10/3/13 Back day and my first actual deadlift workout. This workout was way too long, and that was with very few warmup sets. I think I am going to keep my deadlift set at 5 and reduce the rest of the workout to 3-4 sets per excercise. My weights and reps jump around a lot because I added in a couple of new excercises (plus the deadlifts) and am still searching for the right weights. On to the meat and taters!
275x5-form went all to hell on this set. Started pulling with my arms. I knew I was pulling with my arms, but couldn't control it. Next week I will do a good warmup and settle into 5 sets of five at about 240-250. I hope me deadlifts will quickly catch up to my squats.
Pendlay rowsI was going to do a simulated cable row to replace the Pendlay rows (last time I did Pendlays it felt like snap city), but I noticed the lat bar was cracked, so I did some cautious Pendlay Rows.
Lying cable curls-My first time trying these. I have a hard time finding anything that I can really feel in my biceps, but I felt these pretty good. I likes 'em! Should've done my DB curls first, though.
