Yeah man, I blew some tendons in my ankle while I was out for a run. Knocked me out of lifting for a month. But on a plus side it got me to correct my form and do full depth squats which I wasn't really accomplishing before. So it was a good thing I guess? I'd rather be hitting my weights now than hitting 315 at 3/4 depth.

I think I'll be able to get there sometime in the future though!

Ouch man, sorry to hear of the mishap. Good work on your recovery though, and I agree that it's much more fulfilling when you can hit ATG squats at good weight!

Deadlift 5/3/1 July 14

Warm Up
135x5
225x5
295x5

Working Sets
315x5
335x5
355x2

I was determined to hit 375 today. I knew I was ready to bump up my max, as every time I was DL'ing I was hitting more reps and more weight. Really happy with getting that today.

Decline Sit Ups with 15lbs medicine ball
4 sets of 15.

Bent Over Rows
135x10
145x10
145x10
145x10

Cut my workout a little short, my upper back is still sore from loading mulch all last week and raking, and I knew my form wasn't going to be on par.

I've been busy with everything going on right now, and updating my journal is proving to be difficult. I'm still hitting the gym, and tracking my progress. So here's my new maxes as of today:
Bench 185x2
Deadlift 375x1
MP 140x1
Squat 265x2

Body weight is currently 168.

Man, that is a sick deadlift. I'm just a few pounds lighter than you and trying to work my way up to 2x bodyweight for now. Got any tips?

Thanks man. It just takes work and dedication. Just keep going to the gym and pushing yourself and remember half the battle is mental. I you have a bad week, just give everything you have next week and you'll be there in no time!

Thanks dude, Slow and steady is the best mentality to use while lifting! Keep it up dude and you'll get there!

On a really sweet note, I bumped my Deadlift up to 385 tonight with 375x3 in before. Cable rowing 160x10 consistently, Incline Sit ups with a 15 pound ball and some deficit pulls. This is extremely rushed as I'm off to get some sleep before an early shift, but I wanted to get this in before it slipped my mind.

Saw a buddy from high school at the gym and he was so impressed by my pulls that he told me I need to start competing in some powerlifting competitions. It was a wicked confidence boost, but at the same time, my goal is to get into the competition hitting a 405 DL at least a 315 squat and a 225 bench. Until I've worked my ass off to hit those, I won't be happy with my lifts in a competition.

Looked up the qualifications for my lifting category in Ontario Powerlifting. I need to hit 836, and I can hit 845 right now. I'd be sitting in the "IV" class. The meet is the 18th, and mentally I'm not ready yet. But definitely a goal to shoot for.

Getting my stomach tattooed tomorrow, out of lifting for a few days. Should come back harder than ever.
