Deadlift 1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Key things to keep in mind while deadlifting heavy.

Maintain your lumbar curve.  Weight on the heels.  Shoulders slightly in front of the bar on set-up.  Bar stays in contact with the legs throughout the movement.  Hips and chest rise at the same rate.  Stay strong and stand up.

    Well, that wasn’t too bad for my first real series of deadlifts in a long, long time:
    Warm up = 3 rounds of 3 mins jumprope, 1min rest w./10 pushups and 10situps during the min. Then onto the fun:
    1-225 lbs
    2-275 lb
    3-275 lb
    4-285 lb
    5-285 lb
    6-225 lb
    7-225 lb and that was all she wrote:)

  7. cherie :

    Charlie,
    Looks like you were smart on 6 and 7 and maintained form. Nice work, when are you getting your butt down here and working out with us?

  8. Hoovers :

    The site looks good guys! I agree with Mike, I want to see Matt vs King Kong!

  9. matt :

    Yeah Hoovers, we miss you two! Thanks for the referal. We’ll send out an invite to the pain storm. Maybe around our grand opening.

  10. Charlie :

    Well, the rental helicopter is in the shop for repairs, so I may have to take the Volvo!:) Time, my friend, time…soon I’ll get there. I have to check out your schedule – don’t forget about Sunday! Eldo?
    I’ll check that CFV schedule to see what sort of torture I can get into over the weekend!! When is the Grand Opening by the way?

  11. Matt :

    Charlie, the Grand Opening will be around the new year. We have a good real estate agent on the hunt for the perfect place. We’re getting closer everyday. Be prepared everyone, it’s going to be cool.
