Comments:

* I performed deadlifts immediately after pull-ups and Romanian deadlifts with minimal rest between exercises. As  result I just didn’t seem to have the strength to add 5 lbs this workout for the usual 5 to 7 singles. I also found that I had to round my back compared to the last workout in which keeping my back straight and ripping the weight off the floor was easy. I recall performing deadlifts the last workout in the PM after full resting from my AM workout. I would like to make mention of the times in which I do each exercise throughout the day but am only able to record so much data. Right now I am more concerned with the total volume done with an emphasis on continually overtraining.

Comments:

Only the concentric portion of each deadlift was completed. The weight was dropped using bumper plates. Everything was kept light to focus on speed.
