    245lbsx1
    275lbsx1
    295lbsx1-add belt

    -drop set, keep belt-
    275lbsx1

    Nice PR man, but you should have gotten greedy and gone for the 3 plates. Keep up the good work man!

    The cool thing about deads that I noticed seems to be a common trend is that once you hit 3 plates, it's a quick progression up to 4...but then things tend to slow down from there. I see a 4 plate dead in the not so distant future! Keep it up!

    Sorry to hear that you are sick. I know what you are going through but just try your best to eat something and rehydrate. Hope you feel better.

    well im sore as hell right now. My uncle showed me a new exercise called the champaigne lift. Its a cross between DB bench and an extension. Really hit my triceps nicely. I felt really loose at the bottom of my 210 attempt. I think its because of week lats and just weakness overall.

    I know i said i was going to go 5/3/1 but my uncle it turns out will be living with us for a while and westside is his routine of choice. I have a workout partner now so i said i will go back to westside so we can lift together. I feel like i know how to make westside work better for me now also. I need more tricep work outside of benching and DB benching. Im going to start doing more extensions, pull downs and dips to absolutely blast my triceps.
