Workout 01/17/15: Deadlifts

Deadlifts: Bar x10 x1, 155lbs x10 x1, 175lbs x10 x5, 195lbs x5 x3.

So, I’m a bit worried. Final set completed, decided to do a 6th rep in that set. Up was fine, and on the down motion I lost form and felt a tight pinch on my left side, lower back.

I think I strained or pulled that muscle. And I am pissed! I’ve been very careful with form and this happens. I’m going to take it easy and see how I feel over the next few days.

Keep moving forward, everyone.

  1. An NFL strength coach told me years ago to never do more than 5 reps when you deadlift due to loosing form. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    1. Thanks 3HL! I’m hoping that I have a speedy recovery, too! I usually do 10 reps for the warm up with just the oly bar, but recently i’ve added some 10rep sets as I get closer to my work sets. I am definitely dropping down again! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
