135×5 <-- Metal Deadlifter w/straps down 225x2 315x1 405x1 <-- add belt 495x1 <-- straps up 585x1 655x1 655x1 45° Hypers w/doubled light band 3x10 ea. rep held at top GHR sit-ups w/medicine ball - 3x15 Tonight was my last heavy deadlifting before AWPC Worlds and I will only do DE deadlifting the rest of my training cycle. All of my deadlifts were fast and felt good. Several members of our crew commented on the speed of my pulls. They have seen me deadlift a lot in the past, so I take this as a good indicator of my speed improving. I tweaked my back a couple Fridays ago and the Monday following that I squatted in gear. The reverse bands squats aggravated my back and it bothered me for a little short of a week. My back felt fine pulling tonight and seems to be 100%. Pat Roberts coached my on my form and it was a big help. I have a bad habit of keeping my head down. I was able to correct this on my last two pulls. The Velcro straps I had put on my Metal Deadlifter have made a big difference and I am able to get down to the bar and setup better. I used the suit for the first time at Seniors due to sending it off too late. My third deadlift at Seniors, I had Erik tighten the straps so the were snug and I have not adjusted the straps since. With the way I have the straps currently adjusted, they are expanded 3 inches longer.
