Deadlifts (385 max)

Fri, 10 Nov 17

Deadlifts: 225x2x5, 315x2x5, 365x5, 385, 315x5

First day deadlifting "heavy" in a while.  I've had very few sessions since the beginning of my injuries this year, and have been a bit timid.  I worked my way up to 385, same as last time I deadlifted heavy before injuring my calves, but didn't have to grip in me to hit 405.  I didn't want to use straps on the big singles as I don't like the way it exposes me at the start of the lift.  I'd much rather walk up, take a few big breaths, tense, grip and rip.  

When I was done the main event I did a few holds at 405 to work on my cardiovascular system.  I did them just below the knees, off the pins, so that I still had to load up my legs to lift.  I was just trying to expose the hamstrings less. and concentrate on being able to smoothly lock out and hold.
