    Today was the first day of the coan/phillipi deadlift routine and damn it was a lot more grueling than what i was expecting. I'm sort of sick but not deathly ill and i really really felt like deadlifting today so i went to the gym and hit it anyway. Once i got warmed up i realized it would've been ideal to stay home. So if i don't feel significantly better tomorrow (significantly better would basically mean i'm perfectly fine, cause it's not that bad right now) then i'll just take the days off as needed. So the routine was;

    Deadlift (75%): 1x2 @ 135 kg
    Speed deadlift (60%): 8x3 @ 107.5 kg (90 sec rest b/w sets)
    3 circuits (rest 90sec between exercises, 2-3 minutes between circuits):
    Stiff-leg deadlift: 8 reps
    Bent over row: 8 reps
    Underhand (reverse) grip lat pulldown: 8 reps
    Arched back good morning: 8 reps

    So the actual deadlifting was quite easy with really low intensity but it was a workout trying to pull as quickly as possible, so i was still somewhat fatigued by the time i had to do the circuit. The circuit is just brutal, stiff leg deadlifts torch my lower back, then holding a heavy weight bent over for another 8 reps, reverse lat pulldown is a nice break and then straight back to torching the lower back.

    It was my first time actually doing good mornings so i went relatively light on those, but now i know what i'm doing more or less i'll start to add some weight.

    It's a really fun workout in the end though, a lot harder to do than it looks on paper as well.

    Tomorrows bench if i'm recovered, more or less a heavy push day.
