You wrote 120x9. I wasn't sure if you meant 120 lbs each hand or 120 lbs combined (two 60s).

375lb deadlift x5 11/10/10

(or 10/11/10 .. October... crazy Americans with your broken dates :) )

I did it the week before but the 5th was after a 45 second rest so I decided to try again without the excessive pause, before I put the "I did it" stamp on it.

Next goal is a 330lb low squat but think it will take a bit.

Barbell Military Press = 3 sets x 205 lbs for 5 reps (10/13/10)

Not a 1RM, but still pretty cool.

Nice

One of my main satisfying exercises is the OHP and I pretty much base my entire strength on what it is at - even though there are bigger lifts.

Currently at 140 5x5 but only got 4x5 this week for some reason :(

10/18/10

Conventional Deadlift - 1 x 335, with a belt, bodyweight about 190. Pronated grip.

A 40-pound PR and my first 1.75x bodyweight lift. Getting closer to 2x.

Oh Oh, excited about this:

2x15 Pullups
1x13 Pullups

I've never done more than 12 consecutive pullups, I've been doing 2x/day traiing and it seems to be working :P

Back Squat 245 pounds. Previous PR, 220. Had to tell someone. Not many people understand how it feels to get a 25 pound PR in a lift you've been doing for a long time.

Nice. That is a big improvement.

DB Flat Bench

3x8 120s

I've never been able to get them for 3 sets of 8, usually goes 8, 7, 6 or so - today it went up a total of 3 reps over 3 sets! Huge improvement.

Also, I do two-a-days, if I'm able to get 3x8 120s again tonight then I'll be back here to edit this post!

Edit: I get 7, 7, 7 tonight - still an improvement - the most reps i've got in a day was 42 - with 3x8 and 3x7 that gives me 45 total reps in one day over 6 sets.

Convensional Deadlift = 485 lbs for 1 rep

Felt surprisingly easy. I'm looking foreward to trying 495 lbs.
