Much appreciated! LGB, nice to hear it was good form - too bad there is no video, i would have loved to see it...
Upwards and onwards! Still 12.5kg to go for my april 2007 goal.
ok writing this here, may sound a bit cheesy or korny, but i want to save this for posterity.
Looking back at the deadlift session, so many things went right for the day.
Starting from previous training, i took it easier on my sundays squat session with only one heavy set to save myself for the wednesdays pulling. I also started to think about the wednesdays session and what my goals were days before and tried to eat accordingly.
On wednesday i woke up feeling like i was getting a cold, but this feeling soon went away and i started hyping myself up. I had three Linda McCartney pies at work (=1365 calories), a litre of soya milk, and some other bits and bobs - calorie intake was spot on indeed. Few hours before the session was due to start i watched some big monster deadlift videos online, Jouko Aholas 3x360kg deadlift with a nosebleed was especially inspiring. Also, me and Olly started hyping up and exchanging random abuse 2 hours into the session via MSN. On the way to the gym i put on my headphones and listened to aggressive metal full blast.
At the gym i was already in the zone in such a way that i didn't care how busy it was or what happened around me. Sure, there were alot of people but i didnt see them or hear them. From the start we knew that today was about pulling big weights and this was the attitude from the first warm up. Olly recommended that i pulled every set after 140kg like it was my max and i think that mental attitude helped as well. Of course because he was going heavy as well, the mood and determination spreads and sticks on you.
In the end, 500lbs milestone broken, 7.5kg PB and with a feeling that there is plenty more in the tank.
(and for the record, olly pulled 250kg and 8x200)
