    don't forget things don't have to be scheduled only in weekly blocks. a 7 day week is an arbitrary number to our bodies. u can make ur blocks be 10 day periods if that's easier to figure out with rugby and ur body's recovery abilities. or whatever works for you. :D

    110kg (242lbs) 54 in 10.00
    8,6,6,5,4,3,3,3,5,6,5

    Destroyed me again, felt stronger this time but what was I up to with those 3's in the middle? I think I thought doing lots of 3's would get me there but it does more harm as I rest just as long, better for me just to hang in there. I need to work on using my left hand underhand more as my right and right forearm seem to be taking a fair bit of flak, I just don't feel as controlled the other way round. My right index finger is still numb, must have squashed a nerve half way through - :rolleyes:

    Listening to Deja on the 7 day rotation :doh:- will go heavy next time out on deadlift which will probably be a week away from now and then back to timed deadlifts, perhaps at 120kg.

    I did heavy shoulders before, turned out to be medium shoulders really as I have exhausted the dumbells in our gym, good job we're moving - shoulders felt blitzed before the deadlift kicked off but didn't feel it held me back at all during. Slotted in 5 sets of lat pull downs afterwards - there was no plan - it just felt like that was the right exercise to do - bit of Zen's attitude there to the timed deadlifts - just slot them in wherever feels good.

    No, just timed deadlift work.

    All my other timed stuff is on other days.

    Ok, I'm in (sorta)

    I did a circuit workout of

    10x215 Deadlift (about 1.2 x my bodyweight)
    10x40 Cable Crunch
    10x135 angled calf raise

    60s rest/circuit, finished the entire workout in around 17 minutes. Any ideas where I should start my official entry? Max DL is/was 405 a few months ago, and I think I could squeeze another 5 on there on a good day.

    i'd say give level 3 a shot and see what kinda progress you can make doing that level three times. :tucool:

    of course you can start lower and go for more reps.

    or higher. doesn't matter....

    as zen would say...

    Trap bar deadlift for time (hooks): (11,7,6,6,5,5)x410# in 9:48

    That's 40 reps @ 410# in under ten minutes.

    These were at 1.78xbodyweight, so these were level 4.

    EDIT: I just checked and this is a rate of 100,408 pounds per hour. I had a goal of 100,000 pounds per hour over ten minutes, which requires 16,667# in 10 minutes. Missed by 267# - had I thought it through in advance I would have tried to pull one more in the remaining 12 seconds.

    Offical entry:

    1.5xbw (178) = 240lbs

    50 @ 8:39
    55 @ 10:00

    Grip was the biggest limiter, I decided not to use straps or hooks, just a mixed grip. I'm sweating like a pig. :)

    50x240# in 8:39 is quite good. Getting only 5 in the next 81 seconds suggests how gassed you must have been from going hard during the first 50 reps. It's amazing how much harder the last reps are compared to the first reps in timed deadlifts.

    Yeah, I was a little disappointed. I was doing sets of 7 at a pretty good clip. My goal was to hit 6 sets of 7 and a set of 8, but I did more like:

    7,7,7,7,8,6,4,4,5

    I intended only to stop long enough after I hit 50 to jot the number down, but ended up taking too long to get set. I think I was still more grip limited than cardio. I'll probably do level 4 with straps.

    I didn't post my timed deadlift work last week as it has fallen out of the standard format in here...but hey, it is still timed and it is still deadlifting so....

    My current programme is all timed and is all supersetted for 15 minutes. Deadlift has fallen in with DB front raises (although I'm changing that up next week as they put too much strain on the lower back in the supposed rest period from DL)

    Anyway....last week I got BW (105kg) x 50 in 15 mins - I'm limited to 5 reps per superset.

    Today I hit 52 reps on 105kg (BW)

    105kg x 65 @ level 2 in 15.00 (limited to 5 reps per set as working with a buddy) - 13 more than last week - time to up the weight and lose the buddy, I was still repping pretty smoothly at the end - think I'll revert back to 10 mins for DL as well.

    Thanks... I was running late since I had to pick up the baby, lift, eat, shower, and teach pipe lessons then pipe practice. I managed to slam a shake w/oats, but I really should eat another meal..

    61 reps x 105kg (level 2) in 10:00

    I need to stop messing about and up that to level 3 next time out, I need to get my DL max shifting up - all that 'strength test' banter in the 'Weights' forum has woken me up - my bench is not all that far off 1.5 x BW, I reckon I'll be there after my next 5x5 stint but my DL is only just ahead of it....a 250kg Deadlift seems absolutely impossible - to be honest I have no intention of ever getting there but 180 - 200 is worth chasing.

    Today's fun:

    Trap bar deadlifts for speed (hooks): 4x15x320#

    I wasn't able to strictly time it but it was about 9:30.
