stuck on deadlift

I’ll have some other things to say as well:

workout notes: weights only. rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10, went ok), bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185 (tough), incline: 10 x 135, decline: 8 x 165 (ran out of gas)
goblet squats: 6 x 25, 6 x 50 (good depth)
hex dead: 5 x 175, 1 x 225 (missed the first..2n’d attempt…OMG), 6 x 185..that getting 225 was long and painful. Yes, handles were turned down.

back stretch, then
military: standing, 10 x 50 dumbbell, 10 x 45, then 10 x 180 machine, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110
2:30 plank..then went home.

Getting the deadlift..what a slog. I’ve allowed myself to become too weak.

Politics
Elizabeth Warren gave some details about her proposed health care plan:

Senator Elizabeth Warren vowed on Friday to pass major health care legislation in her first 100 days as president, unveiling a new, detailed plan to significantly expand public health insurance coverage as a first step, and promising to pass a “Medicare for all” system by the end of her third year in office that would cover all Americans.

The initial bill she would seek to pass if elected would be a step short of the broader Medicare for all plan she has championed. But it would substantially expand the reach and generosity of public health insurance, creating a government plan that would offer free coverage to all American children and people earning less than double the federal poverty rate, or about $50,000 for a family of four, and that could be purchased by other Americans who want it.

And yes, though Warren is not my candidate, I agree with this approach.

About the politics of it:

But here is the thing: my not backing her isn’t about her not being brilliant (she is) or her not understanding policy (she does…better than anyone else running).

It really is about her skill as a politician, or lack thereof. I think that her political instincts are not good and that she only appeals to a narrow band of the electorate.
