now as most of you know i am NOT a powerlifter .. however i've been training westside with ivydude since january just as a change of pace
today i pulled 515 and failed on 525 .. i'm pretty happy with this and thought i'd share
Great job, man...thats alot of weight!!
Good job Glen..
so taking into account your height.. .. you had to pull it like 3 inches right?
yup .. roughly 3 inches ...
f-ing a-holes ...

yup puked my tits off with 500 and it seemed like it took a year to pull .. today i felt fine ... it was a quick pull .. i just didn't have enough left for 525 .. had i gone straight from 495 to 525 i think i could have gotten it
oh and by the way thanks guys
Nice job Glen
no doubt. 10lbs difference in a max feels like no difference. are you conventional or sumo?Originally Posted by glenihan
Awesome man! I'll be happy when I can get over 300!
impressive lift glen.

Nice one Glen
thanks again guys
conventional beelze .. never tried sumo and no real desire too .. i'm no PLer just doing this as something different ... i love having deads as a back exercise (i realize it utilize legs but would utilize them far more if i did sumo)
You should give sumo a shot, glen. Feels much better on the joints and still torches the back (IMO).
i hear what you're saying kwycke although my joints never hurt from deads .. its just both shoulders and both elbows on a lot of upper body exercises haha
Were you pulling underhanded Glen? My PL'er buddy always gives me **** because I pull underhanded with straps..lol..I just tell him to beat it..
left hand underhand right hand overhand
congrats, that's definately some nice pullin there
and mullet throw those straps away for the deads
I do the opposite, and I am right handed but for some reason that hand always gives up..I have pulled a 400 1RM, but I know I could have gotten more if it weren't for these ****in hands
Grats Glen.. that's is alot of weight.
I've just begun to throw my gloves away and work on grip strength... With out hooks or straps, I would not be able to lift that sort of weight.
i gotcha. i stuck to conventional up until 6 bills, then the **** just hurt too much. if you start feeling any aches and pains during conventionals, might want to consider sumos. like kwyck said, they still fry your back, it's just a lot safer. read a report recently where conventionals and sumos were studied and the findings were sumo used 21% less energy than conventionals thereby having greater body-mechanical advantages. i can dig it up if ya'll are interested. pretty interesting study.Originally Posted by glenihan
