One key step closer.
Decided to get some heavy deadlifts done today, and after some encouragement from Judd I made my current PR the peak weight in my off-kilter pyramid.
305 x 1
355 x 1
405 x 1
380 x 1
330 x 1
It wasn’t an easy rep, but the bar came up. Maybe I will get that new PR this summer. (I also thought increasing the load difference between sets worked well. I need to codify when I use a 20lb difference as a base, or a 30, or 40, etc. But 50 was the right choice with loads this heavy.)
Then I went upstairs and did some rowing.
1k row – 4:31
Not awesome, but it’s the fastest time I’ve gotten in a year. It’s been a crappy year for my 1k rows, but still. Good day.
