I got it off my chest and halfway up, but that was it. The weight wouldnt budge after that. I think I could do it if I didnt do so many sets before attempting 235. It is going to happen next time.

Had a really crappy workout today. Felt really lethargic and was having aches and pains everywhere. Snapped a pic atleast. Deadlifts are good for you. Probably not even going to post the workout.
