DEADLIFT SESSION

Until the time I start my new routine I am just taking a couple of weeks and doing what I feel like and when. Today I wanted to rep some deadlifts up until recently I have only singled before. I ended up setting a PR for a single, as doing so is fun. What also made the day fun is ripping them off the floor. This is really some of the best advice I have ever received from Steve, LtL, and the crew. I remember just a few weeks ago Dave on the crew saw me fussing with my setup too much and told me at the time that that would be the last time I ever deadlifted like that. I was a little put off to tell you the truth, because I thought it was necessary to fuss at least somewhat to find the ideal hip position. My deadlifts have taken off ever since I heeded this bit of priceless advice. I have seen LtL do it for a long time but I was neither willing nor confident enough to do it until Dave on the crew insisted and ordered me to change. Truly this was the best deadlifting decision/adjustment I have ever made. It really works. Step up and rip gives me the confidence I can pull anything, makes it fun, and makes me feel like the strongest guy in the world, even tho I obviously am not.

Had my Mom's most cherished possession with me in the JimGym today - her 35th Birthday AA Medallion. It really does inspire and empower me.
