Ate all the carbs today, I wanted a monster evening session.

warmup: stretched out low back

Deadlifts (SABOs, long rests, no belt)

135 x 5
185 x 4
225 x 3
275 x 2
315 x 1
365 x 1
385 x 2
420 x 2
455 x 2
485 x 1
455 x 1

notes: The plan was to do five doubles at 385, but I was feeling froggy, so I kept going. When I went for a double at 485, the first one went so slow, that I stopped at 1, dropped the weight, and tried for another double. When the second set at 455 moved really slow as well, I know I was done with the main work. I guess a weight PR was not in the cards today. It had been just 3 days since my last DL PR, so I am not too upset.

My low back felt DONE after this, so I dropped the weights on the main assistance that followed.

5 inch Block Axle Deadlift (thick axle, Figure 8 straps, long rests)

385 x 1
385 x 3

notes: First time going even slightly heavy on Axle DL. I tried regular straps first, but that axle was just way too thick. Figure 8s fit great though.
