(Okay, for those of you who want to reply that you use that weight to warm up for curls, just keep on walking. Actually, fire away…and then just keep on walking…)
After a little over a year of this iron game, starting at a scrawny 164 and currently at a scrawny 178 (at 6’ tall), I finally need to go buy some more plates for my deadlift. That’s right, I finally hoisted all 300 pounds of my first olympic set…and it felt really good too…
Oh, and tonight was the first night to use chalk. It’s my new #1 recommended “supplement” that every lifter (especially for deadlifts) should have.
