Isnt really a PR, but it is fun. I know I can do more than this if I did it fresh, but this was after 12 sets of speed triples full rom with the earrings, and 12 sets of back work. Ill have to try these one day fresh.

Was going to start a thread about when you get hammered BY your PR, instead of nailing it. But figured here was a good place to ask.
Today I went to deadlift, and I like to work up to a single every second cycle on 5/3/1. Today though, what would normally be a good, final set of warm up - around 4 plates but, working up to it, 3 plates felt heavy as hell. 3.5 was a struggle and 4 was almost a max effort. I thought I was going to be sick pulling it.
What do you do after getting punished so hard by something that you can normally do?
I've been training for a while and know that not every session is a PR hitting one. But I can usually atleast work up to my old PR, or get within 10kg or so. This is just demoralising.
I haven't been this aggitated about missing lifts in a long time.
