Todayâ€™s eating was good, but I wasnâ€™t very prepared for meals. I sort of ended up just throwing stuff together.
I totally wasnâ€™t planning on working out today but when I looked at the CFCP blog and saw that we were dead lifting tonight, I couldnâ€™t pass up a chance to see where I stand. I have been wanting to know my one rep max for a while and tonight, I got a pretty damn good idea of what that is.
I had THOUGHT that my 3 rep max was 325. I was wrong. So as it stands, my FIVE rep max is 300lbs, my ONE rep max is 325lbs. I got that a few months ago when I worked out at the KF school with Ryon. Well, it WAS 325lbs until tonight.
Tonightâ€™s WOD was simply:
1 â€“ 1 â€“ 1 â€“ 1 â€“1 Dead lift.
I did more than five sets as I had some trouble finding my max. The weights for my sets were:
225lbs â€“ 295lbs â€“ 315lbs â€“ 335lbs â€“ 355lbs â€“ 365lbs â€“ 375lbs
After 375lbs, I gave 405lbs a shot just for the hell of it. I got it about 80% of the way but just couldnâ€™t stand completely up. Although I was slightly disappointed to not break 400lbs, I added a solid 50lbs to my dead lift. AMAZING! I am sure that my goal of dead lifting more than 400lbs isnâ€™t THAT far away.
I remember when I was dead lifting with Ryon, I could barely sustain my grip to lift 325lbs. Tonight, I didnâ€™t have that problem at all, even when I was trying 405lbs. My grip has gotten a hell of a lot stronger.
