Kilos, My Friend.
March 27, 2012
I rarely deadlift. I wouldn’t recommend including them often as a part of your routine if you are focusing on your Olympic lifts UNLESS #1) you are new to lifting and are trying to build up your general strength base, #2) like deadlifts. I personally could take em’ or leave em’. But a co-worker was talking shit to me the other day (OK, WE were talking shit to each other) about the upcoming tactical strength challenge being held at my work in a few weeks. So I decided to do it. I figured, it takes place after Collegiates and it could be nice for a little change of pace and to totally stick it to my co-worker.
Here’s a video of me hittin’ some deads after my workout yesterday. I’m pretty sure this is the most I’ve ever done and I should be good for a little more if I add a belt.
I feel like a big guy like myself should at least be able to hit 6 hundo. I might take these up once more before the competition to see what I got, but I’m still not too concerned about it.
Here’s some footage tonight.
That’s 2 hundred kilos, friend. I’m really motivated to try and get that for a triple just so I can totally bury that landmark that I was stuck at for so long.
More pin-ups on the way. I declare next week to be National Pin-Up Drawing Week. I’m going to try and post one a day M-F (I may have to dig through the ol’ vault to see if I have some older pieces). If you have any, feel free to e-mail them or post them to the comments section.
