I am usually a pretty laid back person... however today was a trying day for me and it felt great to pull some deadlifts. I managed to talk Mike T Nelson into come down to The Press to lift with Maura and I. Mike has a good eye and gives great feedback. Plus he is a level 4 Z Health guy. I am really looking forward to getting certified in March. I have to say I am starting to feel a little frustration not knowing how Z works.
Here is how it all went down (or should I say up)...
~Like I said... I wasn't having a five star day. I have no idea why I bothered to pull 225 when my plan was to pull 230 as my working set. Then I misloaded the bar with 245... cripe, what a 'tard. Despite all the goof-ups I managed to feel pretty good about the pulls. Mike gave me some great feed back, thanks Mike.
I believe this is 3 of 7 at 230
5 of 7 at 230
Low Rack Pulls
~Mike had to dig out early... Maura and I goofed around with some low rack pulls. Gary, helped us with the wrist wraps and technique.
This morning Angela and I had our regular Friday morning workout as well.
16kg - 30X2
VO2 Max 15:15 snatch with 12kg
40 sets, 7 reps per set
Angela and I were both pressed for time, so we only did a 25 minute workout... at least we did all 40 sets this time. I was feeling a little low on energy, so I was happy to do half as much as we usually do. I am looking forward to a short break from exercise this holiday season.
