Woooooohoooo!! Heavy fxcking BACK!! You know what that means...time to DEADLIFT!! I used to never deadlift. People would say it will make you waist wide and blah blah blah. Well you know what makes your waist?? Eating like shit makes your waist wide. So do fucking deadlifts. Deadlifts do not restructure your bones, but they do have a tremendous impact and work more muscle simultaneously than any other exercise, even more than the squat. The deadlift is probably the most effective exercise for developing core strength, which are the central muscles of the body (low back, glutes, abdominals) that support the body in every movement and position.
We are sticking to our 5x5 set/rep working scheme. Make sure you are warming up appropriately. It should take anywhere from 2-4 warm-up sets before getting to your working set weight. Just an idea of what to aim for for these sets, you can aim for about 70-75% of your 1RM for your deadlift. I just PR'd at 355 last Sunday, so my working sets will be anywhere around 250-260 for my 5x5... Keep track so you can try and bump up next week!!!
Take your deadlifts seriously because they will only help you become better and stronger in every way!!
