Nice lift!

I would say that’s big, especially without the belt or wraps.

How’d it go up? Did you feel like you might have been able to get a few more pounds up?

Nothing to sneeze at when you’re 185lbs. Good job.

I don’t understand this wrapping the knees while not wearing a suit. Why wrap but not suit up?

If you buy me a suit i’ll wear it.
Yes i could get some extra pounds for the lifting part for sure, but walking with that much on my back was really hard.

To support one’s knees under heavy weight. I squat heavy with a belt and knee wraps. Keeps my knees from being sore the next day.
