Haha, I am a lot weaker than many of you guys but I had some fun with deadlifts today

5x1x365lbs
6x5x315lbs

Hoping to PR anything over 405lbs by New Years.

Even though it's common knowledge that a lot of people don't know how to squat properly, it just blows me away every time. Guess what I had to watch in between my deadlift sets?

Smith machine is good for close-grip bench when no spotter is available.

Dear Diary,

Although I hit a PR of 185x7 on the BB row, I had a terrible day with the bench. After being out of the gym for two weeks (1 week off after the smolov program, and 1 week off due to flu), I tried to go for a new PR on the benchpress. Silly me. I hit 170 no problem (my old PR), then went for 180. The guy spotting me was a nice guy, but I guess spotting wasn't his niche. I told him to let me grind out each rep, unless I ask for his help. Three quarters through my 180 attempt, the grind starts. My spotter panics and helps me finish the rep, even though I know I would've had that, 100%. I went for 190 next. Again, I told my spotter not to help, unless I ask for it. Once again, at three quarters through my rep, I start grinding out the final quarter. My spotter, once again panics and decides to help me finish my rep. This time I started to get fed up, and tried to go for 190 again. This time, I really needed the spotter cause I got through half of my rep and failed. I felt exhausted after all this.

i'm pretty sure if you can do 315 for like 10+ reps, you could do 4 plates...

If I can I know you can for sure

Are you still at gold's?

Ya, I'm still at gold's. I think I can do 4 plates, the thing is that I need to prep my mind for it. I wonder what my true 1 rep max would be.

When I went there, everyone was doing partial! Some guy doing partial was training a guy to do partials

There's a place and a use for cables and smiths. They're not useless at all.

Use a large pair of channel lock pliers to bend it back. It shouldn't bend that easily so I would consider returning it or replacing the ring.

If you bend it, it will probably just bend back. Either return it, or maybe through a caribeener(sp?) or something similar on it instead?

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.
