This is my first ever log on this site at least. I can say I’ve changed some minor parts of my goal but it’s always been the same. Being big and as strong as my body and mind allow me. Last winter I came so close to deadlifting 500. I was going through my lifting cycle great, I felt good, progress was there, but hurt myself during my cycle on a 450. I backed down, healed up, and put the deadlift behind me. I trained differently. This past summer, I got back into a cycle, killed workouts, hit a 425x5 and I swore I was within weeks.
At that point in time, I was fighting through serious pain in my low back and IT band so it ended there. Over 2 months in PT with no pulling or squatting. I put the 500 in the back of my mind and focused more bodybuilding style training enjoying the creative workout styles which I’ll continue to do but ripping 500 god damn pounds is what I’m after again. Deadlift day is Monday so workouts will start getting posted then. I’m using a similar style program that I did in the summer it’s incredibly high volume, emulated from George Leeman, with a lot of exercises so needless to say I’ll have to sleep and eat quite a bit.
