Something, Something, Deadlift (Slight Return)

Reverse Band Deadlift: 135x5, 170x5, 205x5, 240x3, 275x2, 310x1, 345x1, 380x0. Better than last time. I wanted to perfect this and give this a shot on July 5th as my last workout. After reading a few articles, I went into the gym today and tweaked my technique: I stood close enough to the bar where my shins were touching it, tightened up my setup, took the slack out of the arms before pulling, and pulled back as well as up. While 380 wouldn't go up, I might try it again next week but after a 365 single. We'll see.

Oh, and I went in and weighed myself at 212 pounds, putting me within 2 pounds of my 210 goal weight for this meet. What's odd is that I was able to drop some weight without the aerobics. So, maybe it's time to add them back in, eh?
