- Finally, someone explained it to me. .
No, this isn't some Insta deep quote to sound worldly, or motivational anything. It's an answer to a question.

Falle mis intentos de bench de 92.5 kg por mover la cabeza, aunque se sintieron muy fáciles.
Compense rompiendo mi mejor deadlift.
Agradezco a quienes me acompañaron.

Deadlifts blow every other exercise out of the water in terms of total body effectiveness, HANDS DOWN!! by @knowgains
For starters, deadlifts work more muscles simultaneously than any other movement (yes, including squats). The deadlift essentially forces the whole body to grow.
IT’S NOT JUST A LOWER BODY MOVEMENT!
Since dead’s recruit the most muscles to perform they help build the most muscle which in turn will help you burn the most body fat.
Deadlifts are also tops in terms of strengthening the core. When deadlifting you hit all the surrounding and supporting muscles of the waist, backside, hips and, of course, lower back. Want that sexy core? Deadlift more!
Another misconception is that deadlifts are a gateway to snapping your back in half. It’s actually the opposite, when performed correctly, deadlifts PREVENT injuries by strengthening the muscles around critical tendons and ligaments.
If you can’t deadlift for some reason or you are struggling with proper form, try doing a hex bar deadlift. It’s easier in terms of set up and you don’t have to go so low. A second option is putting plates under the plates on the bar shortening the distance you have to lift the weight. This will decrease the range of motion making it a bit easier to maintain proper form through the lift.
If they aren’t already, make sure deadlifts are a part of your current strength training routine. Regardless of some people’s opinion, there is no better way to train your total body.

- Squats 395 lbs. x 1
Deadlifts 425 lbs. x 1
Bench 260 lbs. x 1
The heavy comp singles from this week, overall a really strong showing when it came to the singles. Squats, I shifted a little bit on my heels and the knees came in a bit on the way up but still felt really flat on my feet. Deadlifts, I was a little bold (see: lazy) and took a 30 lbs. jump from 395 lbs. to 425 lbs. and it still went surprisingly smooth. The boldness carried over to bench where I took a 5 lbs. jump from last week (I'm usually more conservative with 2.5 lbs. jumps) and it went incredibly fast. I'm really hoping to hit a 300 lbs. bench by the time of the meet in March.
