Died hard on this one. Top set was about what I imagined, but the fatigue got pretty bad by the end of this.

Deadlift w/belt
e1RM: 690
Solid work on the single. The pull still felt a little tentative off the floor, but the accelleration was good. Rep work was solid obviously. But I got better at that off-the-floor

Pretty good. About what I expected, which I'm pleased with considering this is in a fatigued state.

Competition Raw Bench

Small improvement over last week. Volume was definitely more fatiguing (makes sense).

3ct Pause Bench

Single was tight, but I think the first rep set had some slop. I tried it again and barely missed the third rep. Lots of fatigue from the volume work.

    I have seen on your blogs recently that you're including singles before your rep work on all the big 3/close variations of. Why is that? You may well have already addressed this, but I don't remember it being the case in the past

    Just trying to get more exposure to heavy weights. So for the pause stuff, I'm thinking that a little very high intensity work would pair well with the goals of pause work. I won't be doing this on every assistance lift though.

    Very interesting point in regards to the goals of pause work. I have started using higher intensities on my pause variations and have found it to carry over in a big way to the competition lift. I used to do all my paused stuff in that very low intensity range that is often recommended and never thought I got much out of it. I have hit three paused rep PR's in the last 3 weeks in both the squat and deadlift (beltless, too) and immediately have seen the benefit with a 10kg triple PR in the competition squat yesterday. Thanks for the swift reply Mike!
