WSFSB III: ME Lower Body

All Notation: Weight x Reps x Sets

Deficit Deadlifts off 2" Block: 145x5, 180x3, 215x3, 250x2, 285x1, 320x1, 355x1, 365x0.
Bulgarian Split Squats w/Front Foot Elevated: 70x10x4

Leg Curls: 90x12x4

Blast Strap Ab Fallouts (Knees on Mat): Failure at 4, 4, 3, 3.

Seated Calf Raises: 60x12x4

20 minutes on the Elliptical.

355 on the deadlifts was one ugly rep, but I had to give 365 a shot. My lower back started to get tired halfway through the sets so I think maybe I was just overtrained on this movement/pulling from the floor. Afterwards, I dropped the weight to 135 and began experimenting with a setup for the reverse band deadlifts that I want to use the next time I deadlift. My first impression is that I will like these better than rack pulls based on feel alone.
