Following the prior week's insane number of front squat PRs, last week saw an even higher number of deadlift 1-rep max PRs - I think we counted nearly four dozen lifetime bests!  It's always an exciting day in the gym when heavy deadlift singles and/or 1RMs are on the board, as it's usually the biggest lift in the repertoire for nearly every athlete... and something about standing up a bunch of heavy weights just feels AWESOME.  

Congratulations to all of the athletes who set new PRs!  Your hard work during our last strength cycle(s) paid off in spades!

The blue notations in the lefthand margin note every PR!
