MBS II (6AM) - Taylor, Chris, about 4 others and me
Run 100m, 10 air squats, Run 100m 10 walking lunges, Run 100m, 10 air squats, Run 100m, 10 walking lunges. Tabata (20/10) with PVC Good Mornings, Overhead Press, Squat, Bent Over Row. 3 rounds.
7-7-7-7-7 Deadlift. Work up to a 7 rep max.
I worked out with Taylor and after warming up with 95#, did my first set at 135#. I then went up progressively to 155#, 185#, 205# and 225#. I felt really good about 225#, but Taylor was still going up. I tagged along at 245#, expecting to bail after 2-4 reps, but made it through 7. Feeling spent, I did not grab the 265#.
I felt much better about my form and getting set with a neutral back. Considering the last time I looked for a max deadlift, I only put up 235#, I felt even better about this effort.
We finished with mobility sitting on the floor with legs flared, overhead reach to 1 foot and then the other,folding toward one foot and then the other, figure 4 stretch and rotating both legs together in either direction.
