Well I prefer bodyweight exercises than lifting weights…but I figured I’d post here anyway. Hope no one is offended.

Just did 180 standing calf raises (divided into three sets of 60). This is not my best by far, but it is my best I could do today. I’m still recovering from a surgery not long ago so I was happy with that for now. Gave me an overall good feeling like I can get back to working out without restricting my self.

Last night I hit a comfortable 264 squat, 220 bench and 400 deadlift.

Resting up now until my meet this Saturday, looks like I'll be weighing in about 3lb lighter than last year but hopefully just as strong lol.

Rack Deadlift:
410x3

Left some in the tank. I think I could have cranked out a 4th just barely.

No way, people can post what they want in there. If it's an achievement for you then that's all the matters. Good work with those high reps, pretty crazy!

Do you alter the height on your rack pulls sometimes? Where do you normally pull from, mid-shin?

I do alter them from time to time. I usually pull around mid
to upper shin level.
