    Exclamation Deadlift PR

    Monday, I pulled 275 for 5. I'm 5'8", 175lbs, 22 years of age.

    The set consisted of, after 4 light warmup sets: 190, 210, 230, 250, then 275. All for 5 reps. Used straps on the last set as my grip failed repeatedly when I got the bar to my knees.

    Working on slowly gaining weight, getting up to 180lbs.

    Right now using a twice-a-week lifting split, like always. Monday is my 5x5 day, Thursday my 4x8. Workouts consist of three lower body lifts, two upper body, two abs (weighted), and then a 10 minute complex set of moderate-to-high-rep auxilliary work. Workouts last about 75 minutes, from dynamic warmups to static stretching cooldowns.

    Also, doing 12 hours a week pure karate work, more when I can get to class.

    Life is good.

    nice dude.

    i just hit a pr on my bench the other day too. 200 at 136. i was pumped. i also pulled 285 twice a few weeks ago, but i guess i didn't lock completely out. i still consider it pulled though. im gonna try again next time i dead.

    i been training with a bunch of power lifters lately and my poundages have been going through the roof. a few of my buddies have actually hinted they thought i was on the juice which kind of upset me. i'm getting stronger sure, but mostly im getting much better technique. i just keep learning to cheat better ... i guess this is what power lifting is all about .

    unfortunatley my jiujitsu progress is coming along much more slowly as i only train twice a week and i still cant do the oly lifts for ****.

    my goals are 250 on bench and 300 pull by halloween and to perform a proper clean by mid july.
    where's my beer?
