Thought I'd start with yesterday's session, as it was a beast and I'm definitely feeling it today:
Usually I train on Monday, but due to the bank holiday (gym shut early) and the end of Reading Festival (swarms of dirty, smelly, tired people I did not want to experience) I shifted all my sessions up a day so ended up doing max effort lower yesterday.
After this I got a powerlifting buddy to wrap my knees, which hurt, but not too much (yet).
For my big final single we got someone else to warp my knees and OH. MY. GOD. This hurt like hell, 3 hours later and the back of my knees are still burning. Didn't quite manage the lift by myself, needed a little help from the back spotter, but it didn't help that I really struggled to get the weight out of the rack and I was slightly unbalanced when trying to hold the weight. Still, I gave it my all.

Trap Bar Deadlift
Woot, twelve plates! Really, really pleased with this as I've never done heavy trap deads before. Definitely easier that straight bar deads, although getting it off the floor was an absolute pain - the second it passes the knee it flies up, so such a different lift to the straight bar. Still, damn pleased with this and overall I MONSTER session.
