Week 2, Day 1 - 8 Weeks Out - Deadlifts & Back

I'm currently training for USS "Hope for the Holidays" strongman push/pull competition in December. I'm working with Mike Mastell and training focus is strength with some hypertrophy emphasis.


-Deadlifts moved fast and felt strong. Intensity is still low, but ramping up. I'm also pulling twice a week at the moment.

-Block pulls moved fast, felt light.

-I really hammered my back with the rest of the movements. I trained these more like a bodybuilder and really felt the muscles working. Kept rest around 90s here.
