Thanks Jim. I'm all about not babying the bar on deadlifts anymore. Squeeze it off the floor yes, but then just rip it right on up. No mercy!
Huh, shrugs don't bother my back at all. The straps bother my wrists, though. Not liking that, but it'll get better as I get used to them.
HaHa KD! Had some major back soreness on Sunday!
Righto, JB. Bigger and stronger. Definitly bigger as I can not stop eating lately! I'm just gonna roll with it for now and not worry about weight. But NO crappy food though! I'm still going to keep everything as clean as possible.
Thanks Ravi and BtB. I do feel massively strong lately. Hope that continues.
Life got in the way today, so am pushing off everything by 1 day. Bench tomorrow and Squats wed. Might see how I feel and go right into bench Aux Thurs and deads Fri. If the squats wipe me out though, I'll skip thurs and lift Fri and Sat. We'll see.
I did find my next meet though. March 23rd. It's a "100% Raw" meet. That Federation puts on at least 4-5 meets a year in Virginia and most of them are at a place only 45 min from my house. Seems like a good event, a bit weird though in there's no squatting. Only bench, deads and strict curls if you can believe that. No chance I'm doing curls!
