Deadlift 730 x 2!

Deadlift 730 x 2 July 30 2014 from Clint Darden on Vimeo.

I ended up working till 0600 or after the night before and to say I was feeling "fresh" would be a joke. I was honestly not sure if I would take the 730 for a ride or stop 1 set short and call it a deload week.

All of my warm ups felt off and I can feel that I still have the semi-habit of pulling it like a clean on my warm ups.

A big fear of mine is the lack of hamstring work that I'm currently doing...NONE. My body is simply not able to recover from much work so I have simplified my program as much as I can recover from right now, but I know it will have to increase for me to get stronger.

But it seems that even the light snatch and clean work that I'm doing (as well as the box squats) have my hamstrings in pretty solid shape.

warm ups
506 x 1
550 x 1
640 x 1
730 x 2...Recent PR (best in well over 1 year)

warm ups
60 x 2 x 2
70 x 2
80 x 1 (feeling extremely exhausted)

60 x a couple of rough ones
70 x a couple of attempts

At this point all I wanted to do was lay down and sleep.

Didn't get the chance to and worked till around 0500 after training and by that time my body was shutting down. Very painful, very sore.

Swollen, Stiff, and Painful. REMBER: It is OK to be angry, to be upset, to cry. It is OK to yell and scream if you have the energy. Look up into The Heavens and ask "Lord, WHY ME?!" It is OK to have fear and to face humility with tears. It is OK to weep into your Bible as you search for answers before bed. It is OK for your children to see your pain, your fear, and your tears as long as they feel your love and honesty at the same time. It IS OK to hurt. IT IS OK to feel. IT IS OK to fear and to cry. It is also OK to smile as often as possible. To hug everyone that you can. To love those that do not deserve your love and to have passion for those that DO. For we FEEL! We hurt. We weep. We fight to survive. For this IS pain, but to not FEEL is The Real Pain in Itself.

I Wonder How Far I Can Take My Deadlift...,
