Notes: Workout Notes

What a day... a friend in the gym convinced me to go for some max pulls on deadlift instead of the normal (370lbxMax)
Lots of fun, the video will be up soon. I believe that my two current problems with deadlift are:
1: Not enough experience/mental hardiness developed to fully grind through the rep (and this will be a must to lift real weights in competition)
2: Not enough strength at the bottom/explosiveness to get into the lift

I will be switching Deficit Deadlifts for either Glute Ham Raises or Good Mornings after I complete Week 3.

Which exercise should I drop for Deficit Deadlifts? Do you agree with my assessment? Any input would be appreciated guys!
