Tonite was deadlift night (wendler 5/3/1). I get to the gym to find a couple kids deadlifting. One near the squat rack, the other near the power rack. I grabbed a bar and went over by the Smith. This is a commercial/strip type gym but it has a great attitude. They hold push/pulls there. Hell. they encourage chalk. Unfortunately, there aren't platforms or a designated DL area.
Long story short. Three guys in a row, pulling at least 3 plates. The kids were only 19yrs old. For at least today, my faith in the young lifter has been somewhat restored. We'll see what Friday brings.
