I just wrote last week how my deadlifts have been going way up. But this is getting ridiculous…
I ended up doing deadlifts once again. Started with 365 for 8 reps.
Went to 415 for a triple.
And ended with a 440 lb. deadlift.
I could’ve kept going but was fine to stop there. At least as far as the deadlifting was concerned.
Riding on the high of setting a new max only 9 days after my last one I started bending. It felt good. After a couple Grade 5 bolts were crumpled I took a step up.
A 5.5” Grade 5 bolt. Half an inch shorter than the standard ones. This was not so easy. Took a bit of a battle but I was victorious.
To quote George Samuelson, “This feels like cheating.”
