I am so incredibly stoked, I wish I had a video, aargh.

Prior to comencing Oly training 8 or so weeks ago the most weight I ever handled raw was 170/374. I felt like deading and hit a 200/440 raw a few weeks ago.

I did an early training and somehow pulled 462. Its was hard as hell but my grip was not the limiting factor at all!!! I dont get were this new grip strength has come from. Imma try some rack pulls and see what i can really hold.

Excerpt from my journal...

Deadlifting in a cold gym at 6am... how hardcore.

Blah blah
210/462x1 (100% RAW)

add straps now... grip was busted after that.


Sumo deadlifts
140x3/3/3/5 screaming the weight up.


Sorry for the no video, I was having enough trouble walking straight at 6am let alone grabbing my cam. but I have my 485 belted and straps to prove I can move the weight.

..oh, and my form was perfect.

Damn, fuzz. Nice work. You are a big ass 14 year old so I'm not surprised you can move that kind of weight. BTW, that oly stuff will really improve your grip so I'm not surprised you had no trouble holding onto that.

Well, since power cleans challenge my grip more than anything else, I bet that's where the grip strength came from. Nice pull, BTW.

Fuzzy, that lift really rips! When are you going to do some comps?

Powerlifting? God knows, I might enter in one or two, well see.

Oly lifting, June 30.

Very nice lift Fuzzy! My only consolation is the fact that you weigh 30lbs more than me! We'll just ignore the fact that you're 14... It's easy to pretend you're 30 :p

Just had to say grats when I saw this thread. You'll be hitting that 500 in no time!
