I definitely had a good but rough day at the home gym today. My strength today was to be heaviest squats, moderate strict presses and light dead lifts. I just reset the weights on those. I had failed the dead lifts last week. The squats were at 240. This to me is a moderately heavy weight. Today it didn’t feel heavy at all. It felt great for sure. My technique has so greatly improved it’s amazing.
If there is one thing that I can always count on after doing a WOD with either heavy or high rep dead lifts it’s the unsatisfied raging appetite. No amount of food seems to fill me up and no type of food does. My stomach just growls and growls. The WOD it self was 30 dead lifts and 20 burpee pull ups, three rounds of them for time. I chose the RX weight on the lower end at 165.
I am continuing with my starting strength and still going strong with the dead lifts. Last week’s dead lifts felt pretty slow and grindy.. Per the video the form was still good and saw no reason no to finish the set so I did but I strongly suspected this week would be the week I fail at the prescribed weight. Don’t get me wrong I was hopeful I would get through them but I kept the realistic expectation in the back of my mind that I’d have to discontinue and restart at a lower weight.
