Combining upper & lower once again because I'm moving some more stuff out of my old apartment to the new one. I know I said I'd take at least two more weeks off of deadlifting, but I hate just sitting around. I did extensive warmups before this, starting with 135, 185, 225, 245, 275, 295, and then the weights you see here. It felt odd; my back was fine, but my shins were not used to it. Usually they're bruised, or at least used to the bar banging on them, it kind of skipped up my shins oddly.
My bar speed is absolute shit right now. I actually put 385 on the bar, started to lift and realize it was going so slow I'd probably hurt something. I hate this to be honest. I can pull 500 lbs. when fully healthy and I have to piddle around with 365. Well I guess I'm just going to have to keep slowly throwing weight on the bar week to week until my body is used to this again. The reps today definitely felt weird, in part because of the way it skipped up my shins, but also I haven't done conventional deadlifting in over 3 weeks at this point. I did some speed DLs after just to try and remind my body what it's like to pull something fastly.
DB Benching went well, as did the rowing, I'm impressed I got to 420 meters in under 1:30. It's not exactly 200, or 400 because when I stop the 'boat' is apparently still moving.
