    there arent that many ppl at my gym when i go so i dont really get the looks.

    one thing i do hate is when big dudes give you ****, but they can't put up much more than you even if they wiegh 80 lbs more....that did happen the other day when i was deadlifting....

    i love deadlifting. not many people at my gym at home deadlift, but at the college gym i usuallly get a few ppl who try it after me. 50lbs in 2 months is awesome, bro. westside is a good program. i know when i was about at the 445 range i hit a wall and i dropped it for more squats and got a huge boost. good luck and keep gainin!

    congratulations! and re: people staring, I'm not that much bigger than you and even when I don't go heavy people stare like they've never seen someone actually ****ing put a ton of effort into an exercise -- i.e. "what the hell movement is that?" (deadlifts, sir).

    i maxed out a few weeks ago at 435 at a bw of 176.... which is HUGE for me because i am missing fingers on my right hand.... so its really hard to actually fully grip the bar with that hand... only my index finger and thumb can FULLY grab the bar.
