Today is deadlift day, and I really wanted to pull well.  I’ve been in my head about pulling lately, and I needed a good day.  I was happy with 315 for 8, as that was 15# over the calculated percentage the program called for in this set.  I really want to get my pull back to pre-injury levels asap. It’s starting to wear on me.

The good mornings immediately after the heavy pull were tough.  I may need to add a warmup set here just to give myself a moment.

I decided to do sled hand over hand work for the seated row. It is good for me to keep that in the rotation.

The pullups felt solid and I hope to drop to the next band soon.

Shrugs were work today. I think I was just getting a bit fatigued here since I didn’t sleep well last night.

A superset of rear delt raises and hammer curls rounded out the day.

Overall, feeling much more positive about my pull.
