Did not know where to put this since I did not vid;)


Big night for me tonight.   I has been 2+ years since I have lifted 'heavy'.   I brought deads back in at the start of the year, but have been hesitant to push too had too fast.   Today, after 495 felt so good, I decided to commit and slapped another 45 on each side.   It has been well over 2 years since I last pulled 6 plates.

I will admit I was a bit nervous.   It is a pretty big leap for me to jump up to.   I did not want to look stupid either (like I was ego lifting).  But I needed to push myself a little or I would never make the leap.  I took the last few weeks off deadlifting and was beginning to feel I was avoiding going heavier than 495.  Nothing like the present to just decide that you are going to do something.

I am not usually the one to care what others think.  (Hence my  light training I have been doing for some time is FAR from an ego boost which is fine with me)  But quite a few guys in the gym know I "have more in the tank" then I have let on by what I lift the last few years.   They bust my chops about it at times.  Good dudes and all in fun.    It however starts to draw attention when you are putting plates on the bar.   It is the reality of lifting in a crowded gym.   I think anything you take pride, one naturally wants to do their best.  Whether I wanted it or not, I had people looking over at what I was doing.

I put a belt on for the lift.  (I dont use a belt unless I go over 5 plates)  That was a little weird and I forgot how uncomfortable my belt is.

I set up for my pull and could not find my breath rhythm to commit to pull.   I had several cycles of breath that were just off and it was not feeling right.  Then my heart rate settled and I felt the first good breath and I knew my set up was close.  Two more breaths and I locked in and pulled.   I was almost not ready, but it was automatic.   Slow off the ground as usual, and from mid shin, I accelerated so hard that that lockout at the top initiated a good bounce of the weight.    I lowered nice and slow and in control.   The let off at the bottom, caused immediate stars.    I gave myself 3 or 4 good breaths and decided to pull again.   Same thing.....broke mid shin and accelerated to a lockout.

I only planned on just doing one, but after I did it, I did not want to feel like I was just barely getting it....so I pulled another.   Pretty sure I could have pulled one more....or even two.   But the feeling of abdominal pressure against the belt was not one I have felt in some time.   I erred on the side of caution and know I need to still condition my core to heavy lifting.

All in all....it has been some time since I have felt compelled to write about a workout.   I feel good.   It was a fun day.   I have resolved that this may not be a PR by a long shot.   But I can still enjoy it.   Feels good.

I have mixed feelings about geared lifting.  It's not for me, but the guys that ruin it for everyone are the ones you see at every meet, they act like total dicks, squat and bench a ton, but when it comes to the deadlift all of a sudden they are weak as a cat.  Just a coincidence that the deadlift is where you get the least help?

Not heavy, but fun.  Everything was 200 lbs except the fire hydrant was an "estimated" 240 lbs.  54" platform, so pretty much over my head.

It was a very loose shirt, set up for someone that's taller and heavier than I.  Gave me an idea of Power, and what can be done.  The Denim Inzer shirt that I have, I'll upgrade later one.  It works for the Moment, just have to learn it.
