Thanks man! Well I can do 405 for like 13-16 so I know I can pull 500 or close to it. Today everything felt REALLY light so decided to keep going for the 20lbs jumps to see where I ended up. The 3rd rep of 485 I started losing tight back position so I didn’t add more reps.

Notes:
Hit my lifetime goal of a 500lb deadlift!!! I currently weight 178.4 (still am 5’7 tho lol) as of this morning after a dump. Squats and BB Rows/Chin-Ups have a DIRECT carry over to my deadlift! My last rep was a bit grindy, but it’s ok. I know I can pull 500x1 with ease.

I was too hyped and decided to end the workout on a good note lol. I never yell and I’m not a grunter, but at end of my 500 set, i let out a big Ric Flair WOOOOOOOOO haha


#1558

Awesome. Way to go man!


#1559

Awesome Nutty just awesome and you’re allowed a little yell after that effort.


#1560

Great job Nutty! I’m going down the road to my first 500 pull hopefully within the next 8 weeks! Repping a lifetime goal must’ve felt awesome, you earned that “WOOOO”.


#1561

For the next 6 weeks, my programming will change once again. I finally have a workout partner (my brother in law)! He wants to get “big and strong”, so might be perfect time to add some quality mass to my frame.

It will BBB but condensed into 3 days.

Back Squat 531
OH Press 531
Bench Press BBB

Deadlift 531
RDL BBB

Squat BBB (SSB most likely)
Bench Press 531
OH Press BBB

I think this will work pretty well. I was doing Beefcake for a bit, so honestly will only add an extra 20 minutes to my workouts overall each day.

#1565

Dude, that’s absurd…


#1566

Lol it’s not crazy at all. I would have thought the same when I was only squatting 225, but 405 moves for me like butter now. Don’t get me wrong it’s still really heavy (at least for squats), but the weight feels explosive.


#1567

So in other Nutty news before my lifting session I dunked on someone today for the first time in my life. The gym went bonkers!!!

I felt bad for the guy cause he was 6’3 or 6’4 but I just happen to split the ball between his hands when he was going up to block me. I split the defense at the 3 point line and basically it was 1 vs 1 going to the hoop and I have no idea what got into me but my body just reacted and I drove in and just jumped lol.

Probably one of the most interesting feelings in my life. Never felt like I straight up dominated someone before haha.

Everyone was like WTFFFFF. They kept saying how could I dunk when my calves looked so small, but then I lifted my shorts to show off my quads and then they understood quickly how I can jump so high lol.

Guys kept talking to me after seeing me deadlift. It was interesting to say the least lol.

@JMaier31 how would you feel if someone 5’7 dunked on you haha


#1568

I’d like to think that wouldn’t happen. Usually the first guy of the floor wins so if I can see it coming then I don’t contest it.

That’s some serious hops!


#1569

Yeah if that guy just closed his hands vs opening them up he would have blocked me good, but I was a step faster and I think that caused him to react and jump lol.

Thanks man! I’ve always been able to jump and flip but now all the strength definitely translates to a higher jumping ability thats for sure!

But I realized it’s a big dangerous. If I got blocked good either by him or the rim I would have flipped back and maybe fucked something up lol. No more dunking for me that’s for sure. The risk vs reward not worth it to me.


#1570

This log is insane. The weights you’re moving combined w a 5’7” dunk on someone is crazy!


#1571

Thanks man! This log is all the ups and downs of lifting. I still remember the first time I squatted 135 for reps. I was so happy lol.

I don’t think I’m much different than a lot of people that start lifting. Only difference is at some point I decided to just put my head down and work!

I was blessed by god or evolution to have unlocked some sick genetics during the process.

Glad to have you following!
