I'll be working up to 315. That's like around 2.3x bodyweight for me.

Knee is finally ready for some heavy lifting.

Allen,

Shaf is working on a 600# dead. This is right in his wheelhouse.

luckily my gym has bumper plates to use for this... dropping 315# of iron for 30 minutes may not be acceptable.

I plan on doing this again to try to hit last years record of 113.

I did sets of 5 on the minute for 20 minutes. This was unsustainable for much longer than this. My HR would reach ~175-185 about 15s after I put the bar down.

Then I just went as I could.

Sets of 3 are smooth. There isn't nearly the ramp up on the heart rate. PL54 on IGx noted this as well.

Grip was fine, I did chalk up though every so often. I didn't wear a belt.

The DOMS from this lasted about 5 days.

nice work man... I was thinking about 5 per minute for as long as I can... I can imagine how this will make me feel.

triples, gonna do that next workout. No way I'm going to get much past 60, unless, it is one of those days.
