    5x5 Pullups

    I guess this counts as a PR. I have never tried it as usually it is hard for me to do 6 in a set.

    But I tried it yesterday (as that was what my BGB routine called for) and I did it. (Unweighted, so I'm still a sissy).

    MANY people, including me, cannot do 5x5 pullups unweighted, hell i can barely do 1x5.

    Completed two 85 pound dumbells for three reps.

    Some might not think thats amazing but it is considering I'm in a 1700 (per day) caloric defecit and have been doing a PSMF for 5 straight days.

    -jordan

    BTW the most bench I've EVER done was two 85 pound dumbells 4 times.

    I got 265 5x5 on my bench on monday

    Yesterday I got 245 5x5 ATF squats and 405 x3 deadlifts ....but I had to use straps :-(
    Bench - 315*1 Goal 325
    Squat - 275*4 ATF Est 1RM = 300 Goal 310
    Deadlift - 405 x3 Est 1RM = 429 Goal 455

    I just started doing real squats and deadlifts about a month ago so hopefully these will grow quickly.

    Strongmans gotta be one of the most physically taxing things out there, props on taht. Strong lifts especially for not training for them.

    Thanks for the encouragement

    But I am probably much lighter---i weigh like 150 in the morning and 156 or so during the day. But considering that two or three weeks ago I was only hitting 144 I consider it an accomplishment.

    Thanks!

    Deadlift 335 lbs x 2. I know I can pull 385lbs for 1 with just a bit more confidence.
