New PRs! Thanks CW

*Please note, while all lift numbers mentioned below might be insignificant to many, they are MINE, and I'm proud of em!

About 3-4 weeks ago I posted a new 1RM PR on the deadlift @ 265lbs (sumo); today I pulled 265 for 5 beautiful perfect reps (conventional dl) w/o using a mixed grip. Grip strength is my biggest issue I think.

I then proceeded to seated row 130x5 (which I've never managed to do with palms down grip; a month ago my three rep max was ~125lbs.

For some reason this week in the gym I've felt incredibly strong; I was dipping with 50lbs on a belt w/ ease; smashed my front squat PR (165x3) with 175x5, and tacked on 30 lbs to skull crushers (from 60-90lbs).

All my success I attribute to 3 things; one being chads hfs (which im on phase 2, not even the 2 a day part yet), a weekend of eating almost all carbs (not really too many food choices at home), and an odd hunger increase of late.

For the longest time I've had a lot of trouble with eating adequately. This
is why even though I've been lifting on 4 years now, I have only this past year had anything to show for it. Strangely though, in the past few months I've gone from ~2700 calories/day to nearly 4k without much weight gain.

Damn I'm pumped. "I'm the Juggernaut B**ch!" (follow this link if you don't get it, I thought it was hilarious http://www.yikers.com/video_im_the_juggernaut_bitch.html)

Thanks for the compliments. My goal now is to get 315 on the bar (prefferably without resorting to straps).

Wow Trogdor, how do you DL with just 1 big beefy arm? And far more importantly, where is your damned majesty?
