Went back a bunch of pages and couldn't find the old thread, so who's in?
I'm at close to 585 now. I was so close to 600 two years ago and got whacked by health problems. Gall bladder attacks, now removed and can eat again, yay!, shingles, and then the worst back injury I had in 25 years was my 6/08-12/08 story.
I tried two times in March and May but was a little shy. In January 08 I did 570, but got greedy and tried 600 instead of hitting 585 in March. and May. I think if I did the 6 plates I would have had a better shot mentally. At that time I had done a365-370 against the doubled mini bands, my main deadlift staple.
Four weeks ago I missed 585 close. I always miss low, if it goes 6 " it goes up. I got it about 4". My current bodyweight is 202. When I hit 585 in two weeks, I might weigh my plates to be a dick. Most weigh heavy, so I might get ac heap pr, hahaha!
I'm going for 585 the day after my 47th birthday btw, weight is right around 200 ish. I slide up 5 and go back down, staying close to the 198 lb class limit.
