Wooo-eeee that felt good. Good to be home, good to be back in my space :)
Slept in a bit this morning and got back to my cozy lil' gym. It's so funny how I feel so connected there, I feel out of my space when I work out someplace else, and I never feel like I get as good of a workout.
Anyway - Week 1 of 5-3-1 for Deadlifts today, plus the rest of my workout. Here's how it went down folks!
Warm-up RDLs: 5 x bar, 95
Sumos: 3 x 135, 1 x 165, 1 x 195
Work sets: 5 x 205, 5 x 220, 5+ x 235
Here's that 5+ set, I managed 11 reps @ 235
I probably had another in me, but form was suffering badly and just getting worse, so I stopped :)
Box Squats: 5 x 5 @ 110
RDLs: 10 x 135, 8 x 165, 6 x 185, 5 x 205
Vid of the 135 set:
On the last set with 205, I started losing my grip. I knew this, but I could hear Myles chastising me for not using my straps in my head, so I was all like "yeah yeah I can DO this without them!" all stubborn like and stuff...and well YEAH, I did them. Had to set it on the floor after 5 and oh la laaaa....lookie there Mr. Blood Blister underneath the callous on my hand! Ewww...giant mound of blood under a thick callous = gross ;)
So I got a bandaid (in case it popped) and kept on through my workout:
Face Pulls: 3 x 10 @ 90, 100, 110
Cable High Rows: 3 x 10 @ 120
More ewwwwww! Cleaned it out, got another bandaid...needed to finish up :)
Leg Extensions 3 x 15 @ 65
Lying Leg Curls 3 x 10 @ 30 (last set @ 20)**
Standing Calves 4 x 12 @ 120
Back Extensions 15 x BW, 15 x 10, 15 x 25
Done! While I'm not sore, that was a most excellent workout.
Tomorrow might be a different story :)
** Lying Leg Curls - I tried these in a different way and needed to keep the weight REALLY light, and obviously, had to drop that last set to get it done! Really gonna feel those tomorrow
