**This World is Mine
A mere ten weeks after tricep surgery, I'm deadlifting 605 again. Want to know how?
It's not just because I rule. I mean, that's a rather major part of the equation, but most of it is busting my ass in the gym every day. Since my surgery, I've trained 6 days a week, squatting two to three times a week and deadlifting at least once. Three days a week I eat no carbs, and simply eat 5 pounds of baked chicken wings. Yes, 5 lbs of chicken wings. They're delicious. But as for deadlifting, I've been sticking to singles, doing them solid for about an hour, working up to a weight at which I fail, then backing off about 10 lbs and doing singles until I cannot, usually 15-20 sets. Then I go home, usually, after doing some ab wheel. The inclusion of the ab wheel is why I needed a belt like I needed cancer of the AIDS in this video. Sorry for the quality, but I had to do it on my cell phone.
seems to get it done. Give it a shot.
A typical week might've looked like this:
Squat 10x1x95% 1RM
Reverse Grip Bench 10x1x95% 1RM
Weighted Pullups 10x3xheavy
Deadlift 15x1x95% 1RM
Behind the Neck Push Press 5x5x8RM
Front Squat 15x1x3RM
Bent Over Row 6x3x Super fucking heavy
Bench Press or Behind the Neck Push Press 10x3x5RM
Power Cleans/Snatches/Log till I die.
Rest, or do something light
