I would get a video of me deadlifting, but I didn't deadlift today, only on Wednesdays.

Everything looks good to me.

Are your PR's in your sig old? You seem to be good for a lot more than those.

Yeah, I haven't tested for a max in a while, so they are pretty old. The weight is old too. I'm about 10 pounds heavier now. I'll check my weight tomorrow morning and change that.

It might just be the angle, but it looks like you were a tad shallow on the 265 squats. It looks like you hit depth on 315, though.

You doing Starr's 5x5?

If I was, it was probably because it was relatively easy and I kind of just rushed through the set without thinking about hitting proper depth.

Yup, on Week 5 of the routine now.

I thought u looked about 1" high on the 265 and 1/2" high on the 315 IMO. Good strength either way, bench looked great, nice arch!
