Definitely normal deadlifts.

Phew! For a moment there I thought I'd been doing fast romanian DLs for the past few months.

This, of course, would have led to further personality scarring when I asked myself "so what the hell was I doing when I thought I was doing RDLs!?"

But all is well, the Universe is once again in harmony.

Thanks Michael!
