Lots of things to say about this. Got to discuss a few things with my mentor Eric about this. It was a very good session: the numbers are great. Workload was around 17000 lbs and volume was 62 reps in total for both. I was a bit upset with being able to pull 455 for 3 doubles - I wanted 5. But, I put on my number crunching hat and I realized that pre-injury I was pulling 455 after warm-ups amounting to only 7000 lbs whereas today I pulled 455 after 15000 lbs…so that is something. Ofcourse, at this stage of analysis paralysis I realized that trying to compare me now to me then is a waste of time.

So, to cut to the chase, today's workout was good. I failed on the first attempt (it's there in the video) on the 455 sets. I think I need to thicken up my middle back. It felt weak but that weakness may have been a one off thing or perhaps it was just momentary fatigue from everything before it or perhaps it was just that 455 is damn heavy for me right now. It's probably the last one.

I am debating, and this is something I need to consult with Eric on because I need his guidance, but I am debating shifting my training days around a bit. It's hard to think out of the box: I'm still a newbie at this lol. I'm figuring after Deadlifts the next day I'll do intensity work on Weighted Pull-ups, some Front Squats and Step-ups and then I'll replace my second Deadlift day with pure back training: volume work with pull-ups and then heavy dumbbell rows, cable rows, facepulls blah blah. I'm not a 100% sure because I think this is not really different from what I've done in the past. I'm not supposed to TRY to be out of the box but the solution to the problem is supposed to be out of the box: however this leads to the fundamental question of: IS THERE A PROBLEM TO FIND 455 A DIFFICULT WEIGHT TO MOVE?!?

At this stage..I do not know.
