Killin’ it!

/ Posted 06.17.2010

I’ve been such a blog slacker!!! But, I haven’t been a diet or workout slacker! I’ve really been hammering it as I prepare for the IFBB Pro 202 Class at the Europa Supershow.
Today was back day and I had a great one! Just for fun I’m going to lift in the Annual Hyde Park Gym Push/Pull meet a week from Saturday. So, I’ve been going heavy (for me) on bench and deadlift. Today I pulled a 440 lb deadlift on my heaviest set and finished with 315 for 15 reps. I’ve been battling a chronic lower back problem and today was my best deadlift day (in terms of both strength and endurance) in over a year.

Deadlifts 135X10, 225X6, 275X3, 315X3, 365X1, 405X1, 425X1, 440X1, 315X15
Partial Deadlifts (in the rack from the knees up) 365X10, 405X6, 455X5
Close Grip Pullups 10, 8, 6, 4 then 15 second rest/pauses and holding in the contracted position at the top for 5 seconds 2, 1, 1, 1, 1,1
