That last set, the 48 x 5 was a PB. Forgot to write that on there. I think I could have pressed heavier d.bells than that if I hadn't have done so much before the third set.

Didn't train today, have had a mild gastric bug. Feel fine but had the shits lol, thought it safer to take the day off rather than shit my pants pulling a heavy DL.

But probably a good call to not do deadlifts!

Thanks guys 8)

My stomach is feeling better today, must have been fighting something as my pulse was up at 90bpm yesterday. I check my pulse as soon as I wake up every morning, if I'm in the 60's I can usually assume that I'm either starting to become either overtrained or sick. I'm back down in the low 60's today so I'm hopefully coming right.

Should be deadlifting this afternoon if I can get away from work for an hour.

AWESOME, made me laugh so much. Definately give the deadlifts a miss.
Glad your feeling better now though.

Looks like you are on track for a big pull by December.

I was a little pushed for time today so didn't rest much in between sets. The 352 (3.5PPS) wasn't overly tough; I'll go straight into a light week next week so it will be another 3wks or so before I hit maximal DL's again, I'm pretty sure I'll be able to pull 374 then.

The Raw Powerlifting Champs are in December, I'd like a 440 deadlift but we'll see. I've still got a good amount of room for weight gain as well, so that will help out the strength side of things. I normally take my bodyweight up to 145-148 and then drop back so I am close to 145 as possible. Last few meets I've competed at around 143 which has been good :)

My damn stomach is bloated as hell today, just feeling generally uncomfortable right now. Have decided to hit legs over the weekend, no point trying to squat and leg press when I'm burping and farting every couple of minutes lol.

Temporary setback.

LOL, you could just try to hold it in to take advantage of the increased inter-abdominal pressure :wink: :shock:

If I could have, I would have. Wouldn't have been pretty at all lol :?

Back to 100% now thankfully and I really nailed my tri's/shoulders this morning ~ got a pretty good photo straight after.

Will post up in the training and the photo later this arvo.
