here’s the 605 deadlift. this was actually a chalk-less PR for me… lol. I honestly don’t remember the last time I performed a heavy deadlift without straps, and I don’t really have a reason to use chalk when I use straps. So I just forgot, realized after the lift. Glad to see my grip was no issue.
345 bench press here. Yes, I realize I didn’t really pause it. I would have done it again, with a pause, but my elbow sprain is really giving me issues, so it wasn’t worth another attempt. Sorry T-Nation. Since this clearly wasn’t a true max, hopefully you guys can let me slide on that.
This was actually the most painful of the lifts that I performed. As I’ve mentioned in my logs, I’ve barely squatted over the past 2 years because of patella tendinitis. It sucks. So this was not a PR, but I’m still happy with it. Only about 30 lbs off my all time best.
EDIT: this was 525 lbs.
Nice work @flipcollar and some great beard gainz too
Working on volume, so no 1RM attempts for me this week. Sorry all.
Is ur beard a pr too?
it is! this is easily the longest it has ever been. Last time I shaved was 13 months ago.
Thought I’d be hitting singles in my program around now but turns out I’m not:/ Sorry folks, no total for me.
Tested maxes tonight and am putting these up because I said I would take part in this. The numbers are not great compared to you strong guys on here but it’s important to me to follow through with what I say.
120 x 1
130 x 1
140 x 1
100 x 1 (didn’t bother video this as I was sure 110 would go up)
110 x 0 fail just wouldn’t go up. This is a weight I have hit pressed for a double before but not tonight.
110 x 0 fail again
155 x 1
165 x 1 matched prev PR
175 x 0 got it about 2 inches off the floor and it stopped dead.
What’s with you guys and the complete inflexibility? Jeez, it’s not like I had 1rm’s on squat, deadlift or bench programmed.
Me either I just hit a single in training and used that…
Trying to stick to the program and trust the process.
i know, i know, i’m just giving you shit. My coach wasn’t particularly pleased that I did this without telling him. He found out through instagram, lol.
Agree with this, just hit some singles and put them up. They can’t be more shit than mine
Dead — 515
Total- 1115. 85 lbs short of my goal for 2018.
If I totaled my best lifts of 2018 I would still be short. I’m proud of those numbers though. For having lifted for 1.5 years I’m not feeling bad for a natural raw lifter.
lol I might as well just include the first rep of each set for this Virtual meet haha
not bad at all for such a short time in the gym. What are your goals for this year? 1200 total should come easily.
I want to hit a 3 plate bench. I’ve hit a 275.
Squat 495, DL 585
I like it! Those are some serious numbers.
I@TriednTrue tagged me in this get me going again. It is very discouraging to have to keep starting over, yet… Here I am! Apparently I haven’t had enough soul crushing disappointment yet. Not where I wanted to be, or even where I was, but better than I was a few months ago, so I’ll take it!
Total was 445
And yes I know the form was not spectacular on this, but it DID go up. So I am counting it!
