I hit a new PR 368 :) I normally don't brag about PRs but I feel that going from 315 to 368 and just missing 375 was agreat deal. On top of a headache.

Congrats Nik!!

but howd you mange to get 368 on the bar??probably it was 365 (bar + 3pps + 25) + the collars... collars range from 1 lb to about 5 lbs each.. so Nik's maybe weight 1.5 lbs a piece..

We have weird weights, don't have the types of plates I had on but it was 368.

Our clamps are the big heavy kind at 5 LBs

We have no 45s we have 44s (don't ask)
We have no 10s we have 11s
We have no 25s we was 22s
We have no 5s we have 5 1/2
We have no 35 we have 33

Our weights are werid. But O well.

44 lbs = 20kg
33 lbs = 15kg
22 lbs = 10 kg
11 lbs = 5 kg
5.5 lbs = 2.5 kg

Yes, your right. Our weights are european made, meaning KG however for laziness we've had them marked in LBs. I think if anything it might be easier to lift in KG and then do the covnerison.

It was probably actually 369 lbs, then, if you include the decimals. 1 kg = 2.2046 lbs.

(20kg = 44.092 lbs) x 6 plates + bar = 308.644 lbs

(10kg = 22.046 lbs) x 2 plates = 44.092 lbs

(2.5kg = 5.5115 lbs) x 2 plates = 11.023

Subtotal = 363.759 = 5 lbs clamps = 368.759 (closer to 369)

So yeah. You lifted more than you thought. Nice job.
