Failed to deadlift 620. After 3 attempts I accepted that it just wasn't happening, as badly as I wanted it. I believe I have the strength but my back had been bothering me and mentally I couldn't pull the trigger to really rip the bar off the ground.

The next day I did my maintenance work. SSB squats of 240x3x15 and crunches.


  1. So soon after a meet, it's gonna be rough territory setting new maxes. Noble effort dude. I think some rep PRs will carry you far.

  2. Yeah man, I think I'm underestimating that. I've felt sluggish this week even after a deload, despite coming out strong on the sets that count.
