Deadlifts: Feeling out the 1RM

Fri, 26 Aug 16

Deadlifts: 135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 365x3, 405x1

Did all my lifts sumo, and tried (for some stupid reason) to do a conventional deadlift, to see if it would fly off the floor.  Well, I started to come off the floor and pulled my left adductor.  I tried to pull a 425 sumo after and couldn't.  I'm not terribly disappointed as this is an improvement overall, and had I not pulled that muscle I might have hit the 425.  The only *real* issue I have with sumo is that it doesn't really lend itself well to grip and rip.

Sorry to ask you to verify, but the sunglass spammers have been going crazy.
