2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses

Post by _Wolf_ » Sat Oct 29, 2011 12:18 am

Hi Everyone,

This is my first log on this site.

I don't really like to spit out stats because they don't mean much. I've been training for about 7 years now with 4 of them being with a dedicated goal in mind: to get strong.

I'm not a Powerlifter.
I'm not a Strongman.
I'm not a Bodybuilder.
I'm a Strength Trainee.

I suffer from various shoulder injuries as a result of which I generally avoid Bench Pressing for the most part. My goal is to have a strong Deadlift, a strong Grip and a strong Overhead Press. I've been a Corporate Slave for the past year and some months - but I have recently joined a new start-up in the Oil & Gas sector. My work hours tend to go crazy from time to time so training sessions are missed.

My template can be found on Ground Up Strength out here: http:// www. gustrength. com/forum/t-400160/ashiem-s-template (remove the periods)

I will begin posting my training updates from this Saturday. My updates usually have videos and such.

I'm not sure how to post links but this is my last video from Wednesday this week and y'all can use this to find my channel on YouTube:

Remove the periods out there as well lol...

Have a fun start to the weekend, everyone! :)

Okay. I don't have any issues with people posting here or anything but if that is the way this forum is set up where I need to create a comments section then I will do so :)

DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 39 Week 1

This is from last night…

Deadlift Warm-ups:

135 x 3
245 x 4
295 x 5

Crazy..

Kanishk graced us with his presence and managed to Deadlift quite a bit. He hit upon Double Progression with his added set of 255x8 and 295x3. Great work.

Kaizzad also managed to Deadlift 500. Awesome.

As for me, I beat my Rack Deadlift numbers from last week and this marks the end of the 5th week of my 14 week cycle. Next week is a DL maintenance week. I'm probably gonna work up to 500 and then either go home or do some more singles. After that week, we have 2 weeks of Deficit Deadlifts as the DL variation coming up.
