I’m noticing that I seem to have still got it on the powerlifting. I pulled an easy 275 lb. deadlift single this morning at the gym. I kept my deadlift session real easy and semi-light ’cause when coming back from time off, you don’t want to go too crazy on the heavy lifting just yet. The 275 lb. deadlift was too easy, I felt I could do a lot more.
So maybe I still do have the 300 lb. deadlift after all??? We’ll see. I remember once a long time ago at the gym, I pulled a 315 lb. max lift and I’m hoping I could do that again. I will start doing 300 pounders on deadlift at the gym and that’s my goal for the rest of the year. I’m hoping to start doing 300 lbs. for more reps, though.
First time back in the gym in a long time, gotta take it easy and that’s what I did. Next week, though, I think it’s time to get back into my serious strength training. Go back to heavy sets and few reps. Really improve my numbers on the big three is my goal. I’m not gonna mess around anymore this time… take powerlifting more seriously and not miss any lifts.
It felt great to be deadlifting again finally, though. My legs are even more sore because of it. No more time off from the gym. I wasn’t gonna take time off this year but the stupid pandemic forced me to since I don’t have my own gym. So happy to be back ’cause this is what I’m supposed to do.
