Week 5, Day 2, deadlifts and stuff

It's not ideal for me to deadlift the day after a hard squat day but the rest of my week is spoken for and I'll be away at a conference Sunday-Wednesday.  Managed to get in some pretty good work so with about 7 days to recover, I should be ready to get back on schedule next week.

Deficit deadlifts:  315x5, 405x5, add belt, 455x5, 455x6

2" deficit.  The sets with 455 felt faster than the last time I did them even though my back was fatigued from yesterday's squats.  I think the extra emphasis on stiff legged deadlift is helping.

Chins:  5, 5, 5  Done after deadlifts, these were much harder.

Seated cable rows:  130x10, 130x10, 130x8, 130x8    

Dumbbell Arnold Press:  45x10, 45x10, 45x8, 45x7

Seated face pulls:  40x12, 40x10, 40x8, 40x8

Lateral raises:  25x15, 25x15, 25x15   15 reps per set included 5-8 partial reps used to prolong the burn

Skipped tricep and bicep work.  I expect that if I can get to the hotel gym, I should be able to get in some isolation chest, shoulder and arm work.
