There was a big crew of us deadlifting tonight. Anna White showed up with her friend Tammy Dian, an up an coming lifter in the 123's. Russ and Jesse were there. Of course Maura and Aaron were there. The two platforms were being used, so I had to set up my 35lb plate outfit on the floor, next to the squat rack where Gary Edwards was training squats. Here is how it went down for me...
Sumo Deadlifts off 35lb Plates
~245 and 250 were difficult, but doable. Here is something to look at...
~I cannot understand how anyone can move weight this way... it is a journey from the floor to lock out.
~225 and 275 were conventional, 315 sumo. These seamed much more difficult than last week, so I quit early.
~god... I hate doing isolated ab exercises. If it were not for Maura, I would have skipped this one tonight.
