Tested tonight.



That lift is the culmination of every session in the last 4 years, that number has been my goal since I realised this is what I wanted to do. I doubted I'd ever lift it at times, now it feels like a stepping stone.

I also now have the same raw squat as raw deadlift. Imbalances FTW!

I'm sickly jealous and very proud. I still remember you as the *generic insulting term* squatting 160kg in cons in TF. Well done!!

Strong!

I have a side question out of curiosity. Does anyone powerlift that doesn't listen to heavy metal? It seems to be a requirement. Hedley listening to 5ive aside.

Fair play, great squatting!
That's also a pretty ****ing intense video. Your yelp is right on cue with the music breaking down to the guitar riff

A lot of the time I listen to Off the ball on newstalk but for heavy sets I tend to go with some kind of heavy music but it doesn't have to be metal. Nothing sucks the intensity out of the air like a **** song.

I don't actually like getting too hyped up before a set, unless its a big PR attempt I won't bother. You can over train that too and then it becomes hard to get a bit of a boost for the big lifts.

Laughing uses up quite a lot of oxygen apparently. I actually nearly blacked out after it. Would have been epic if I did actually.

Have you decided what meet your 'comeback' is going to be?

Seems like there'll be a few of us doing the IPO's.

Awesome! You look lean. Thought you were gonna fall backwards through the garage door half way up. Nice lol outta ya.

Inspirational after your injury. Well done! What a lift!
