I have a meet coming up in September and DL has always been my best lift. I haven't pulled anything significant for a few months, and primarily been pulling vs bands. This workout 585 felt very, very heavy off the floor and easy as soon as it cleared my knee.
4x10 standing abs
4x10 cable pull throughs
The 585 felt way heavier off the floor. Granted I wasn't in the mood to train, but no way it should have felt like that regardless.
To make up for the terrible deadlift I hit some rack pulls from just above the knee
815x1 for a PR- not that it really matters for anything
100 Hammer Strength Hamstring curls to finish it off.
Next time I pull I will work up to 635 at least and hopefully it will be a fast rep. That will most likely be the last warmup at my meet.
