After a lousy Monday workout when I actually contemplated taking the rest of the week off, today was just the day in the box I needed. I went in shooting for a 200lb PR on the dead lift, 10lb heavier than my 1 rep pull on July 7th, just six weeks ago. Oh, and this is like my 4th real deadlift workout ever!!! The weight felt good this morning and the more I warmed up the stronger I felt. I did 190 easily, and pulled 200 next. 200 wasn't too pretty, but Jerry said it was good enough to go up some more. I just had to keep the bar closer to my shins on the bottom half of the lift.
The attempt at 210 was fun. the 6am crew was rolling in and after a little chit chat and cheering on Sean, I just went to the bar and pulled. It felt great and my form held! I definitely could have done 220, but my back is still a bit sore from the 'strength-con' last Tuesday. Check my facebook page for the video!
Worked the pullup kip with Keturah afterwards...I think my problems might have something to do with should flexibility, sigh. All I ask for is 5 pullups in a row--goal for that is Thanksgiving. My new DL goal is 250# by Christmas.
