Deadlift w/belt

Well this was actually fun. 705x5 is kind of a milestone lift for me and while it's not a PR, it's an indicator that things are going well. Then I maintained that output for a while, which I'm positive I haven't done before.

Nice plus over last week. This was interesting because on the last set, I lost control on the first negative. I've not pushed the WR that hard before. It doesn't feel like it does much, but I guess it does.

Definitely improving. It's been a while since I've done 4's, but the trend is definitely upward. Fatigued more quickly than last week.

Plus about 3 over last week, which is both good and surprising. I'm feeling more comfortable lowering heavy weights. I hope that is translatable.
