have been super busy lately doing job competitions. But I decided it was time to do some gym.

late night Friday DLs

Deadlifts (speed, short rests, SABOs)

135 x 3
225 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3
310 x 3

notes: the ORIGINAL goal was speed. I immediately found out my back was sore, especially the low back when I went for lockout. So they kinda ended up being normal speed, LOL.

Axle Deadlifts – 5 inch Block Pulls (extra thick axle, straps, long rest)

335 x 5
335 x 5

notes: the straps weren’t long enough, and the axle was too thick. I could barely close my hand around the bar, and the strap was so tight it felt it was yanking my hands off. I needed 15 min in between sets just to get the color back in my hands, seriously. it was not good looking. it kind of fried my grip, ironically

Snatch Grip Deadlifts (short rests)

275 x 4
275 x 8
275 x 6

notes: still experimenting with my foot placement, grip width, and speed of lifts

Widegrip Pulldowns (short rests)

180 x 10
180 x 15
180 x 13
180 x 9

notes: I was fading pretty hard by this point, and my performance was suffering.

DB shrugs (short rests)

110s x 10
110s x 10
110s x 10

Farmers Walk – Static Hold

160 per hand held for 35 seconds

notes: my grip felt fried, so I just wanted a finisher

10, 10, 10
