  • deadlifting!

    good day at the gym this morning!

    did a 5x5 of barbell deadlifts this morning. started around 205 and did my last set of five reps at 295.

    i'm looking to get to a one-rep max of 400 pounds for a challenge in may.

    we do primarily kettlebells at my gym, so previously i had only been deadlifting around 212 at my heaviest (2x48kg.. the heaviest bells in the gym) so i'm pumped.

    woo.

        Nice. I'm also looking to break into the 400+ range. I hit 345 a few weeks ago but missed 365 today. AH! The frustration!

        Seriously, no lift is as awesome as a deadlift. It's just you and the weight (the really, really big weight).... It's primal.

          Nicely done. Did you stop after each rep, or was it touch and go?

            i always reset briefly after each rep. i don't try to bang deadlifts out too quickly since i want to keep my form together.
