Deadlift 5's day and some other sore glute inducing things..

In the 5/3/1 scheme of things today was my Deadlift 5's day.


145x5
165x5
**182.5x max. I got 7

*We are currently staying at my parents until we move to Austin, TX. We brought with us the bare minimum of training equipment(squat rack, plates, kettlebells, buckets for loaded carries and one bar.) However, we unknowingly grabbed a 35lb bar we use for training clients. And something is seriously wrong with this bar. It's weird and off balance. In addition to that goof up we didn't bring the mates to the 5 and 2.5 lb plates. Sooo...I've been having to occasionally train with an uneven weight. i.e. not the same weight on each side.


  • Whew! Anyway, after that I did straight leg deads 

85x5
105x5
124x5
I really feel those in my lats

Then with a 20lb kettlebell I did lunges 10,9,8,....1
Then(with no weight) jumping squats 10,9,8,....1

Oh boy, that was some combo!

  1. Then out of the blue, he or she may want to take a break for
    while so they can do something else. But that started me on
    the path from which I have never turned back.
    Record your show or even better, video tape it, so you can give yourself constructive criticism
    after your show when you review the tape.

  2. All athletes know about such unpleasant part of exercising as post-workout soreness. It is usually perceived as inevitable part of our training routine. However, latest research shows this part could be omitted! Found a lot of interesting information on how to prevent DOMS due to proper nutrition and supplementation here:

    For me it was quite helpful to improve my workouts and gain better results!
