Hex bar deadlifts: 242x10, 332x5, 382x5, 422x3, 472x2, 482x1, 422x5, 332x10
Learned today that my trap bar only weighs 62 lbs, not 68. A little disappointed. Also, since I can't math when I deadlift I thought I hit 500 but was really only 482. (490 using the incorrect bar weight)
My cardiovascular system was definitely the culprit in keeping me from going higher today. I got a little dizzy at 472x2, but had to take a knee at 482. I was using straps, belt, and squat shoes. My muscles felt like they could have gone longer - the 482 was slow, but not a grinder. It simply overwhelmed my capacity to push blood to my brain. Did a couple of back off sets afterwards and called it a day.
