Second session right after bench stuff.
JB, it was no problem combining these two days btw. If you wanted to make this a 3 day program, you could pretty easily.

As mentioned, I felt great so just pushed right into deadlifts. I was already warmed up, so what the hell. I expected a little drop off, but honestly I got stronger as I went along.

ANyway, big news is the rack pulls. I just crushed them. I have no idea why.

Knee High Rack Pulls:
4x 315, 335, 365, 385, 425!
2x 455!! WTF!!?

Stiff Deadlifts:
6x 225, 235, 245, 245 (didn't push last set, was doing these beltless and didn't want to do myself a mischief as low back was getting pretty well maxed out)

OK, I did these with the bar in front of my knees, not above, and it was pretty accurate to my form from the floor WHEN I KEEP MY HIPS DOWN! So clearly I can pull a hell of a lot more weight if I can figure out why I have so much trouble right at shin height and shoot my hips up.

Anyway, I'd say we don't need to work at this height anymore JB!

4x 335:
4x 365:
4x 385:
4x 425:
2x 455:

There you go. Was not expecting that! Don't know what to make of it either.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
