HEAVY DEADLIFTS FOLLOWED BY HIGH REP BODYWEIGHT TRAINING. Good work, feel free to post DL #s in comments.
Due to pour addition skills while heavy lifting my sets went as follows:
I attempted 254 (I think) but it wasn’t going to happen. Probably lack of sleep and the pour weight progression.
As with any deadlifting class, this was a great one. But pourly attended by the ladies of CFDC.
Sara, are you British or something? Haha, like I should talk about spelling, anyways great lifting. IO knew you would get the 246 (that you thought was 234).
haha…. I guess my brain is still a little off today…. notice I did it not once but twice. LOL
Hey Tom, Are you telling me you knew it was 246 before I started lifting it and you didn’t tell me???
Yes, I knew. And I was confident you would get it! However, that didn’t leave much (any) in the tank, and I shouldn’t have pushed you to go much heavier. I wasn’t worried though, as I have confidence in your technique, so a no go was safe.
I made it back for my first CFDC class since Feb. 2. 🙂 Between Feb. 5 and Feb. 12, snow shoveling was my main WoD.
My deadlift sets consisted of5 x 138 kg (~304 lbs.),5 x 150 kg (330 lbs.),5 x 168 kg (~370 lbs.), and3 x 175 kg (374 lbs.).
After the met-con, I attempted to do 3 x 184 kg (~405 lbs.), but I think my upper body was a little fatigued from the met-con workout.
My deadlifts felt good. I believe a mini-layoff helped me out in this case.
To echo Sara’s comment: Heavy deadlifts rule!
CFDC’s own ODB…will be in Tuesday’s (Feb. 16) class.
