Leg Day - Deadlift Volume

486x1 - Yes! 5 lbs off my all time PR of 491, but I weighed in at 178 today, so relatively speaking, this was more impressive.

Unfortunately, I tweaked my lower back on the 486, so I took a few minutes and just did bodyweight (not even the bar) deadlifts, hoping to pump some blood through my glutes and lower back where it hurt.

406x1, felt heavy - rested
406x2, still felt too heavy - bumped weight down

Normall, I'd do 5 sets of five in the 375 to 400 zone, but since my back wasn't 100%, I went down to 356.

356, 5 sets of 5 - these felt great

I didn't use a belt on the 5 sets of 5, I actually feel like I get better tightness in my core without a belt.


Hill Sprints - sprint up then walk down, takes about 1 minute per cycle.
6 x 10 second sprints
1 x 20 second sprint
