Ashman – Deload deads and bench

** Lateral Dumbbell Raise **
– 50.0 lbs x 30 reps
– 15.0 lbs x 20 reps
– 50.0 lbs x 30 reps
– 15.0 lbs x 20 reps

– 15.0 lbs x 20 reps

To clarify the DB Laterals I did these Mountain Dog style. Start with a heavier weight, do partial reps and finish off with full reps at a lighter weight.

Partial movements have their place in lifting.

You are probably thinking why I deload with more volume than I should. Well when the main lift feels like hell, I tend to stick to the reps on everything else because I want to. I only do a full deload when the main lift is up around 85% with working weight. May not work for you, but I prefer it that way for me.
