    Deadlift Training
    Mesocycle 18 - Week 4

    Beginning Thoughts:
    The world famous comedian Maz Jobrani had come to my University tonight for a show and I decided to attend it. It was hilarious!!!

    Workout:
    Deadlifts:
    420 lbs x 2 reps
    430 lbs x 2 reps
    430 lbs x 5 reps
    Several things to note here. First off: my grip failed. The 430x2 set involved me holding the bar right from the get go using just my fingers. My thumbs just deserted me. My form was naturally hideous. So basically, my grip was an over/under hook grip. WTF??? I was prepared for this on my last set and therefore I think my form was WAY better on the 430x5 set. It could've been better but my grip failed me. I know why this is though: sometimes when you do lots of grip training, your body needs time to adjust to it - like a lag period. So hopefully in the next few weeks my grip won't slip away from me.

    Pistol Squats:
    3 + 3 = 6 reps
    I haven't done these in such a long time!!! I am gad I've been able to move my schedule around and fit them in. I will get better at them shortly. I want to hit 15 reps straight.

    Swiss Ball Jackknife Pikes:
    BW x 10 reps x 2 sets

    Hand Extensions:
    2 bands x 10 reps x 3 sets

    Deadlifts:


    My boy Paul Roa hit a 405 Deadlift for 2 as well!!!

    Overall Impression:
    Gonna go see Valentine's Day tomorrow with the gf and then Shutter Island on Saturday. I also have a ****load of studying to do this weekend...With this being the last semester at school and the ****ty condition of the job market I am becoming lesser and lesser motivated to excel at school. But, I know my hard work will pay off somewhere down the line. I hope.

    Have a fun Friday everyone and thanks for dropping by!!!
