Spent yesterday traveling, then hit the gym today. Luckily the gym in which I'll be training for the next 9 days is quite well equipped, and powerlifting friendly. They even have boards and chalk. I decided to do a little deadlifting and see how my shoulder would hold up.
45x a bunch
Add squat suit and belt, straps down-
Speed pulls, raw-
315+thick band for 5 singles, rest-pause.
Awesome session. The gym was well equipped and almost completely empty since we trained in the early afternoon. The plates they had were coated in rubber, just soft enough that I could lower my deadlifts a little faster and not tire myself out by lowering them slowly like at home. This is what I credit as the reason I was able to pull a new PR today.
My shoulder held up extremely well, and felt good throughout it's ROM once it was warmed up. I'm going to do a little pressing in my next session, but I'm going to take it slow and use my slingshot to protect my shoulder.
I can't wait to squat in this gym, with a real power rack. They have good bars too. This is going to be fun.
Current PRs at 242, raw w/ wraps- 525, 355, 605, 1485
