Mini Forklift Ⓥ wrote:No worries mate. Another thing you might find pretty cool (I just mentioned this in captfit's log) is to look at the deadlift in a slightly different way...
One thing I have found really useful is rather than thinking of the DL as a pull, imagine it as a pressing movement.
Next time you deadlift, imagine trying to push/drive your feet down into the floor. Once the bar is off the floor you'll be surprised at how much extra power this gives you.
yeah i've read that somewhere before pretty sure its in 5/3/1 book isnt it?? anyways i do try to push down with my legs and drive my hips into it suppose I just need to work on it.
bloody well loved the vid mate! If i'm completely honest I would have given up after the failed attempt.. you're so strong man the final 200kg attempt had me on the edge of my seat! so much determination!
cheers captfit I've sorted that out now
bench 2 PRs!!!!
empty bar (20 Kg) x 10
40 Kg x 6
60 Kg x 5
70 Kg x 5
75 Kg x 1 PR
77.5 Kg x 1 PR although this rep was so difficult, sooo much harder than 75 Kg :s this is definately my limit I'm gonna go for a light bench workout next time and work up to doing multiple reps at 75 Kg, bit disheartened that I couldn't get a double on either of the last two sets but ho hum!
Press up competetion so if you didn't know, on bench day me and my buddy try and do as many press ups after benching, he went first and did a very sloppy 45... I went second and did a very very sloppy 43. bullshit!!
wide grip x10
didn't squat tonight as the rack was occupied for ages
now off to meet the mrs for a very well deserved cheeseless pizza
