I didn’t really feel good today. I woke up early to take my grandparents to the eye doc. My grandfather has to get his eyes dilated and well, he can’t really drive after that, so I was their humble driver.
I got home and worked for a while, then I just didn’t feel good. My stomach hurt, I was tired, I felt very blah. I didn’t feel like doing anything physical tonight. At any rate, I sucked it up and decided to go to class (also b/c I had to bring V’s bag of clothes hehe).
There was almost no one there tonight b/c of the UT game. Whatever.
The workout tonight was:
- 3 – 3 – 3 – 2 – 2 – 1 Dead lifts
- Tabata Pull ups
Both V and I hit PRs tonight on dead lifts. This stuff is really paying off and there’s no better way to gauge it than “I can lift heavier shit than 5 months ago”.
My sets looked like this:
- 1) 315lbs
- 2) 325lbs
- 3) 335lbs
- 4) 355lbs
- 5) 380lbs
- 6) 405lbs
- 7) 410lbs (this was a bonus b/c I didn’t really have much problem with 405lbs).
I have a feeling that I could have maybe bumped it up a but more, but I was starting to get fatigued and I didn’t want my form to suffer. There will always be a next time. It’s only January and I have already surpassed my goal for a 405lb dead lift. W00t!
Needless to say, my grip was shit when we got to pull ups. I got 36 in over 8 20s sets. Ouch.
