Thanks! I have had really good feedback from the blogs so far, I'm trying to make them as interesting & informative as possible... and obviously throw a little training in there as well haha.

New video coming next week guys, some brutal raw deadlifting and I can honestly say I haven't pushed that hard for a 1RM before!

There's a little bit of carnage, will be up by Monday. Final sets were an attempt at 440lb. bodyweight was 144. I am now just 11lb away from setting a new NZ raw deadlift record :wink:

8 weeks out from the Raw Powerlifting Champs...



Cover my Pre-WO nutrition, heavy deficit DL's and attempt a 400 deadlift... first time pulling in the 400's since February :)

Yeah, I compete in the 130-145lb class so I'm normally 140ish.

I am 5'8".

Brah, your lifts are totally friggin' metal for your bodyweight.

You're at almost 3.2x bodyweight. That's beastmode.

Thanks, I feel there's still plenty of room for improvement so watch this space.

7 weeks out from my meet, hoping I can nail a 429 deadlift if I'm having a good day. The 400 I hit in the most recent video I posted above didn't feel overly tough, I had more in the tank.

This was from the weekend just gone...



Would be happy with a 264 squat or anything higher for this meet, but really focusing on bringing them up now as they're a pretty weak lift for me. I'm sure a lot of it is technique ~ learning how to sit back into the squat will make a noticeable difference I'm sure. Not overly worried about bench or DL, they're not too bad.

Cool I'm diggin' the videos. I like to check out people's journals on here for info, ideas, tips, food suggestions, and motivation. Videos are even more interesting that reading them though. Keep posting!
