Strange Deadlift Workout and Superset

Strange thing happened in today's workout.

It was another session with 3-4 second eccentrics.

I did 3 sets of deadlifts at 315 for 5 reps with a 3 second lowering phase and a 1 second pause at the bottom.

In the 3rd set, the first rep came off the floor easier than every other rep.

Very interesting.

Maybe it was a fluke.

Should be some interesting upper back DOMS on Tuesday AM.

Full workout went like this:

1A) Deadlift
1B) Email... seriously. haha.

2A) Barbell Hip Thrust
2B) Hang Clean (light, long time since I've done these)

Great workout.

And today's kickbutt mindset tip:
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Don't dwell on past mistakes, that gets you nowhere. Focus on what you can & will do today, tomorrow, & the rest of your life, and all of the great things that will happen because of your actions. Get strong, be strong, stay strong

You will need to make hard, uncomfortable choices in the short-term in order to have long-term success, progress, and happiness. But don't worry, it'll only hurt a bit right now, but you'll feel better for a long, long, long, long time.
