I hit 405 yesterday. My record before was 365, which was in January of this year. And to think the first time I ever deadlifted in my life was about this time last year, and I could barley handle 115 pounds for 3 sets of 5.

Now its off to the path of hitting 500.

Sweet - nice work. My PR is 365 a few weeks ago... maybe I'll hit 405 sooner than I thought.

I knew I would get it by summer, I was really surprised to get it that soon though. You'll get it just keep at it.

@HeavyBomber - Thanks

Good job man! Was it sumo or conventional?

Conventional, I've never even tried sumo.

I started to realize too, that at some point here I may want to invest into a belt, my back is still a little tight, and the last thing I want to do is mess up my lower back.

If everything goes right diet and training-wise, you could hit 500 within a year or so. Congrats on getting 405.

Holy ****!! Thats amazing progress from 115!

About a year ago I could barely pull 135, now I'm plateaued at 370ish. I've been dreaming of hitting 405 for a long time.

good stuff bro... I'm stuck at 470... lookin' for that magic 500. I remember when I pulled 405, I had to set it up with different plates... (the 4 plates per side was playing mind games with me) lol.

I still remember when I hit 315 and thought that was good. It was that same feeling times 10 when I was able to hit 505. Hope to break 515 by the end og the month. Congrats on hitting 405.

Nice work. I hit a PR too today. 315. Last friday I lifted with gloves and only got 295. Today all I added was a belt and got a little more fired up after doing a good squat.
