Deadlift - 345lbs

I had actually only planned to do my previous PB twice to work on my grip, but thought I should try more weight.

I matched my previous PB in deadlift today of 335lbs. I didn't try to improve. Though I'm planning on trying 345 in two weeks (three more workouts).

It depends, there are benefits to eating just before or after. For most people though it would be best to eat a small meal/snack before and after.

Today's workout was really just to try out the chains, and also to work on power (strength and speed). I'm looking forward to working with chains in the future, and in the squat too.

Yeah, they were awesome today, but I think I need to fine-tune my set up to maximize their usefulness. And soon (~2 weeks) I think I'll grab another set of chains to up the total weight to ~30 (they're 16 now).

It is a sign of psychological health if you can miss a workout without punishing yourself. Every once in a while everyone needs a day off.

Went to the hardware store today to pick up my chains for lifting. Ended up getting 4 4foot lengths of 5/16ths inch chain, along with two large carabiners to attach them to the barbell. In all they weigh about 16lbs and cost 47.11$ It should be easy to upgrade to heavier chain in the future too, if ...
