I met up with our regular deadlift crew for a night of pulling fun! Shawn Friday even showed up ... hamstring is all better.
Maura and I had a go with the 45lb plates, after a whole cycle of pulling off a block. I wanted to test my max... or at least get close. I still have some work to do regarding my form and mental focus. I did manage to eek out a PR of 285lbs. Here is how it all went down...
~I had to pull 255 twice... the first time I was unfocused and giggly, not a good way to start a pull, LOL! The second attempt at 255, it flew up. The 285 pull was pretty tough off the floor. I know I have more in me... I know I need to work on my form. My plan is to work on visualization a little more. Here is something to look at...
~My hip thing started bugging me again. I did find a Z drill to help, but I called it quits after only two sets.
~I am finally starting to get rack pulls! For the first them they didn't totally suck!
I think I need a little more practice with heavy weights... most of my problem is simply expecting the weight to be heavy, fighting through it and not panicking. I am going to goof around with some heavier weights for a while.
