    I got back in the club last night, but am still 25 pounds off of my best pull. :doh: I'd like to hit 500 this year.

    DL Night worked well for you, too? :)


    I pulled 425 last night. I bought a couple of new plates earlier in the day in pre-celebration of the events.

    I'd also love to see 500. I'm just looking for 450 sometime this summer. I really need to get back to squating heavy again as that's where I really suck. Now that the knee is getting a bit better I may work on that.

    Now I know why you asked that George...:o
    It didn't really register until today.

    I did the speed pulls as my deadlift workout. :doh:
    Now that I learned from my mistake, I'll probably put them at the end of leg day. (Friday)

    I did a LOT of warmup sets and choked at 335. :cry: I guess I was out of steam, since 3 x 315 went up with no problem. Dropped to 285 and did 3x10 because I was so pissed off.

    It's really up to you. I think the spirit of this thread is that a group of people are working towards the same goal. It's not so much a bragging rights thing as a form of support for one another. Of course, a little rivalry is always good for progress. :)
