    Is this a legit PR or not?

    Tonight was "DLT" (dead lift thursday).

    Normally, this is my dead lift profile:
    135 x 8
    185 x 8
    225 x 6
    275 x 6
    315 x 6 <-- I've only pulled 315 two or three times for six reps.


    Tonight:
    135 x 8
    185 x 8
    225 x 4
    275 x 4
    315 x 4
    335 x 6


    So is that 335 x 6 a legit PR, or is that just me conserving energy before hand?

    Sweet.

    I'm supposed to be cutting, but I just *had* to give myself a little extra bit of nutrition tonight post-workout.
    If my body's gonna give me a PR, it's pretty hard to say no to an extra bit of chicken salad.

    Nice work. 6RM's on deadlifts are tough.

    You can bet that the thought has crossed my mind.

    Great job Bosch. It's kind of funny, but I am going for 335x6 today (HCT12). I'm not cutting though. I think I will use your ramp set numbers as well - looks good. I did hit 330x6-2-2-2 last week so only jumping 5lbs.

    I now have some internet competition - lol.

    If you pulled 330 x 6 -2 -2 -2, then you're already ahead of me, because there's NO WAY I had any +2's left in me.
    Mine was just a straight set.
