Pulling 4 Wheels Again

My hamstrings are a little tight today and once I jumped on the rower in the warm-up I realized my lats and chest are sore too.. Maybe all that time away from squats helped me to start actually using my hamstrings and posterior chain during this rebuilding.

Warm-up

2 Rounds

  • 1:00 Row
  • 5x
    • Inchworm
    • 2 Push-ups
  • 10 PVC Passes
  • 10/10 Single Leg Deadlifts (44#)

Strength

Deadlift

  • 10×45#
  • 5×135
  • 5×205
  • 5×255
  • 3×305
  • 1×335
  • 1×355
  • 1×375
  • 1×405

Three weeks ago I did 3x3x335, but March 15, 2017 was the last time I picked up anything heavier than that with 4×405. I don’t like to make a bigger jump at the end like the 30 pounds after taking a couple of 20 pound increases, but I really felt like hitting 4 wheels (even if I had all kinds of change on the bar). Once I get the bar moving it feels really good, but that’s always been my feel with deadlifts. The bar was so packed with random plates I had to have Steve and Ashley hold on the plates!

Seeing the video it looks 10x easier than it felt.

Conditioning

18:00 EMOM (alt)

  • 18 cal Row
  • T2B (15 for 3 rounds and 12 for 3 rounds)
  • 12 HSPU

This felt good until I hopped on the 4th row and couldn’t get over the 1,500+ cal/hour I had been pulling. Was able to keep getting the 18 calories before the 50 second mark though. I did three rounds of 3×5 T2B, but started to lose it in the 4th round so scaled back to 12 reps for three rounds. Handstand push-ups weren’t bad and I was able to do 7-5 every round.
