Deadlift (Rep PR w/Video) and Squats - 3 Weeks Out Nationals/5 Weeks Out England
I am currently training for The 2014 North American Strongman (NAS) National Championship as well as the Strongman Champions League (SCL) England u90kg. NAS Nationals will be held Oct. 4th & 5th in Reno, NV and the Strongman Champions League will be held Oct. 18th in Southampton, England. I'm also adjusting to raising a new baby boy while still working, training and living life.
I was still battling the cold from Monday as it had gotten a bit worse. But regardless I put in the work needed and moved on. I did skip out on my rollouts and GHRs that I had programmed because honestly I felt like death. I did move them to another day though.
I was very pleased with this pull. Based on my peaking cycle for the Arnold where I pulled 670 raw the week after my deadlift is close to 700 right now. My heaviest pull during the Arnold peaking cycle was 580x3. This 610x3 felt very solid. I'm very happy with where my pull is at the moment. Especially since this was a weak point of mine for so damn long.
