505 x 2 x 2 MAX Deadlifts
This has been an emotional week to say the least. My car got broken into on Monday and my entire gym back got stolen. So I am using my phone camera to record these videos so please bear with the quality for now. I will probably rustle up the funds for a new handycam by next week or the week after. Additionally, as far as bad news goes, my current gym which has been my home for the last 4 years is shutting down in 3 weeks. I have to find a new place to train at that will allow heavy lifting, allow chalk and allow video recording. I do have some wild cards up my sleeve but I will hold on publicizing them till I have all my ducks in a row. I am very nervous and stressed and anxious about work, about this gym situation and about being robbed. So yes, this has been an emotional week.
As far as this workout goes: I am thoroughly pleased. I got 505 x 2 x 2 which is something I've been working towards for a while. What I plan on doing moving forwards is alternating this type of workout with a workout where I work up to 525 x 1 per cycle. My only regret in this is that I left 2 reps in the tank with 405 x 6 but that means I have room for improvement for next cycle so it all balances out.
