How I love the Deadlift. who knew this would be the case. Especially if you read one of my older posts from 1972. Where my working Deadlift weight was 125 lbs. If ever inspiration was needed, must remember it’s really quite something to go back and read these posts, from not even one year ago. Super helpful when I let myself get down and convince myself of something ridiculous like I’m not making progress. Horse Sh*t.
Completed: with the most awesome strong person ever, Kim. Didn’t think I could meet her strength, but hung in there at 195 lbs. for round 1, then 215 lbs. for rounds 2, 3, and 4. That’s 6 reps per round. At what only 2 months ago used to be my 1 Rep Max. Progress over horse sh*t. Dean said this word to me today. Horse sh*t. In response to my tentatively not being able to do the Westside Powerlifting 6 week training class. Horse sh*t, he responded. I agree.
II. 8 Minute AMRAP:
4 Hang Power Cleans (155/105)
Completed: 6 rounds total. Scaled to hand release pushups, and 75 lbs. on the Cleans. Mmmm… could have maybe pushed to 85lbs., but was feeling rather weak and starry eyed. Decided to get in the reps rather than pass out. Decisions. Decisions.
