lol, I don't have a journal on here, and I don't usually brag but I am teh happeh.
Ever since those posts about a DL rep contest several weeks back, I have been deadlifting again. It took me longer than I had hoped, but I finally pulled 365 for one rep yesterday.
Well, I wont be happy if I can't get it for atleast 2 next week. I'm on my way.
Ill be there soon! I just started deadlifting about 5 weeks ago and just did 300x3 two days ago. Its amazing how quickly you can up the weight on deadlifts once you get the form down.
Squat-will know soon
yeah, I did 300 x 7 yesterday. The week before, I think I only got it for 4 reps.
I've been doing squats after deadlifts. I could be wrong, but I figure that not only does it do it's own thing, but it also helps my DLs get stronger because the muscles in common are pre-exhausted from DLs when I do squats.
nice work bro

365 , man I can only hope. Mine's at 255 and I was elated about that

Nice, man. Now 405 should be your next goal.
congrats on 365 man. once you are able to do that for reps you should be close to the next goal of 405. i have been finishing my last set with 365, and two weeks ago, i got 405 for one rep. it wasnt a clean rep because i got stuck and had to struggle to lock out, but hey its the best i've done so i wasn't too upset.
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
Nice job, zen. 405 here you come.
D 435 / S 340 / B 305

You're blazing white hot,anyone ever tell you that? Sometimes i think you have fingers faster then Superman when it comes to posts on WBB forums.
Hot in terms of both speed and... well new hotness- Stash
wow! Thanx everyone.
I was patting myself on the back and had no idea you all would be so supportive.
Yes, 405 is the next goal. Seeing 4 of those big plates on each side come off the ground will be a beautious thing.
For now though, to get there, I will focus on getting more reps at 315 and 365 (and then 385).
Must improve each time out. If I don't get atleast 2 reps on the 365 this next time, I'm going to paint my face and call myself nancy.
yeah mate, cause they use lbs in the states.
so 45lb bar+ 45x8 plates=405
20kg bar + 20x8= 180kg/396lbs
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
I get to deadlift today!
Congrats on your PR.
Forever Goal: Strength
Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
good work. Im gonna go for 335 next workout....I WANT IT
Geez and I'm thinking I'm going to fail at my 225 dl goal for 2/27.
Seriously congratulations though, that's a very respectable weight!
Post when you get that 405 up!!!!!Good job keep working
Grats man! 365 is a lotta weight.
Best lifts: 615/475/660, Raw w/ Wraps
I'm so pumped right now, still, a few hours later!
I pulled 365 for 3 reps today!
So, I put 385 on and got it for 1 rep.
I took a vid with my digital camera of the 3 reps at 365. I'll upload it later (I have to sign up on putfile or youtube er somewhere). It seems like my form really sux.
Since this is only my 6th time doing them since I started doing deadlifts again, I think I need some pointers.
I'm not sure how long it's going to take youtube to do it's thing and make the vid available.
Anyway, I'd like some critique/advice on my form.
From what I can see, it seems like I start ok, using legs, then back, but then it seems like I am not finishing at the end correctly by locking out my legs and pulling the weight back with my upper body at the same time. It seems odd, but to me, it's almost like the first 75% of the lift is okay, but then I screw up the finish.
