As I mentioned earlier I feel like my progress is accelerating. Here are two more big PR’s for me that happened back to back.
The first is a partial Jefferson deadlift. Working at about a 3/4 range of motion this is a fairly powerful position. I know I could have gone even higher and/or could have pulled a new record off of the floor. But I’ll save that for next time. I believe my Jefferson is going to become higher than my conventional deadlift.
Lately, I’ve been working on weighted chins. In this video is a bit of a struggling rep working with 110 lbs strapped on. Not perfect but I’ll count it as my chin just barely gets over the bar. This beat out my previous record of 105.
What’s my secret? Proper training for one.
And also focusing on recovery in a big way.
The funny thing is the next day after this I did a new volume PR in conventional deadlifting doing a total of 20 reps with 405 full range.
They say, “You can’t lift heavy two days in a row.”
I say BS! Learn how here.
