Knowing I had a huge feast ahead of me, I wanted to turn in a really good workout. So what better than to deadlift?
For 60 minutes I did nothing but pull. 350lbs for 100 singles. That's about 1 rep every 40 seconds.
It wasn't until almost halfway through when I thought to wear a HR monitor. The final 37 minutes of the workout I averaged 166bpm and maxed at 190. That's 100% of my age predicted maximum heart rate.
Great workout! My hands are blistered and I'm crazy sore right now but if you're going to eat like I did last night (and today) then you better be training hard!
