6-20-14 – Deadlift Day!

Max rep day for deadlifts was the plan for today’s training session, and it is something that I am always looking forward to doing. I want to be able to push myself and see what I can do. Also, It shows me if the accessory work that I do is actually helping my main lift. My last AMAP for deadlifts was 405, this week it was 400, why it came out that way I do not know, but I stuck with the plan. My first two working sets felt really easy, but I noticed that my grip was weakening mid way through my first working set. As I approached 400 I was pumped and ready to go. I felt the first two reps came up powerful, then 3 and 4 got tougher, I wanted more than 4 and attempted another rep but only got it half way up. I got it up to my knees then I felt the bar begin to slip and I dropped it. My goal for this weight is to get more than 4 reps. I have also incorporated hamstring curls into my deadlift training sessions, because I am also noticing that my hamstrings are getting fatigued quickly as the weight gets heavier.
