    The strongest deadlifter in Australia has a nice ring to it. Lots of work left, but you are a freight train on the move!

    Thanks Tom!! Yep Blues should have won game one.......better team! 10 point win is solid....game 3 26-16.

    Thanks Gazzy!! Its a long road but I am on that road and I know what to do..........up up up!

    Thanks B&T!! Pleased with it but to be honest my form was off which is not good enough.....more to do...can't wait.

    Thanks Kiff!! Just keen to sort out my form so I can pull a big PR.....soon.

    Thanks BC!! Yeah but I dont do much else ha ha............you no doubt remember I was bench only, squat always went up so long as I was squatting but my pull was BAD....I know you guys won't believe it but Eddie can tell you I used to find 315 hard sumo



    BW AM s 217.......very happy with that but I want to be 222-223 AM....thats the goal....start of last year I was only 206 AM from memory and Im leaner now.

    Thanks John!! Yeah a long way off but Im right in the thick of it.

    I have lots of room to pack on muscle @ 220.........maybe 12lb of muscle if I can get a little leaner so Im very positive I can move some real weight in due time.


    Thanks everyone for the "tip of the day".........turns this site into a massive source of quick tips/knowledge.

    Lower back was strained slightly again Monday so I have been doing everything I can to be able to lift heavy Tomorrow with Eddie.

    Band G.M's-
    6 sets of 20 slow

    Weighted abs-
    3 sets of 15 with 5 sec hold on last reps

    Side bends-
    24lb bell x 25 per side very slow

    Feeling pretty good now so I will pull heavy................thunder and steel!

    Was going to do band SLDL but that will kill my back so I will pull comp stance sumo against bands with a goal of 600+200 in bands (doubled greens), from 1.25" mats which makes getting into position a little easier so I can concentrate on pulling heavy rather than just on form.

    Will remember my camera.

    You are already an elite lifter, but seeing you get into the mid 220 range while being lean should make you consider bodybuilding competitions, just a thought, lol.

    Thanks Coke!! My body is a bad shape for bodybuilding and I am not being modest.....shit upper body....legs are ok.

    Elite @ 220 is 1875 total...........I could (with my elbow being sorted) hit that no doubt but I will need to do it in comp before I talk about it or else I am disrespecting the guys who have done all the travelling, time off work etc to do it in comp under real conditions.

    2375 is the long term goal..........900-675-800.

    You got me thinking bro...........got to fix this elbow and get my elite!

    Hope the back is in good order to go with the plan of 600+200 in bands. Thats an insane pull. Really is.

    2375 is the long term goal..........900-675-800.

    You got me thinking bro...........got to fix this elbow and get my elite!
    Thats a hell of a total. No doubt you are the man for the job. I hope you get the elbow sorted soon and get this under way.

    315+ bands x 1 VIDEO
    315+ bands x 2
    315+ bands x 2
    315+ bands x 1

    He then did raw squats to parallel box with perfect form (better than his pulling form which is rusty) with 365 for 3 singles and some dimel deadlifts which he loves with 225 x15 x 2 sets...........Eddie weighs 158 now due to lost size from a long lay off.

    Good back day man. And that's good about the trip however, it'll give me more time to prep and not be so flabby, haha.
