled this much was 440 in November. 445 wasn’t pretty, lockout was a struggle, but I did it.

15 plates x 12
16p x 12
17p x 12

notes: strength was still there, had a good night with the rows as well.

Didn’t feel like cardio so just celebrated my PR by going home LOL
