Some Pulling: 300 kgs x … Not 4

THAT was a brief moment of confusion. deadlifts 300 kgs x not 4

I’m keeping to the very basics while I nurse this shoulder. Rowing is still out, along with a bunch of other things. But at least I can pull. Tonight I hit what had been a goal of mine: 300 kilograms for a triple (and it would have been more were it not for the slippery collar on the right). I forgot about this goal when I switched to powerlifting and the quest for new one-rep-maxes… it just wasn’t in my programming over the period, though I hit comparable loadings and rep ranges.

I really need to pull my finger out and devise a better program. I really need to schedule another day off work to get another referral to a place that has a bigger MRI machine. I need to do a lot of things. Right now, I’m just happy I can keep lifting while I get the rest of my ducks in a row, so to speak.

My bodyweight was down to what would be a disappointing 130 kilograms and change at the start of the week. I say would be as right now I’m not prepping for a comp, so loss of mass is incidental. Loss of strength, however, is always a negative. And while the number on the scale is less I’m evidently still getting stronger.
