Today’s Deadlifts 405,495,545 warm ups, 585, then pulling 600 for the first time since working with a shorter stiff bar. Then 405 x5. Pretty happy with these today everything felt great. #conjugate#elitefts#sumodeadlift @uspapower @unbreakablegear @uspatexas @legendsgymrockwall @metroflex_gym_plano @iplpowerlifting
First lift back from the deload
Did 80-85% for 5s than to top it off 375 for an ok 3 , Still working on finding my starting point but it’s coming together nicely no hitch gang 😴😴#sumodeadlift#powerlifting#pullday
Final week of Block 1 of my Intensification Phase. Hit a massive volume PR of 425x5...before this training cycle I have never hit anything over 400 for more than a single. I hit 5 at 405 and 410 last week, before this grinder set to finish this week. Looking forward to my deload next week before I destroy Block 2 of my Intensification Phase...focusing more on specificity on the platform for the Spring. Here we go! #deadlift#sumodeadlift#aintnothingbutapeanut#powerlifting#deadlifttillimdead#hatersgonnahate
En massa 1or i böj, bänk och mark 🤗
1x60% (80kg) 1x75% (100kg) i böjen. Vilket kändes förjävligt idag 😳
1x60% (90kg)i marklyft.
3x1 på 95% (67,5kg) bänkpress 👊🏼 Skulle ljuga om det inte känns, för det gör det. Min kropp är sliten och jag hoppas innerligt att den hinner återhämta sig något extra tills på lördag nu när den får vila några dagar!
💥SQUATS OR DEADLIFTS?💥
🦄The fitness industry runs on a continuum of extremes. "Good" exercises and "bad" ones. The "best" and the "worst." "Right" and "wrong." "Healthy" and "unhealthy." Truth is, nothing is so black and white. Everything depends on the individual and their specific needs, goals, preferences, blah blah blah. The only thing that is *for sure* 100% bad is Bellatrix Lestrange because, I mean, look what she did to Neville Longbottom's mum and dad.
☕️Anyway, a fistful of witches and wizards have recently asked, "what's better, squats or deadlifts?" And, like Dumbledore once told me over a treacle tart, one isn't inherently better than the other. They're both fantastic exercises and prioritize two entirely separate, yet equally important, movement patterns.
🦄With that in mind, don't just do one or the other. Practice both. There are hundreds - if not thousands - of variations of each, and using both patterns within your workouts will allow you to get way leaner and stronger and more athletic than only doing one.
☕️Keep in mind, you don't need to do barbell squats and deadlifts. Nor do you need to do the two-leg (bilateral) versions. You can use bodyweight, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, broomsticks, cauldrons, thestrals, and even Fang (Hagrid's dog). Regardless of what you choose, just make sure to practice them both and practice them often. Because they're both amazing movements. And they both make you gooder at sex. And people tell me sex is pretty fun.
Saturday deadlifts were garbage(started at 90% for working sets and ended up at 88% cuz shit was feeling funkyyyy), and my left lat ended up locking up (during my front squats, wtf), so I’m off the gym for the next few days and that is sad and I am sad and these deadlifts were sad. In the meantime, I’m hiring @emilycrousefitness as my background dancer for my whole life.
Also, note to self, check your belt before you setup. LORT.
Pulled some weight today!
Sumo Deadlifts: 80 kilos for sets of 6
Hip Thrusts: 100 kilos for sets of 6
Haven't done sumo deads in ??? months and it felt heavy today, but fun! 😄
Also pretty happy with being able to go up in weight on the hip thrusts without compromising form, and still hold at the top.
Finished the workout with some isolation work for glutes and hamstrings 😊
