Video: 405 for Max Reps in 70 seconds (Got Some Work to Do)

..Last week, Strongman training got canceled last-minute, so I pulled one of the events we were going to do into my Thursday training session (which is typically all accessories/bodybuilding type movements to support the rest of training).

I did max deadlift reps with 405lbs in 70 seconds, and did 18. Originally my thought was to pace myself and break it into some chunks, but I quickly realized how much I underestimated the energy I waste resetting/redoing straps/getting momentum going again. Next time I do this I'm going to push the first chunk of reps further, and I'm confident I will get beyond 20 (ideally closer to 25). Every new training challenge like this is a good learning experience, so now I know what I need to work on for next time.
