Awesome deadlifting. There’s nothing like a deadlift for a feeling of strength.
I need to get back into deadlifts.
I’m surprised you had energy for 2 sets of 405 afterwards. Have you tried rest-pause for more reps with the 405, say 12+?
Did you suffer any aches and pains in the days following? Deadlifts can take it out of you!
no i havent done much rest pause and i didnt feel any aches or pains either with the deads but last week i tried to do some (real dumb !) legpresses and that one really kills your lower back so thats a nono for me. i currently working out at a ballys and i very rarely see anybody deads but alot of curls and benching what a surprise !!
many guys there seem to have bigger benches than squats and other lower body lifts and they do alot of quarter squats and two inch benching and high fiving each other afterwards.
when i got my 500 single on the deadlift no one came up and said nice lift , nothing they probably thought im crazy or something doing that kind of lifting.
sorry i went on a bit of a rant at the end here but you see some crazy stuff on these commercial gyms thats make you wonder and i just shake my head and try to focus on what im doing !
