I did my usual workout tonight and had quite a while left before my other half was going to be finished so thought I would do some extra shoulders. I did some side lat raises and shrugs to finish off my shoulders as they didnt feel too bad after my workout.

Then I noticed my other half was doing deadlifts at 200kg (440lbs) so I thought i would jump in and have a go, not at 200kg though. lol

I have not done heavy deadlifts since before christmas so was a bit cautious when my other half left 100kg (220lbs) on the bar. The most I have done is 135kg (297lbs) when i was really training heavy.

But I felt good so what the hey, give it a go! I did 10 reps which actually felt pretty easy too, so not lost my touch and feel like I could have easily done more.

So being as vain as I am, plus wanting to check form I asked him to take some pictures of me doing them and thought I would share.

I dont think they are too bad actually. I might try to get a video next time. All of these tools are really helpful because they will all go into my final journey write up.

I am just really pleased that although I am not lifting heavy I have not lost my strength.

    Thanks for the comment NancyAnne, it is so hard to know whether your form is out without either watching a video or looking at pictures. Unless of course you injure yourself, lol.

    I find the videos and pictures really helpful and often do it for the lads if they are slightly out so they can watch it back and then improve the next set.

    Very good! I am still chicken to do deads without a spotter. I don't know why they intimidate me so much, but they do! You look in perfect form, though!
