Deload week. Nothing special.

I did do the high intensity deload week this week on deadlifts though. I worked up to 575 for a single. This was slightly higher than my training max, but I’d guess it to be 92% or so of my true 1RM. The reason I jumped up the weight a bit is: 570 was my previous raw deadlift PR from 2 years ago. I haven’t tested it since. Since I was in the ballpark I figured why not pull a PR on my deload week. It was fast and easy. The second reason was I was training with my good friend Clint Darden and an EliteFTS videographer had came down to film us training together. Unfortunately it happened to be on my deload week, but regardless I moved some weight and did some sled drags.

*Day 1 of my 2013 NAS Strongman Nationals program started today. I’m 13 weeks out. *
