Thanks for the advice, looks like I'm lifting over my double body weight. 2.5 bodyweight looks a pretty heavy 385.

Using Proteus's calcs that weight is a very doable 329 pounds. I'll aim for that and see how I feel.

2,5 times bw max-out attempts are probably possible. However IMO doing max attempts always sacrefices proper form. Doing 2-3 reps in perfect form @ 2 x bw gives the same benefits @ reduced risk.

FRI: OUCH !

ran over some kid flew over over the bike landed on my shoulder ... cant move my arm :)  typing with 1 hand ...

fucking kid ... worst of all he got away unscathed - even his bike didn't break im so pissed - it was 100000% his fault but he waslike 6 years old so i didnt lecture him it would be a waste of time - he cut into my bike lane at 90 degrees without looking was nothing i could do - he could have ended up dead if he wasnt so lucky ...

basicly my front wheel hit his but he wuz doing 3 mph and i about 18

This weeks (tomorrow)

Deadlift only.

New PB everyweek (last week 291.5 pounds) me at 154 pounds I think. Aiming for 2.5 bodyweight is this a reasonable goal?

Ps I don't add the bar weight, is this the deal?

Add the bar weight.

I'm deadlifting over 3x bodyweight without a belt @ 155lbs, so its anything but impossible. I want 3.5xbw

How do you feel when moving or how you bodyworks compared to when you didn't deadlift with all the new extra muscle/strength in you hipflexors/back?

How did you get to such a huge weight? genetically gifted?

Well, everything feels a lot lighter. I was using a pickaxe the other day and was surprised that I could swing it pretty much as fast as any stick haha. Other than that, my jumping is a lot better, and I never really did any sprinting before but I feel like every time my lifts go up I get faster. Grip strength is much improved too.

I just lift like any powerlifter would, trying to hit bigger weights often as I can. Theres guys out there hitting over 4xBW deadlifts.

Sunday:

Ring Dips: 3x6 with 70lbs
Rope chin ups: 3x6 with 60lbs
 
too lethargic to squat today. Adrenals are killing me and I am fatigued due to the winter-summer shift. Weather shifted from the 30's and 40's to the 70's and 80's this week while also humid. I am sweating so much. Hopefully my adrenals will kick in and adapt soon. Anybody else feel like this with the winter-summer shift?

I'm no where near as strong as you yet I will hit 2.5 I think as I've only been doing them consistently since mid January and I get the feelings you mentioned..pretty cool that's why I want heavier, I'm addicted.  If you could point me to any good sites that would be cool.

How long have you been doing them?

You will get there man, just keep pushing and keep consistent and you will hit your goals. Me and KD are registered over at ironaddicts forums, its a pretty good site. I have been over there for years now, lots of good guys over there. I have been lifting since '08. Made a lot of bad choices, including hiring a 24hr fitness personal trainer and doing "bodybuilding" diets, etc. But if it wasn't for all of that, I probably wouldn't be here today looking on a total new page in health and wellness.

Best of luck to your goals man, let me know if you come over to the other forum, be cool to have another RP guy over there.
