100x2sets
140x5
180x2 p.b
180x3 (poor depth )

Deadlift
140x5
180x3 d.o.h raw
220x1 raw *very clean
220x3 belted touch and go p.b

Gym closed so end of the session.

Good session today mate, you deffo have that 240 deadlift in you. Looks like we'll need to be pulling 260 now for the yorkshires!

Yeah, i think 260 is going to be too big an ask in such short time. On the flip side I've never been good at a high deadlift so would have still been my bogey event.

Should be a good comp, think it'll be close between us.
