Deadlifts are still hard: Thursday WOD

Forged Fitness is focused on strength training regularly and today was deadlifts:
I did a warmup set at 75 and 95 lbs (8 reps for each) then I started adding more weight:
115 lbs x 3 reps
135 lbs x 3 reps
155 lbs x 3 reps
The 155 lbs did me in though, my back protested and I was pretty stiff and sore so I quit here.  I stretched and got on the Airdyne bike and biked for 15 minutes. By the time I got off the bike, I was feeling better but still a little sore. I went directly over to the chiropractor for an adjustment and then iced it when I got home.  I feel much better now but think I will rest up today and do a run in the morning.  More core work and probably more deadlifting regularly will help!
