Deadlift: 5×135, 3×155 + 5×185, 5×185, 5×215, 8×245
This was the first time I actually went all out on the last set of the core lift and all I can say is hot damn. All these felt great, no lower back strain, really felt it in the hamstrings and glutes when I squeezed up top. Nothing beats the feeling of knowing you’ve actually progressed and as a result gotten stronger.
BBB Deadlift: 5x10x145
Like Wendler warned, these are nothing to “sneeze” at. Got me breathing heavy. I took about 15-25 breaths between sets to avoid resting for too long. My hands stung from gripping the bar so hard.
Hanging Leg Raises: 3×5
These were a bit difficult. I’m going to have to rethink what to do for the additional assistance here. Doing actual hanging leg raises bothers my right shoulder.
2min. warm-up 2spd
5x1min. sprint 5spd
2.5spd until 1 mile
I’m going to steadily increment the number of sprint repetitions on my deadlift/squat days depending on how I feel at the end of the workout. I’m aiming for at least 10, 1 minute sprints by the end of the cycle. Afterwards, I’m going to increase the sprint speeds.
