Default The Iron Ostrich Training Log

Haven't posted on here in a couple of years. Decided to start this log as the next step in reaching my powerlifting goals, should be easier to review and track my lifts. Currently 8 weeks out from a competition.

Sumo Deadlifts
165x2
200x2
240x2
275x2
320x2
350x2
385x1

Deficit Deadlift (Conv.)
165x5
200x5
240x5


Suspended Good Mornings (SSB)
45x10
110x8
125x8

Minimal assistance work today as energy levels were down.

Bodyweight is around 180-185lbs

Next week I will work up to my opener (405) for a double, straps down. Wasn't in the cards tonight. Haven't done narrow stance squats in over a year, going to use them more often to help with deadlift. Short workout as I started late tonight.

Good luck with your powerlifting prep.

I have to ask, is "Iron Ostrich" your nickname? Do you have really long legs? : )

What are your previous PR's?
Are you lifting at that 181 pound class?
