I pulled a PR today @315. I’m pretty proud of myself considering the most I’ve ever lifted is 275, and I assumed my max would be at 300 or 305.
I did get a little scared when I was pulling 285 for my first single and near the top of the lift I kinda lost awareness of my surroundings. It felt awesome experiencing just me and the bar and nothing else, but I was kinda worried afterwards that I might have been close to a blackout. I couldn’t see or hear anything. After going down, I was slightly light headed, but I’ve had that happen before (it’s just due to drops in blood pressure, right?) and I wasn’t too concerned. It happened again on my next lift but neither of the last two.
It could be something as simple as I closed my eyes and was concentrating really hard, but I’m not really sure since I was working out alone today. Has anybody else had this happen to them??
