Today was a good day!

First I did sumo style deads as follows:

135 x 8
225 x 8
315 x 6
405 x 1
525 x 1
575 x 3---This was relatively easy and I stopped short.

I have only be back to deadlifting for 4 sessions. I believe this was the 5th. I had taken about 6 weeks off and had previously been deadlifting standard style for a long time.

I then decided to do some stiff-legged deads for the camera. No belt, but I did use straps as I was going for high reps.

405 x 14---Ohhh yeaaahhhh! I had more in me as well as you will see in the video.

Lol, I just decided to go about as RAW as possible. I train barefoot all of the time now. I kind of like it. Squatting was a bit odd at first, but I have the hang of it now.

won't let me see it because it says my ip has downloaded it too much or some rubbish like that.

You should use the WBB account, I did teach you how to use it ;)

i feel so much more comfortable with a sumo stance in which my arms are inside my legs, then the normal stance where my arms were outside of my legs.

Nice chris, it's always inspiring to see your lifts.

As of now not all that heavy. My heaviest set is with 405 but I perform that totally RAW and go deep.

Now, this may sound like a plug but it is the real deal. I am hardly sore at all and that is because I use ETS. I have done stiffs twice in the last several months so I should be sore as ****. ETS works and works well!

i read somewhere hes pulled 675 before not sure if its his max or not or if he wore straps.

chris mason

My best pull to date is 625 lbs with no belt and a hook grip with no straps.

I am good for more than that right now as I just pulled an easy 605 x 2.

285 kilos with a hook grip ??not only are you very very strong but you seem to have a high tolerence to pain .anyone who has deadlifted or pulled 230 kilos or more with a hook can tell that,it's so painful on the thumbs .WELL DONE AGAIN :bow:

Lol, I do, and it does hurt like a bitch!

You know Brad Gillingham pulls in the low to mid 800s with a hook grip! I will get into the 700s before I am done.

My PC is Archaic so i am still waiting. I also Noticed Harvs back and about puked.
Impressive.
Chris I also noticed that with heavy high rep work like with Deads or Rows that the normal next day Doms are short lived. Gotta hand it to you. It's a great product.

Now you need a weightgainer. <hint>

Damn man, I never knew you were so freaking strong. Youre a monster, btw I second the whole waxing thing.

chris mason

Yeah, I am a hairy kinda guy, not much to be done there. I would (and have) shaved for a bodybuilding contest but that is about it. Shaving is such a pain in the ass!

Hatred: We have a weight gainer formula designed and have tested it. It would be the best weight gainer (I am not being boastful here, it would be the best) on the market but would not be cheap. In fact, if I remember right we would be looking at somewhere in the high $50 range for 6 lbs or so. We haven't released the product because of concerns over pricing. We are strictly an online entity and we are not sure the online market would support a pricey weight gainer no matter how good it is.

Chris do you have any of your BBing pics, i would love to see some of those.

that weight gainer sounds bad ass btw i for one am about quality, price is of little concern when it comes to how good the product performs. Sad to say i am one fo the few who feel this way, and would love to try some of your weight gainer.

The last time I competed was when I was 19! I do have one shot from then that I posted some time ago.

In terms of me in my hairy, fat, pale off-seasonish type of self doing some of the mandatories I have posted them here in the past.

Damn Chris, you made that look easy.

But dude, why workout barefoot? :D

I have been deadlifting barefoot/sock feet lately

1) it gets you closer to the floor
2) it avoids the instability and other problems with most stupid x-trainer shoes, given that I don't wear chucks or PL shoes to the gym



Oh and nice work Chris.
The ROM on your first rep looked a little short though.... :ducks:
