Deadlifts, what is wrong with me?

Thurs, 29 Sep 16

RDL: 225x2x5
Conventional deadlift: 225x2x5, 275x5, 315x3x5, 365x2, 365x1
OHP: 95x10, 115x5, 135x5, 155x5, 175x3, 195x2, 205x1

Since I can't compete anymore I thought I'd try conventional deadlift to see where it was it.  In the toilet is where it was at.  My quad injury from the other day really didn't hamper me after the first two plate warmups, but my back was horrible fatigued.  I think it was from screwing around with seated good mornings and a bunch of other upper back work yesterday.  I'm sure I can deadlift more, and maybe I will save them for home on the weekend. 

Since my back was toast I figured I'd try some OHP to see where that lift was at.  Managed to get up to 205 - I got dizzy after racking it and had to take a knee.  I've started a new blood pressure medication and that may have been a contributing factor.  I should have hobbled over to the BP machine in the gym and checked it right then.  Oh well.

I'm not sure where I stand with squatting tomorrow - that quad injury is still present, so I may pass on it and do a bit of light pumpy work to aid recovery.  Next week I think I'll dial back my work sets in everything slightly and take another run up against the maxes.  I'm getting to the point where I'm starting to get a few injuries a week - which suggests it's too much.
