Pull Monday: Underpowered

I HADN’T planned that single of 280. It was supposed to be a triple… but a triple would have been grinding and pointless. It was also supposed to be beltless, but after triples of 220 and 250 without one, I can guarantee I wouldn’t have made the set. I need to lower the weight further and try for 5 by 5 while I deload, and now I know where to start next week.

I also have the option here of continuing to strengthen my conventional deadlift or switching to axle deads, using the wooden platforms and bumper plates. And my axle, of course. The specificity of the axle deadlift will put me in good stead for the next Strongman comp. But having said that, it’s a different lift compared with the conventional barbell; it doesn’t hit the quads nearly as much… and not strengthening my legs is counterintuitive to the reason FOR my programming in the first place. So the former is the better option.

I’ve got a physio appointment Wednesday night, before my press session, and then Thursday night I intend to load up the leg press. Squatting last week was great, but I still was left with some pain. Obviously more needling is required. Plus, I can’t load my axle heavy enough right now, as I’m out of practice. I’m going to return to squatting on a fortnightly basis, alternating with heavy leg press to maximise strength development.

I’m also going to have to use some more machines… hooray. Calf raises and shit like that couldn’t hurt, when I’m bored of the glute-ham raises… and don’t I just love those. I will have to see what else I can throw in.
