Perhaps surprisingly, I’ll admit that #GrandGoals itself is both superfluous and unimportant. Lifting an arbitrary weight (or setting some record) has very little impact on what is truly important in my life. Nor does it have a direct relationship to any of the important life goals that I have. Yes that’s correct, it something that I’m focusing on so hard and putting so much effort in really means jack shit in regards to importance in my life.
I constantly get the question about why I do touch-and-go deadlifts when dead-stop deadlifts are “better”. First let's discuss the difference between the two lifts. The dead-stop deadlift is when doing deadlift reps the full weight of the bar is released onto the floor. With the touch-n-go deadlift the weight only touches the floor without the full weight of the bar being unloaded onto the floor before the next rep is started.
