Heavy deadlift

Yesterday I had time to do my heavy deadlifts in the morning at Hyde Park Gym. As I was doing my warmup sets everything was feeling good and I figured it would be a good day to go ahead and move the weight up. I already had the Hyde Park Gym Raw deadlift record in both the 181 and 198 lb. class. My 181 record is 450 lbs, which I pulled at our push/pull meet back in June (pictured above). My 198 lb. class record was only 435 lbs and I decided I would bring that up a bit, since I stepped on the scale weighing 182 (just over the 181 limit). All of my deadlifts felt really good and I stopped with a very strong pull at 455 lbs. This is the most I’ve deadlifted from the floor in at least 8 years. I did box jumps in between my deadlifts again. Since I’m not jumping to fatigue I don’t think it adversely affects my deadlifts at all. I would have liked to do some heavy rack deadlifts after the regular ones, but I ran out of time and had to get to my next client. I did the rest of my work later in the afternoon. I ran into my friend, Rocky, and he joined me for my last 2 back exercises, one arm DB rows and partial deadlifts. I was really tired by the time Rocky joined me and I don’t think I would have gone as heavy without his motivation.
