RDL's 3 x 6 x 475
(that's a 40 lbs bar)
Trap Bar Dead 1 RM of 570 tonight. Belted. Barefoot. Metal Church on stereo.
Kroc rows 3 x 7 x 224
Shucks, fellers and gals, this wasn't meant to be my personal blog. Jump in here.
Got a 570 raw conventional deadlift last night. Only a 5 lbs increase. I'm pissed I didn't just slap on six plates and get a 585 because the 570 was so stinkin' easy it felt smooth as silk.
Did a 545 on the way up and again on the way down before concluding with two doubles at 515.
Feels good doing this just two days short of birthday #51. Still getting stronger and plan on continuing to do for the foreseeable future.

Just got this tonight, after three months of focusing on this pretty much-forgotten lift.
And before I get any grief for the music, it's kinda a goof/shout out to my buddy. ;)

whoa. there's some crazy heavy lifting going on in here.
I realize it's a warmup weight for you guys but I pulled 365 last night, conventional, chalk, alternating grip, after I hit 285x8.
I'm hoping to pull 405 without a belt before I start dieting down in April. it feels GOOD to pull injury-free with much better technique and to move weight I couldn't have touched a year ago!
RDLs 3 x 5 x 480
I pulled 280x9 on my 5's week of 531 deadlift and decided to chase a new PR.
I pulled 375 stronger than I pulled 365 two weeks ago, chalk, double overhand hook grip, no belt. I was gonna try 385 but I ran out of time (had to meet gf for lunch).
405 ohhhh sooo close!

565 x 4.
This was from today...PR for reps
Kroc rows 3 x 12 x 208
Thought I'd throw this up. This is an all-time PR. Hoping to hit 605 x 4-5 as a short term goal.

Pulled 600 today for my first time. I haven't missed a deadlift rep in almost 6 months and I'd like to keep it that way. I had no doubts about this one today, but I knew it would be tough.

635 x 1, 675 x1 SSB safe squat.
It's only marginal because it's a safe squat. :) I don't believe in them, but they're keeping my shoulders pain free and also giving me some needed variety to get excited about.
455 squat and 610 deadlift at my meet last Saturday (benching felt terribly off) at 196.75 lb BW.
Finally got a 345 flat footed bench, and 300 front squat.
Great work Ashy! Front squats are looking good and smooth
