Pull Monday: Good Time

I HAVE BEEN in a shitty mood since my knees packed it in on me again, two weeks ago, and in addition to other commitments in the real world, I’ve missed another events sessioncropped-axle-deadlift...-warmup.jpg last Saturday. Plus I needed to squeeze in a training session before my physio appointment tonight, so I decided to strip it back to just the deadlift, and get some comp-specific pulls in there as well.

And my program called for 235 kilograms to be the top load used, but I literally couldn’t find any 2.5 plates in the High Performance Zone, so I moved on to 240 and made that my bitch pretty good. My pulls felt stronger and, while I know each day I walk in to lift, I *could* pull 300-odd, I don’t.

All in good time.
