5/3/1: Round 1 Wave 1 Workout 2.

Sumo Deadlifts (305 Training Max): 135x5, 145x5, 155x5, 190x3, 220x2, 235x5, 250x5, 265x7 (Rep Out Set). It's been such a long time since I've given the sumo deadlift this much attention, and it already feels as if I've found a long lost friend. Felt good, did notice that my glutes were tiring out pretty quick, though.

Conventional Deadlifts: 170x15x3. Who needs cardio when you have this?

Bulgarian Split Squats w/Front Foot Elevated: BWTx15x3. The original plan was 40x15x3 but due to the deadlifts or to not having done single leg work in a long time, 40 pounds owned me after 8 reps so I ditched the dumbbells. And even BWT owned me. So I'll probably just do 5 sets of 10 with something ridiculously light and keep adding weight every 2 weeks. Tomorrow, my glutes and quads are gonna scold me!!!

Leg Curls: 75x15x3

Pallof Press Isometric Holds: 3 30-second holds with 15 pounds. I was shot by the time I got to the ab work, and even 15 pounds felt tough.

Ab Roller Isometric Holds: 3 8-second holds. The goal was 15 seconds but even 8 seconds was pushing it. So I guess I know that stability is a weakness, eh?
