A couple of weeks ago I started doing Doggcrapp training. I like it. It is pretty intense. I especially like the widowmakers at the end of some workouts, namely squats and deadlifts. Well this past workout, for back thickness my training partner and I decided to do deadlifts. I loaded up the bar with 405 and began my descent into pain and glory.
Now anyone who has ever done any serious deadlifting knows that deadlifts bring out the animal in you. They seperate the men from the boys folks. At about rep number 8 I couldn’t even tell you what I was doing, I was that focused.
Apparently though the bar was dropping too loudly on the floor and my grunts of pain were becoming too loud for the treadmill folks. Sorry guys, I do one set of one exercise that I make some noise on. I mean if you are making noise on a barbell curl then yes you are a complete tool.
Anyway after rep 15, the gym manager comes over and tells us to quiet down and then begins to tell us how he never makes noise when he deadlifts. I tell him to deadlift 405 for 15 reps and see if he puts the bar down softly and isn’t grunting in pain. God I wish there was a key gym in my area. I guess I’ll just have to save up my pennies and open one myself.
