Congrats Nidoran on hitting that max! Feels good, right. Also props on getting that schedule together. I'm sure you know that the rest and repetition that a set schedule provides is essential for muscle growth and development. How are you doing your splits? Upper/lower/back? reply
I got the deadlift max to 135 yesterday (5 reps)
today is the last day of my "free-form", I start fresh on Monday with a proper schedule.
While studying, I was inspired to create my very own planner. Now I have a schematic to follow, allowing for 2 day breaks between muscle groups.
I don't deadlift at home either because I don't have enough free-weights. I deadlift at the local gym on Saturday mornings. Sucks not being able to do it at home, but it's probably better that way as it's best to have a spotter when going heavy. reply
I dig that. I have a starter bench and 190 lb of weights total, so I try and vary my workouts. I used to do more, now I'm trying to get more from less, which is why I began deadlifts since they have a long kinetic chain and work numerous systems.
We can only keep trying and support each other while we do! Good Luck, also!
Good luck Nordian, I'm digging your goals, I'm still only pulling 135 pounds. I don't have many weights at home so I only get to deadlift at the gym and I have to get in so many other lifts when I am there I am not consistent with it. reply
120 is my max (so far)
I currently workout in my basement, which is a little cramped. When the weather gets better I'm thinking about dragging the weights in the yard for more space, and see what happens there.
I would like to move my own body weight, eventually. But small steps are ok. I'm feeling really good about my new routine. I'm noticing a change! And I get to eat a lot lol! reply
