405 Deadlift Yesterday

Not Josh
Test day was really crowded yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to get a picture of Josh, but he got a 405 deadlift, 30 pound PR.  I remember when he came to us about a year and a half ago and spent a whole Saturday trying to get 225. But what's even better about this PR is that Josh has learned to listen to his body and not let ego get in the way. About 4 months ago he was starting to get some overuse injuries. Rather than push through, he dialed the weight back and spent a lot time playing with position and learning how to lift in a way that worked for his body. Yesterday's PR was the first heavy day in 4 months.

Don't be afraid to drop the weight and relearn your movement, you may initially feel like you're going backwards, but in the end you'll be stronger - and not injured.
