DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 40 Week 4

First off: A Merry Christmas to Everyone!!! :-)

I was going to train on Saturday as per usual but there was an emergency at work and I had to skip Saturday's training. So, Deadlifts happened today (Sunday) and Squats will be skipped this week.

Mobility Drills
135 x 3
245 x 4
295 x 5
345 x 3
385 x 3
425 x 2

Next week, I will work on holding this for longer time. The Paused Deadlifts @ Knees and @ Shins killed me.

Deadlifts:
505 x 1
Grinder..

I kept rest intervals very restricted. I've been losing the plot with these (for lack of a better phrase) and I've been taking 15-20 minute breaks and sometimes even 25. Thats a no-no. So, I'm back to 10-12 minutes.

DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 41 Week 1

This is going to be the last training update in this log. I'll be starting a new log for 2012. I've got a title name up my sleeve but I'm only going to reveal this once the new year is upon us.

In 2008, when I began training seriously, my training journal was called F=m.a. Actually, here's a breakdown on the titles I've kept:

2008: F = m.a
2009: Beached Whale Chronicles
2010: Big Boy Basics
2011: Tough as Nails / Deadlifts, Grip and Presses

Deadlift Warm-ups:
Mobility Drills
135 x 3
245 x 4
295 x 5
345 x 3
385 x 3
425 x 2
