Deadlift: 5×100, 5×140, 3×160 + 5×190, 5×225, 11×250 Rep PR
Crushed the deadlifts today. Looks like I’m back into the swing of things. Yesterday’s press day was definitely off- my head wasn’t in the right place. Alternating grip on the last set.
BBB Deadlift: 5x10x145
Felt relatively light. I also used the belt on every set here. I touch and go’ed all the sets. The latter sets I would do a quick 5-rep, pause, then finish the set. The one thing I don’t like about doing touch and go is that I end up performing more of a straight legged deadlift as opposed to a regular deadlift. I tried to quickly drop my butt after each rep so that I was engaging my hamstrings each time and not pulling with a straight leg.
10 x BW + 10 x 10lb Weighted Sit-ups
25 x 25lb Side Bends
10 x Lying Leg Raises
6 x Kneeling Ab-Wheel Roll Outs
My core was pretty shot from the deadlifting. I could barely keep my body rigid on the ab wheel roll outs- my back would just buckle in. Weighted sit-ups don’t feel as terrible anymore compared to the first few times I did them.
3min. 2.5 spd warm-up @ 10% incline
4 x 1min. 5.0 spd sprints with 1min. rests @ 10% incline
7.0 spd sprint to 1 mile mark @ no incline
Left knee was feeling scarily unstable. Felt better later.
