6-15-14 – ME Lower Body, Deficit Deadlifts

New day, new cycle, new program, new everything. I was beyond pumped to final come back into HPF after not being able to come in for almost an entire week. Finally, I was able to catch a break from work, and I get sick, thus keeping me away from HPF Friday and Saturday. Today, I did not care if I was sick, I didn’t care how I was feeling. I knew from when I woke up, I am going to the gym for my max effort deficit deadlifts. I’ve done very little deficit workouts before, so it was a little new to me. It actually caught me off guard when I went to warm up with 135, and reached down and it was really far down. Nevertheless, I made my way up around 305 before I began training almost everyone in the gym. I unfortunately took about twenty minutes between each big set, thus only allowing me to go up to 335 for a single. I then completed a down set of 285 for five reps which felt quite simple. As for the rest of my day, I tried to work with my brother, Mikey, and our good friends Kyle and Becky. I tried to push Kyle as much as I could to show him what HPF is all about because he had only come in for a day pass after frequently saying he’d come in soon. Everyone did amazing and I’m looking forward to my next day in HPF, not only just to train myself, but to train anyone who needs help.
