My Road to a 4x Bodyweight Deadlift: Episode 25

My Training Log

Week 8, Day 1: Max Effort Lower Body

Amazing day.

Hit a huge all-time PR sumo deadlift (515 x 3 from 4″ mats) and overall just felt really, really strong. 

Big confidence boost of a training session and couldn’t be happier with my current rate of progress.

1) 4″ Plate Raised Sumo Deadlift: 3 x 3 @ 515lbs

Here’s the big personal record.

I’ve actually never held more than 500lbs in my hands so to hit 515lbs for 3 easy reps was an incredible feeling.

Over the next few months I’ll progressively lower the mats until I’m pulling from the floor. If all goes as planned, I’ll be able to do this weight using a full range of motion at the end of 12-weeks.

2) Front Loaded Barbell Step-Up: 3 x 6/leg @ 135lbs

Still not able to squat because my hips are bothering me so I stuck with Front Loaded Step-Ups.

Phenomenal drill and absolutely destroyed my quads, glutes, and abdominals.

HERE is my instructional video on how to perform the perfect step-up.

3) Barbell Hip Thrust: 3 x 12 @ 275lbs

3b) Superman Push-Up: 3 x 10
