Well that was pretty much as hard as I thought it would be. Form needs to be more consistent over the course of the set. Some reps I kept the bar nice and close and some I let it get a bit forward on me. I can get away with it at this weight but as the weeks go on and the weights go up, I won't be able to.

To then do more pulls afterwards was hard. Weight felt light but I had to concentrate really hard on getting tight to make it easy. Great combination.

Ghetto safety bar and super deep squats kicked my a$$ but I sacked up and used the proper weight for the last two sets. More GHRs and abs to finish. All done in around 90 minutes and a horrendous hamstring pump. Good times. I love the deadlift volume on this. It beats me up badly but I feel like I am working to improve my pull which is good.
