Sorry if this is too lewd, but if that avatar is you, then I think some of the boys here will need to go change their pants.

And you need to post the rest of your lifts on the Strength Table!

Nice!

My last max test was 460#, but I could probably hit 470 now. Once I finish this MadCow cycle I'm going to deload for a week and then test my maxes again - so about 7 weeks from now. Hopefully I'll be able to hit 500 then.

Currently we have:
Mattsxvx @ 485#
jamessxvx @ 475#
asparagus @ 460#

Anyone else want to race to 500?

God, 500 seems ages away.

Hoping to hit 450 by the end of the year though!

I did.

385 bench
550 squat
605 dead lift

I'm 42 and do NOT take any supplements. Been a vegetarian and recently became a vegan.

lol@awesomeness....just working out correctly and NOT over training. I was 278 :shock: , now 248 (in 3 months!) and my worst fear was that I would lose too much strength. And here I am lifting more than I have ever lifted.

I'm a firefighter/EMT. I mostly work out just so I can keep up with all the young guys on the department! lol

Nice numbers there! A 600+ # pull is nothing to balk at, no matter how heavy/big the lifter. That's a lot of weight - thanks for "fessing up"!

Well I just ordered myself some heavy duty squat stands so I can get my strength/powerlifting training started again soon whilst I cut. I get a bonus in my pay next month so I'll probs get some weight plates then, another 50Kg or so probably :)
