Deadlifts (405x5x2)

Weds, 3 Oct 18

Hack Squats : 135x10, 225x5
Deadlifts : 315x5, 365x5, 385x3, 405x5x2

I upped the sets on the top end of the deadlift and kept the hack squats in the workout.  They do seem to help get the hamstrings and glutes warmed up without fatiguing me too much.  I'm typically quad dominant, so anything to engage the glute-hams more will help.  I believe that's also why they tend to be an injury target (although I'm not a doctor or scientist), because my front and lat quads can manage the load up to a certain point and THEN the hams engage, as opposed to from the start.  At least, that's my theory.
