Today was supposed to be deadlift day. I got my reps with 260 last week (building back up after wrenching my back during a fall–that cost me a few weeks). So I went to 270 today. I did some body weight squats and bar RDLs then a set of 8 with 135 as warm ups, then did 2 with 225…then loaded the bar to 270. And I couldn’t break it off the ground after 3 tries. I dropped the weight 20 pounds, and STILL couldn’t break it.
I wound up doing some good mornings with the bar (and even they hurt like hell) and a couple sets of body weight lunges, but seriously, what causes that? I had a rough Friday/Saturday (had to take hte kid to the hospital Friday pm cause he was sick and the regular clinics were closed) but yesterday’s OHP session went OK. I’ve been eating at a minimum 180 grams of protein every day since I started keeping a food log Feb 21st (excluding Friday–I was feeling crappy in the AM and then spent from about 7p-10:30pm at the hospital). So what the hell can cause something like that? I didn’t feel bad going in even; a little stiff maybe but that was it.
