Strength Cycle Week 7, part 2

Deadlift x 5: 225 - 255 - 285 (pr)
Deadlift x 21: 215 (unbroken)
Press x 5: 75 - 85 - 97
Press x 21: 67 (failed rep 20)
Split jerk x 3: 95-115-120-125-130

I didn't have Rebecca there to yell at me for the deadlifts, so I think I had some degradation of form on the very heavy set. I really need to remember to bring chalk with me - my grip is failing even with mixed grip, just cause it's so damn heavy. The big set was not as unbroken as it's been previously - I had to stop a couple times to regrip and take a (single) breath.

I was pleased to get 97 on the presses, until I looked at last time and saw that's the weight I did then - damn! It was only hard on the last rep, so I think 100 is doable. I really didn't think I'd make it as far as I did on the big set - failing on the 20th rep just sucks.

The split jerks went well - they're much easier for me than regular push jerks. I got 3x130, which was my previous 1RM - and it was a very UGLY 1RM. I think I could definitely get 135 now, but I don't know about 140.
