Doing Speed Dead Stop Cambered Bar Benches here then 3-count Pause Dead Stop Cambered Bar Benches later was bit much on my tender left pec, so I will do Speed Chain Benches here next time and move Speed Dead Stop Cambered Bar Benches to Week C, where I will be doing Dead Stop Cambered Bar Benches without the 3-count pause later.

Workout Time: 1:23*

I will not be doing Jump Squats and Deadlifts anymore. They are fun to do, but I don’t they are as effective for powerlifting and do not stretch me out and get me ready as much as for my afternoon workouts as doing the powerlifts in a speed fashion in the manner I will be doing them later.

I’ve always used my two-chain set for deadlifts, but that is too much weight for speed deadlifts, so for this workout, I tried my one chain set. But I had to move the connection on the leader chain, and it got jammed and took over half an hour to unjam. That got me tired out and behind. But at least after all of that, using just one chain did work out better. In fact, I might try it for regular Chain Deadlifts this afternoon.
