CV deads didn't feel really strong. Trying to use a belt but I'm just not feeling it. So far I'm probably 50# stronger without it.

I tried Jefferson's tonight and they felt great (other than topping out lol). Really felt them in the legs and the mid back and lats. I can definitely increase the weight on these a bunch but I want to work the form some more before I start pushing to substantial of a weight as I'm adjusting my feet a bit during the reps and such trying to get the weight displaced properly.

The Vulcan actually felt okay even with the crappy showing, probably all of the pulls took some strength as I did a good chunk of them DO. I ended up with a wicked flexor pump from them.
