    I am completely drained for about an hour after a Heavy deadlift day. Dont want to stand or even move.

    btw I failed at 455 x 1 today. Couldnt even break it off the ground.:wtc::sadwavey:

    Not when I do singles, only when i do 20 rep deads. I almost died after 275x20 a couple months ago

    After my failed attempt at 455 I did 315 x 10 and 225 x 18. Thats what killed me.

    They seperate the men from the panty-wearers. Nothing takes more out of you than high rep deads. Personally, I don't think I've ever gained anything from high rep deads, hence whey I stick to 3-5 rep sets now.

    i usually do 5x5

    so its been 355 x 5 x 5 lately

    my last PR I set was about a month ago and it was 425 x 2 :hs: now I'm working up past it, gonna try 435x1 next DL day

    and yes I feel fucking dead on the last set of my 5x5 work sets

    if I do my 5RM I feel like puking....



    1 or 2 reps of real heavy shit or 8+ reps of real light shit doesn't really bother me too much... but after a 1RM I have to lay or sit because it just drains my body so bad that I wuss out of standing up.

    i get burned out after my clean and press day, cardio+weights ftmfw (kinda)

    heavy DLs burn you out so much more, when i used to do high rep dl (10 reps) it would be lame, now i do 5 reps and it gets my pumped and sweaty

    while lifting I feel great. its about 20 minutes after I feel like jello.


    I am 6'3" But ive been cutting for a couple months and Im down to 191lbs.:eek3: Im a fairly skinny fuck now.

    PR as of now is 415 x 2. Honestly Its near impossible for me to set PRs right now cause of the caloric deficit. I am sooo much stronger with fat on me.
