As the story goes of late, my oly lifts have been missing from the rountine. Couldn't even tell ya the last time I deadlifted heavy. November maybe? All I know my max is 227#. Was pumped for this until I put some weight on the bar. Having a quarter sized chunk of skin missing on your palm kinda messes with that underhand grip I use on my left hand for deadlifts. I had it all taped up, but it hurt like you know what.
Warmed up with a few reps at 45# and 65# just to get the posterior chain all warm. Pulled 135#, then 155#. My hand was screaming at this point. 185# hurt even worse. I wanted to pull 200# just to say I still could....I pulled it all right and even put it back down properly. The hand was now oozing...time to call it quits. We'll try this again after the hand heals. I could tell I just need to work the form again to make sure my body remembers what it is doing!
I have to say that one thing I really miss about home is being able to throw weights around. Lift them violently then throw them down. I could really use some of that these days with all that pent up anger, depression, and sadness I have going on...
