T-Ransformation: Week 6 - Disappointment!
170kg: 2 - straps on
190kg: 3 - belt on
220kg: F - at knees
220kg: F- straps off, mixed grip, below knees
Absolute nightmare!!! I miscounted the weight on the bar - thought I'd hit 200kg for 3 pretty comfortably and that I should just try 220kg and thought I'd got it! But I was 10kg out for everything! Absolutely gutted. A sensible man would have dropped back to 200kg and tried to get the prescribed 200kg for 2, but I was so pissed off that I went for 220kg for real. The first time I wore straps but never fully felt like I was in proper position and failed just above the knee. The second time I switched to mixed grip because I feel like I can get my hips into a better position with mixed grip, but at that point I was absolutely shot and failed about an inch off the floor.
In hindsight this was actually very encouraging - I smoked that 210kg deadlift, proving it wasn't a fluke last week,and getting 220kg above the knees indicates that I'm actually really close. Going from thinking you got a PR to realising you didn't is heartbreaking though.
Later in the week I'm going to redo today, but just going for the prescribed reps and no more (top set of 200kg for 2).
EDIT: I blew out a bunch of blood vessels across my shoulders and chest so if nothing else at least I'm a step closer to being @T3hPwnisher in that regard lol.
