I set aside time to get to the gym and do deadlifts. Here are the results of the workout:
Tuesday, September 17, 2019
325 lb x 2 reps x 4 sets
325 lb x 1 rep x 2 sets
no warm-up set
I prefer to do the exercises without a warm-up set; in my opinion, my body is ready for the lifts or I just won't be able to lift the weight from the floor. I rested 2 - 4 minutes between sets, taking time to drink plenty of water before I went back to do more.
I know that I have the physical strength to do heavier lifting; several weeks ago after my many years' absence from deadlifting, I deadlifted at 365 pounds. With my steady progress, I'm getting back to my 425 1 rep max, and I will then go beyond even that. Next week, I'll post about going heavier than 365 pounds.
I'll keep you posted.
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear ; do not be frightened." 1 Peter 3:14
