    I think if 665 is easy, you should just try 700. I know you don't pull heavy off the floor all that often, but I think you can get that.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Interesting I might try some of this stuff. BTW what are "chuck rows"? I'm surprised I have never heard of this.

    Good deal on that, like the pic. Very nice with the deads and side bends.

    Definitely looked strong bro, nice deficit work!! Sounds like you have timed the deload right. Rest up.

    Side note: You are in Sydney right? The IPF oceanias are there (7-9 December), if I manage to make it you would have to come watch mate!

    Thanks a lot everyone!!!!!

    Your right April, weak hams and bad form meant I hurried the lift and straightened legs to fast.

    Easy to fix.

    And Hayden I'll be there, may even pick you up from the Airport and stuff!
