4" block pulls -
650 is a PR at this block height so I figured what the fuck, I'll double it. But I've had a tremendously bad week, and gotten about 6 hours of sleep over the past 2 nights. I think on a good night the double is there.
Deadlifts - 550x3,3
Rehab Work for hip - 30 minutes
Notes - Stupid tired tonight. Mentally, emotionally, and physically drained. This has been a tough week. My mom is having heart surgery tomorrow and I have other things going on that have just drained me. I am satisfied to have pulled the PR on a week like this.
good luck with your mother's surgery paulReplyDelete
650 for 2 is there, shit happens.ReplyDelete
Best of luck with your mom. If my mom was having heart surgery I know how stressed I would be.
Keep up the good fight man.
Many thanks. Carrying as much of the cross as I can right now.Delete
Hope everything goes good with your Mom.
Hey bud, thanks a lot.Delete
Your Mom is in our prayers. Stay strong.ReplyDelete
i'll join you in the burden of carrying that cross. She is in my prayers starting this evening and until I hear otherwise. Good luck to her and your family.ReplyDelete
All the best man.ReplyDelete
On a totally unrelated note, the cookie monster's recent blog post gave me a supreme poignancy boner too.
It was pretty fantastic.Delete
Hope everything goes well with your mom.ReplyDelete
Your mother has been prayed for - all the best Paul.ReplyDelete
Congrats on the PR.
Hey Paul, great post, your 650 DL is looking fantastic; it's inspiration to get myself to the next level (which is currently faaarr below yours LOL). I need to find something at the gym that's 4" tall and start with blocked deadlifts...fuckit, I'll just bring in my own blocks...ReplyDelete
My thoughts and prayers are with you for your mom's surgery and recovery. I am a staunch believer in positive thinking; if you believe in good outcomes, you project that energy on others, and I'm sure that's what she'll need.
Stay positive and everything will turn out for the best.
Quick question though I normally deadlift with trap bar but I was wondering if since the legs are used more in the movement could this cause me to stall quicker on deadlift and squat?
I can't really answer that. Work it in and use it as assistance. So don't smother the workout with too much work on it. Then see how you benefit.Delete
Wishing you and your mother all the best and a speedy recovery.
Good luck wishes to your mother Paul. That double will come. Don't fret it none. RonReplyDelete
Not fretting it at all. And thanks Ron.Delete
