    I spent the weekend fly fishing in cold weather. I camped and didn't sleep that well. I figured I be tired this morning and actually thought about not going to the gym. Glad I decided to go.

    I did banded squats up to 455. I played with the bands and weights on top to hold them down and I'm getting about 100 pounds of resistance at the top. After doing those, I felt so good, I tried non-banded and heavy. 620 X 1. Yahoo!

    500 x 1 Rack Pull....I know it isn't a classical lift, but I thought it was pretty cool seeing as it was my first 500lb. lift with anything, lol.

    PRs are PRs, unlike the other thread (which is in the BB forum and kind of confusing) any PRs are good here as long as its lifting wise.


    Rack pull from bottom of knee cap:

    655x1

    Great job. Like Reko said, a PR is a PR.
