> Sore legs but I still crushed this PR. I'd planned on doing partials off of plastic stools but they made me lower too slowly out of fear of breaking them. I'm using straps more because my right pinky finger has been hurting from gripping raw, otherwise I'd chalk up for everything but the max set like I do with my belt.
On that note, recently I very humbly shared my experience with straps helping me with my deadlift woes on the Iron Radio Facebook page and even linked to Emevas' article on the matter and I got total shit for it. Dayum. Just going to keep doing what works for me, then. People can be so rude.

  1. There are so many Billy Badasses out there that refuse to use straps because they think it proves something. These are the same people that just don't understand that training is something you do to make you a better competitor, not something worth bragging about. No one cares how you got there, just that you did.

    Congrats on the PR.

  3. Couldn't have said it any better. And thanks, after years of stagnancy it's nice to start moving along on the deadlift.
