700lb Deadlift Training Max w/video
So I am super excited. This week I squatted 605 and pulled 700 for the first time in about 6 years. These numbers aren't PR's, they aren't super impressive but for me it's a huge moral victory. I have been battling back and this time I decided to take it slow and steady. I will continue on that path and train smart and safe. I pulled this today without pulling over 500lbs off the floor in the last 10 weeks, so I was very happy with how it felt.
A long time ago George Halbert told me: "Powerlifting is a Marathon, not a sprint." I was too young to take that in, but it's been almost 10 years since I last competed in a meet and I now understand the full gravity of that statement.
I am really looking forward to the next training cycle,
