Very good workout today August 20, 2007. Our goal for this session was to surpass the 160kgs low start deadlift we did last week. We will be attempting 165. The warmups were:
10repsx1setx60kgs - conventional stance
5x1x70kgs - low start from here on, two plates high
going up to 155kgs
The warm up sets were fast. I was feeling relaxed today and was thinking about the lift the night before. The 165kgs attempt was successful. Didn't feel any uneasiness. The key was the quick setup, and aggressive attitude. once setup is good and got my feet were it needs to be, I just pulled trying to get the pop off the bottom. It worked just liked it did last week. I took a 3 to 5 minute rest and coach added 5 kgs more. We would be trying to do another PR at 170kgs. Did the same routine and nailed the 170kgs again. I think this is the first time I did two PRs on the same training session. Thought I would not be able to lock it out but I got it.
