New PR


#1

I hit an easy 405lbs today on DL, no equipment. I know its not much, but its a personal best. It's times like this that I'm reminded why I work out- accomplishment. I feel pretty damn good.


#2

Dont feel bad about your number that puts you head and shoulders among the common man, some of use are still chasing that,sigh only 20 more lbs to go, Congratulations


#3

Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

A PR is a PR.

Keep hitting them, and you'll progress beyond your goals.

Congratulations, and keep up the good work.


#4

Good job brother. 5 plates is just around the corner.


#5

Nice Job!


#6

Awesome! Keep working at new goals and be proud of any and all PRs that come along.

Great work!


#7

Good job. Not to many men can pick up four hundred pounds. You should be proud of that .


#8

Not to hijack, but how come there isn't a standard PR thread? Is it a "build it and they will come" kind of thing? My only concern is that having a go to thread for posting PR's opens that thread up for attack by trolls, especially for folks who post without pics or those who aren't at elite strength levels.

Just a thought. Maybe we should start one and just keep a tight rein on the trolls out there.

And congrats on the PR. Hopefully one of these days I'll pony up and put up some training and progress pics.

PR = Personal Record

what's NEXT?!

Bastard


#12

I'm impressed. My PR is 120kg, something like 265, for 6 reps. And I did that yesterday so I'll confirm this next week and then try to add 5kg the week after.


#13

Nice one! I remember hitting 400lbs last year and being dead chuffed with it. Keep training hard and you'll hit 500 before long.


#14

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!


#15

Congrats, a PR is always good! BTW what is your weight & height?


#16

Awesome, keep up the good work.


#17

6'1" and 200 lbs.

I think the second best thing about actually hitting the weight was seeing all the stares from the curl junkies in the room.


#18

Their jaws probably hit the floor, talk about an ego buster. It's gotta be embarrassing to know that someone is lifting around 8 to 10 times more weight than you.

Nice job!

Good job man. A PR always gets me excited.

Keep on truckin'!
