getting heavy
« on: October 28, 2011, 10:27:50 pm »
I'm pretty happy, I knocked out a 500lb deadlift tonight.  Still trying to get my squat into the 500's, but that will probably be a couple of months away.

Congrats man! When I was in good shape, 500 to 600 was my comfortable area with deadlifts, but my squats were wimpy. I never broke 325 because I had terrible form. Good luck going through the 500's

nice man, I'd love to hit 600, its gonna be a while for that though...

yea, my deads have always sucked, never more than about 20lbs higher than my squats.  I've been dieting the past month though and my squats have gone no where... no idea why I felt strong tonight doing deadlifts, but I'll take it :)

My squats at 455 right now, well about 6 weeks ago, haven't tried maxing since then.  I was wanting a 500 squat by the end of this year, but I'm not sure I can get there that fast...

I love the snatch and jerk.

Yeah, I wanna say I maxed out at 615 on deadlifts because I had the strength, but only 325 on squats because of my form. I always felt like the weight was light enough, but I would feel like I was falling over. Eat some steak and potatoes and you'll bulk up your squats.

Infantry needs to work on tightening up his snatch and cleaning up his jerk a bit :)

I can snatch a bag of potatoes in one hand and a cast iron skillet in the other.  Does that count?  :wink:
