615 (279kg) deadlift on eleiko bar for a 30 pound PR on this bar. First rep felt like an 8 RPE so I was going for a double at 9 RPE but suffered a minor hamstring strain trying it. Still really proud of this PR though. To turn this injury into a training tip - there will be setbacks at some point, guaranteed. Sometimes you can do everything right, have everything figured out and things don't go the way you'd like. Always turn setbacks into a positive. I took 10 steps forward, 1 step back, so not too bad in the long run. Going to bench something big at the meet in 2 weeks and save the big total for later. Thanks again to @savvysavit and @its_vuuutuan for all your support today!
