Deadlift Training
Mesocycle 19 - Week 2

Beginning Thoughts:
Running on 3 hours of sleep....Needless to say, I wasn't at my 100%.
Workout:
Deadlifts:
455 lbs x 4 reps
455 lbs x 3 reps
I was supposed to do 4 sets of 4 reps with an average minimum of 440 lbs for this workout in order to increase density from last workout which was a wee bit too much to say the least. Given my shitty diet and terrible sleeping habits of the previous night, that was not going to happen. Being a stickler for details, I figured with the low motivation and focus I had after 455x3, that quitting was a better idea that Deadlifting with zero focus. Therefore, 455x3 was the last set of the day.

Hand Extensions:
2 bands x 15 reps x 3 sets
Videos:
Deadlifts:
Overall Impression:
I wish I could catch up on sleep tonight but thats not going to happen. I gotta another big exam tomorrow. Today's Accounting Exam was pretty good.

Exams are a b!tch.

On the bright side, 455lb is nothing to scoff at.

Keep your head up.

Well, good news is that Spring Break has begun finally!

I am leaving for Dallas on Saturday. I'll be there all week next week but I am going to Las Vegas for 2 nights.

Tomorrow morning will have me doing my Back Training.

I hope everyone's had a good week. Mine has been very stressful. Too much going on in life with graduation literally just around the corner.

Thanks for dropping by!
