Some recent lifts I'm happy with:

Competition style bench with 3s pause: 110kg x 1
Conventional deadlift: 220kg x 1
3s paused bench: 83kg x 8
Low bar good mornings: 95kg for 2 sets of 10, and boy did those kill my hammies in a way they've never been killed before lol.

Deadlifted 160 kg before I started my obsession with the clean and push press.
Clean and push pressed 70kg yesterday.

600lbs Hex Deadlift with a belt only. Had to tie some 5 and 2.5 to the bar because the collars were completely full and stretched a band around the plates to hold them on.

Hey Reed, not to creep you out (but since you can push press about what I deadlift you shouldn't be scared) do you go to the Rush Fitness 24/7 in TN?

I recognized the coloring of your gym...the blue, orange and green walls and the bright red plates. Then I saw you were from TN. Anyways, I go to the Rush up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee during school breaks and thought you might be in the area (since it's still not that big of a chain)

Props on alpha lifts, especially for the Rush.

Oh cool man your not to far just about a hour and half if that. Lol thanks but honestly the majority of my training is at much more hardcore hole in the wall gym but I don't see a point in driving 45 mins more than twice a week just so I can push press and bench. That's about all I do at the Rush except the past few weeks work and school has been crazy so I have made due.

Started training my friend so I did some high rep work because he only needed low weight.

Done in the same session. Rarely go above 5 reps so this was a little different.
6 months training at 160lbs

Front squat: 175x25
Bench: 135x20
Dead Lift: 220x20 (no belt, grip gave out)
Military Press: 90x20

Did you injure yourself horribly, and you are coming back to deadlifts slowly?

I injured myself about 8 years ago and haven't worked out or done any weight training or any execersie in a number of years I've been training for 4 months or so now give or take a couple weeks .

When I first started I couldn't deadlift or squat with a bar because it hurt my lower back back. I used the squat machine so i could squat now I'm using the bar for the last 3-4 weeks.

I've only done deadlifts for 3-4 weeks taking very slow, making sure my forms right which it almost is I just need to use more legs more i think thats why im getting a little back tightness now and a little pain.

I didn't have lower back pain during but the day after any heavy movement (dead, squat, OHP) my lower back would be tight and sore until I started doing just BW glute bridges everyday with I think they're called birddogs?

Oh, okay. You should post the form of your lifts here (either in the powerlifting, or beginner's forums) so we can see what your form looks like, and help you.
