The Total: The Movie 3/20/11

Untitled from Gym Belle on Vimeo.


Here's how today's total went:


  • First attempt: 105 lbs
  • Second attempt: 110 lbs  (fail)
  • Third attempt: 110 lbs (fail)


  • First attempt: 55 lbs
  • Second attempt: 60 lbs (PR - note the happy dance)
  • Third attempt: 65 lbs (PR)


  • First attempt: 165 lbs
  • Second attempt: 175 lbs (PR)
  • Third attempt: 190 lbs (PR)

Total = 360 (PR by 35 lbs (see my last Total here))

Between deadlifts numbers 2 and 3, I'm chatting while I swap out the 5 lb plates for 10s.  Look closely and you'll see that I put 10 lbs on one side and 15 lbs on the other.  Whoops!  That was awkward.  On the plus side, I was only planning on trying for 185 and I did 190.
