As full as the gym was yesterday is as empty as it was today, it was quite odd. Anyway I decided to take advantage of the lack of humanity to get in some deadlift sets despite working my legs pretty thoroughly the day before on the Cybex equipment.
I didn’t go too heavy, capping the weight at 315. The grip in my right arm felt very poor, even with a mixed grip. I don’t want to become dependent on straps to pull heavier weight but without using chalk it’s tough for me to keep the bar from slipping down my fingers.
I rounded out the work out with some pull-push work, supersetting top hold Australian pull ups with decline push up variations.
5 minutes cardio/stretching
Deadlift – 135 x 10, 225 x 10, 275 x 5, 315 x 5, 315 x 5
Australian pull ups with 2 second pause at top 3 sets x 8 reps
Decline pushups with 5 second pause at bottom, hand placement even first set and then opposite stagger last 2 sets – 8 reps each set
