T Nation

PR Thread?

I saw one in t-cell and I don’t think we have one here, and it’s a good idea IMO.

Today I hit 175x8 on incline bench, which is weak but a huge improvement for me.

And last week I hit 455 for almost two reps on deadlifts.

Fuck me if this thread already exists though!

What PRs have you guys hit lately?

Aren’t you the guy who stuck a plunger up his ass when he was 15?

PR thread already going in the strength forum

Arent plungers usually wooden handles ?

Wouldn’t you get splinters ???

hmmm… well perhaps this can be a PR thread more pertaining to bodybuilding, such as making PR’s in the “hypertrophy rep range”. I know the dogma of this site is whenever one uses such classifications to shoot them down, but let’s be real, setting PR’s in the weight you can lift in the 5-12 rep range is the most important aspect of bodybuilding and is important, no critical, to putting on lean body mass as fast as possible.

That’s not that hard of a task to accomplish.

i have no PRs worth bragging about.

i hit 365x5 touch and go on the DL if thats worth anything.

speaking of DL’s i feel like i can get a better pull if i put my hands very close and inside but then one side starts weeble-wobbling and i balance it out but any tips on getting a cleaner pull?

You’re just jealous because he did it before you.

Just kidding, you’re right though.

So you’re saying it doesn’t take years of consistent hard work in the gym, along with a solid diet, to bring ones back squat up from 250x6 to 500x6.

I think he was talking about your post being the best one in this thread.

As far as a new rep PR is concerned, 335 X 6 non-touch and go elevated snatch-grip deadlifts today (that was a mouthful.)

If it’s a PR it’s worth bragging about because it means you are making progress.

For deads I like to keep my feet a little narrower than shoulder width with my hands right outside of them - for me this gives me the most comfortable and strongest pull.

i hit 205 for 6 reps on front squats the other day

I deadlifted 225 x 24 in about 4 minutes. Not great but I was targeting my upper body doing double over hand grip and no straps. I might try it with straps and go for 300 x 24 in 4 minutes.

Also, doing the same thing with pullups I got 30 reps in 3 minutes.

No I agree with you on that. I was talking about it not being hard to submit the best post in this thread.

ah, yes, true, nothing of value was stated before me. Well in a couple of weeks i’ll have rotated to my first exercises again and should hopefully have PR’s to post.

I got 405x5 touch and go deadlift tonight. no gloves, no straps.

365x8 today

i was sooooo close to gettin x9 but on the 9th rep after i lifted it and brought it to the knee area i felt a lot of weight on my toes and was like shit, im gonna fall over so i kept at it a little longer trying to lock it then said fuck it and dropped it.

so basically i got a 3.5 rep increase from last week which is pretty god damn good if you ask me. especially for the DL.

i have to accredit music for helping me though. i usually never listen to music at the gym but today i brought some and was blasting Dig by Mudvayne. this chill comes over me and idk i get into this deep dark angry place. it feels really good though.
