I felt like a noob

Deadlifts for the first time in ooooh.. 10 years? havent done them since i fucked up my back.. felt good. Granted im not doing any weight. did 4 sets of 15 with a monstrous 125 and then 3 sets of 10 with mega 225 lol. the weight was pretty easy but could definatly feel it after doing my whole back work out first.

not trying to be a DL monster or anything, just trying to build some strength up in my spinal erectors at the same rate as im doing the ab work to help support my lower back more.

oh well.. just felt like sharing.

Fuck it, sometimes it's just as hard to work properly with light weights as it is to go at it with heavy weight, especially for a beast such as yourself. Progress isn't always measured by lifting heavier weights. Good job with it.

yeah.. im definatly not taking any chances with my back.. just nice slow controlled reps.. as long as i can make progress im happy
I can say that it felt weird doing them after not having even tried in so long. definatly have to get back into the groove of the motion. since its not something i have done in so long it definatly will take some getting used to.

15lbs for 12 on calf extensions isn't much for me, but it's better than the bodyweight extensions for 5 that I started with.

Don't even consider the weight Dave. You already know this, but it's not worth risking your back to stroke your ego.
