    Good job. Now you gotta lift the big 6 plates a side! (585)
    Or better yet, 600 pounds. While 500 is really great and impressive, 600 looks so much better and impressive, yet not that far from 500.

    I have a question: did you use straps?

    I don't think there is any shame in using straps... Although people here will disagree with me.

    If you pull 500 pounds, you can pull 500 pounds... it's that simple.

    All the straps do is relieve the tension on the grip...

    That's my opinion, anyways...

    GREAT LIFT...

    I just got 400 a couple weeks ago at 175... I'm hoping to catch up to you soon

    If you can lift 455 for a multiple rep set without straps, you will have no problem doing 500 for one with no straps in a few weeks of grip work. I'm tired of pitching chalk, but you could probably pull 500 strapless if you had chalk.


    BTW, great job. Lets get some pics, because I obviously dont believe your wild internet-based claims.
