Another deadlift party at The Press Gym on Friday night. Fun Stuff! So, I have some homework from Rif regarding my deadlift. I need to connect with the bar more... more tension going into position before I pull and more tension in my lats... concentrating on squeezing the weight up. So, here is how it all went down...
245lbs.; singles, set 3
245lbs.; singles, set 4
~a little better lat action...
~I know... that was a lot of warm ups. Aaron and I arrived early, and I was anxious to get started, so I pulled a little more that I planned. I pulled conventional up to 205, then switched to sumo. My focus was connecting with the bar and engaging my lats more. The new movement felt great until I got up to 245... then suddenly the pull felt weird and I had to gun it again. I will have to wait until after the tsc to work on fixing that.
Conventional Deadlifts off a Block
~My homework given to me by Rif was to do rows off the floor. I treated these conventional kind of like rows off the floor
3 reps by a lot of sets... maybe 8?
I was planning on practicing snatches with Aaron and Sean. However, I ate a half of a pizza before coming to the gym. Not a great idea, but I was really hungry for some carbs. I did some extra swings and snatches to work off the damage I did with the pizza today with my class. LOL!
