The meet is 3 weeks out and I just had my last heavy deadlift session (I think lol).
The big guy Mike said im going to warm up like on comp day. The thing is... all the competition weights were in kilos so I really don't know how much weight is on the bar without actually counting lol. I did my warmups and he said "Go for a walk, rest before your next lift". So I come back do my 400lb deadlift easy. He says "Go for another walk". So I go for another walk come back and deadlift heavier, 435. A little hitch but nothing bad. He says again "Ok your doing that again go for a walk". I come back... deadlift it and was JUST shy of a lockout. One of the strongmen who happened to be working out there said he was surprised I didn't lock it out, it was well above the knees. They decided to put 445 on the bar when I was gone which would have been a 20lb PR from... 3 weeks before. I was very close... I think the fact that I farted during the lift almost scared the **** out of me, literally.
I still cannot get over working out with these guys. I am now benching my one rep max for 3-4 reps only after 2 months. I can safely say im hooked.
