Pull Thursday: Climbing the Board

warmup w/bands

Deadlifts
70 kgs x 8
120 kgs x 5
170 kgs x 5
220 kgs x 3
250 kgs x 1
270 kgs x 1
290 kgs x 1 TPR

Bent-over BB rows
70 kgs x 15
72.5 kgs x 12

I MADE a return to the under/over grip tonight, as the right biceps tendon was feeling good and I wanted my grip to be as strong as possible for these singles. The double overhand has compromised this aspect of my deadlift lately. I wasn’t intending to work up to 290, but everything felt strong so I thought, fuck it.

This is not a personal best, as I pulled that in July’s WA Strongman qualifiers. But it’s a new record for me on the board at PTC, it was strapless, and it felt a whole lot better than it did on comp day. When it went up, nice and smooth, I thought briefly about pushing to 295, or more. But that would have been a bad idea. I’ve got events training this weekend. And I’m supposed to be on a deload.

The tendon started playing up again during rows, so I scrapped the final set. Damned if I’m going to risk re-injuring that doing something as boring as rows.
