Training - Deadlifts

Weight - 248

Well I know I posted that I was going to take the week off but I called myself bad names in the mirror long enough that I ended up manning up and going into the gym and pulled.  

Deadlifts - 135 x 5, 225 x 3, 315 x 3, 405 x 3, 500 x 1, 550 x 1, 585 x 1, 605 x1, 550x3, 515x3

All these were smoked.  Super fast, super easy.  Thought about 620-630 but had a little twinge in my adductor on the 605 so I played it smart and just did the back offs after that.

Shrugs - 315 x 30

Pulldowns - stack + 15 x 14 x 6

Hammer Curls and Various Forearm work for the tennis elbow

Notes - Well I'm glad I went in because I had a great little session.  I think I'm going to split the squat and dead up for now to increase the volume on both.  My squats feel out of groove, like I'm not getting enough practice in.  Plus with this adductor strain I will need the volume.  The weight gain was nothing more than me overeating on carbs for the last 4-5 days.  We had a big UFC party and I ate two cakes over the weekend.  That's not a misprint.  


  1. "Hammer Curls and Various Forearm work for the tennis elbow" - what did you mean with this?

    Because I am affraid have tennis elbow too, so you think I should do some forearm work or the opposite :-) ??

  2. Yes do the forearm work. Dumbbell wrist curls, light hammer curls, light reverse curls, and then forearm stretches. Mine is getting better slowly with this.

  3. how did u feel about lesnar winning that fight lol
