oh my favorite day.. dam wish i was there to sling some lead! good luck all. and a good tip as to tell how hard you are trying on the deadlifts is if you are doing a deadlift and a little bit of pee pee comes out you working pretty hard.

Actually, Billy, you regularly have an issue with wetting yourself because you are apparently the only freak still crazy enough to use lead weights.

Oh, wait... ''sling'' lead weights haha.

Come back soon dude, it's way to polite in here without you.

Max Effort DL


wasn't in the right mindset for some reason today

Rambo, next time that happens (especially after watching yourself fall into an groundhog day situation of failed reps) just split the difference between what you last achieved and what you were struggling with.
There will always be a mental aspect tied to our training success, but looking at your numbers I'm going to throw a couple lucky guesses out there.
1. You warmed up with less than ten reps before moving into your first max effort pull.
2. You were rushing and not timing your recovery intervals to make sure you had yourself primed for more max pulls.
3. 475 is getting pretty close to maximal load, so to use a 20 lb jump was probably too much % load increase for your barely sub-max pull.

We've all had similar situations happen to us at some point or another, so one thing we should be trying to do is not only learn these damn hard leassons fast for ourselves, but also so we can look out for the rest of our crew in there.

Sorry if you feel I'm picking on you, but your numbers literally couldn't have drawn a better picture of your frustration and why, hopefully everyone comes into the next MEBB training day with a mind sharper than champion chess victors. Go dream about tomorrow's hell.
