- Kinda looking for opinions on my deadlift. I tried pulling my max again, and I got 2. Should I have got more? Just concerned about pulling it only twice. Oh well, basically increased every other lift today. Hack squats with rubber weights make you look like a beast.
I did get into a debate with the stupid weight room attendant about deadlifting. I was apparently making too much noise when I finished my sets. I will touch n go like everybody else, but when it comes to the last rep, I don't give a damn after I lock out. He gave me some bro-fitness critique on how I need to control the weight down at the very end or my workout would have been pointless. After giving him a physiology lesson, he still said other wise. Damn FLEX magazine, you scary.
Granted, I do that in between reps, but my last rep, I'll take it where I need to and put it aside. He then tried to tell me that the weight could roll away and hit someone...I laughed in his face and continued pulling. I didn't know our weight room at University was turning into a Planet Fitness. I then mentioned that fact that I was lifting on a lifting pad that sat on top of a bouncy mat flooring and he proceeded to say I could still damage the bar. I then gave him a physics lesson. Still adamant. He just couldn't handle me out pulling him by 200# I guess.
Good day today. increasing my seated calf raises was a good idea. I feel like I could go harder on these. Hack squats always my fave at the end. My quads benefit so much from these.
