Temperature PR today deadlifting in garage with no insulation or heat, about 20 degrees, less outside because of windchill. I'm sure someone has probably beat that though.

Well, it's about -15 here right now outside and don't think I'd be lifting there.

I like them starting from low pins, like an Anderson squat. I usually set the pins to where I can barely get my knees under the bar and and work up to a heavy single after dead lifts. I've seen your 455 Zercher video, that was beastly. My best ever from low pins is 385.

I'm struggling back into heavy Zercher World. Had tight hips, pulled groin and hamstring, and a sprained knee this past winter.

I think doing a heavy Z squat right before I nailed a deadlift PR a few years ago helped me by activating the quads.

Best ever by 10 pounds. 405 for a single was all I could get 2 months ago when I first tried to go heavier like this. Today I got 6 with 405, 2 with 455 and this is the second of 2 475 singles. All after warmups. 1x255 for 15 and 1x315 for 12. I refuse to die before I can pull 500 for 1. I'm hoping in a few more weeks. That may not impress everybody but it's a lot for me and I worked hard for it.

When I started back 8 years go after the Lord delivered me from bondage to alcohol (again), I had a huge beer belly, double chin, was outta breath walking across the house and 2 sets of body weight squats had me so sore, I literally could barely move.

Very good for you too man!!


500 pounds!!!
Skipped the lighter warmup set after the bike for a few minutes and a light machine set and went from 315 for 12 straight to 500. I was actually goin for 495, but my man in the bright orange shoes stuck the other 2.5's on there when I wasn't lookin and he wasn't takin no for an answer. He was right. This is the second of 2 500 pound singles.

Thanks btw guys. I've been sooper busy and Fletch, I've been meaning to try to get a hold of you.

Have taken quite a break from training for the last few months due to working out of town. Could only manage one or two lifting sessions every other week or so, if that.

So while not a PR I did get a 545 sumo deadlift (my weaker position vs conventional) tonight followed by several doubles and triples at 495.

I did also get 5 x 5 x 518 with the trap bar last week.

It's tough getting back into the swing of things in terms of heavy, grueling workouts.

Pretty poor really. Maxed out at 105kg on the squat the other day. Bench is similar (last session for 8x2x90kg).

Max squat ever 140kg.
