Thursday Morning HR: 67.6 HRV: 75.9 – Rest Day
Friday Morning HR:61.6 HRV 81.1 – Deadlift
Saturday Morning (today) HR: 55.1 HRV: 82.3
Body weight: 223
Looks like deloading on Wednesday paid off. My HRV was still poor on Thursday but jumped back up for yesterdays Deadlift workout. I can definitely feel the difference physically when my HRV is poor and when it’s high.
Friday’s Workout looked like this;
Deadlift: 135 1×5, 225 1×5, 315 1×5, 36 1×1, 405 1×1, 425 1×1, 445 1×1, 465 2×1 I stopped there as my back started to act up a bit at this point. I’m anxious to put some more weight on the bar and move something decent but it’s just not worth a major set back if my back gets messed up.
RDL’s: 225 2×10
Chest Supported BB Row (pause at top): 135 1×10, 155 3×10 Sit-ups on GHR: 3×10
Chin Ups: 3×10 GHR: 3×8
Overall, I was happy with the workout. I’m going to focus on strengthening my back to keep a solid neutral spine when deadlifting. If my technique is flawless usually there is no pain. This is a blessing and a curse. I had a big meal after and a great sleep last night. I was pretty surprised to see my HRV so high the day after a workout. I’m sure if I had done some heavier deadlifting with more sets it wouldn’t be so high. 465 really isn’t going to stress my body out that much.
