05 Sep LCS 7 Weeks Out, Lost my squat; found my deadlift
Got to take the good with the bad. Huge deadlift PR for me. It definitely is feeling better. Why I never went hook grip before is beyond me.
There’s a small group of us that’ll be competing Oct 28th at the RPS Revenant Rising in Wilmington, NC.
Squatting was way off today. Stance was too narrow and just couldn’t get my knees out enough. Kept getting caught forward. Last week was much smoother. I’ll work on these problems next week. Deadlifts, well, the deadlifts went great. I won’t lie, I had a very strong idea of what I was doing going into this workout for the deadlift. I knew I was going to hit 605 for a double. Knew it. It was a big PR. My previous best was 585 for a double, and in full gear. This was briefs only. Pretty sure that’s how I’m going to have to roll at the meet. Not because I don’t like the suit, but I haven’t had nearly enough practice in it this training cycle. We’ll see. I’m not completely committed to just briefs yet but if it ain’t broke…
90%x1 x2 sets
Reverse band 95%x1 (was supposed to be 2 if I wasn’t deadlifting as well)
90%x1 x2sets (was supposed to have done this)
Instead I did 605×2. My best meet deadlift is 615. So take that for what it’s worth.
Just shut it down. There. I used to get greedy. Not any more. This’ll be the last time I go outside of protocol for this training cycle. I wanted this more than anything. I’m feeling good and just going to roll into it from here out.
