Good job! How long have you been DLing, and where (weight-wise) did you start? How old are you?

(Yeah, yeah, I know. We shouldn't compare ourselves with anyone but ourselves, but this sounds like a message of hope for me in my goal of reaching 400.)

Thanks doc, Been lifting about two and a half years, lifting properly for about 18 months. I'm 30 in a couple weeks and had it in my head to pull 400 before then. First time i deadlifted i was struggling for 175. Also looking at your log you are going about it a lot more intelligently than i did, so you'll definitely hit 4 plates before too long!

I, like many have been using 5/3/1, with a few weeks here and there of heavy singles and doubles to see where am at, delighted that i hit this milestone but now all i can think is 500!!, Hit 240 bench today as well which i was happy with.

Jebus, I'm 5'7 so not as far to pull as a lot of guys, still felt like a long way though!! It was during my warm ups that i had my blackout (at 350lbs!)

Don't worry about it Nunn. You'll be passing me up in no time and when you do, I'll graciously get out of the way, clap and say, "Bravo Big Man, Bravo."
