Re: Need scaling advice for Diane today

Stats in case you need them...32/m/150/5'9

Thanks for input.

From my experience, I plan to go for the following in order.
1) Form
2) Match the Rx'd weight
3) improve the times

For my first Diane, I added weight to the deadlift as the rep numbers decreased. I was unsure of how far I could push this exercise. Each time we see Diane I hope to increase the weight.
21 x 185
15 x 205
9 x 225

21 x 190
15 x 210
9 x 225

21 x 195
15 x 215
9 x 225


Depending on how I feel, I may increase those numbers faster.
