Friday’s is always my deadlifting day. I like having it at the end of the week so I can recharge throughout the weekend. They’re a whole body exercise and really taxing when going heavy so I’m usually pretty tired the rest of the day when I do them.
Thursday I had a huge carb load so I was hoping to make some progress in the gym Friday. I also added rack pulls to my routine to work on grip strength and lower back.
New deadlifting PR: 160lb x3, then 185×1(!!!). If my grip weren’t shot at this I might’ve been able to pull another one. I think I was just so excited I put the weight down and didn’t reset and try again.
Rack pulls – first time really doing this exercise besides just loading up the bar for deadlifting: 200lbs x 1
Have you set any PRs recently?
