This morning I completed Unf*ck Your Program Beg. (4B) as follows: Wagon Wheel Deadlifts 3-135, 3-225, 1-315, 1-365 1-405, 1-435, 1-465, 1-475 (vid final 2 sets below) SSB Squats 5-65, 3-155, 3-205, 3-255, 4-290, 5-285, 6-285 Bench Press 5-45, 3-135, 3-185, 2-225, 3x6 @ 250 (vid below) Superset: Chins 3x10 Plate L-Flyes 3x5 @ 25 Bodyweight: 216.0 Pounds (Down 6.2 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9) Workout Duration: 1:19:31.76 h:mm:ss.ms (with 1:00 rest between sets) Great workout at Untamed Strength. I was really disappointed with my last deadlift workout, and I was feeling fine in terms of strength and no back soreness (even though I just pulled on Thursday) so I decided to work up to some heavy singles to see if I could get the 465 I missed on Thursday. I got that and also was able to get 475 using the wagon wheels. I think that puts me in a good place for the Caffeine and Kilos comp on 10/6. Now I'll taper down in weight and use some deficit deads to strengthen up a bit from the floor and I should be set. Bench felt good too. I got all of my 3x6 reps at 250 and the last 2 sets didn't feel overly tough. I'm looking forward to dropping reps and upping weight there over the next 4 weeks.

Heading into #untamedstrength I was feeling strong so I called an audible and added some wagon wheel deadlifts to my workout. First video is me hitting 475 and second video was me hitting 465. Put my performance on Thursday in the rear view mirror. Now on to my regular squats and bench workout. 😁
