I have gotten up to pulling 425 raw. While I do have a belt - I have yet to start using it since I wanted to get my form down without it and get my strength up without assistance. Anyway I find now when I pull over 400 my knees kinda go "in" almost as if my knee caps were trying to touch - though they never come near it. Does this happen to anyone else?
Oh on a side note I forget where I read this but someone wrote "if you can deadlift and squat twice your body weight back to back - you would be strong enough to wrestle a bear"
I know I would never be strong enough to wrestle a bear (though my dream job when I was 8 was in fact "polar bear wrestler") does anyone else here base their progress on multiples of their bodyweight? I mean if anyone could do a feat like that and be able to O.H. press their bodyweight comfortabley for reps - ripped or not you'd be one imposing figure on this earth!
