Deadlift is something that I really despise. Was this stiff legged deadlift or just deadlift? Either way, thats a lot of weight...


Thannks K! Definitely didn't stiff leg that weight. How can you despise deadlifts? :shock: That's my favorite lift. :D


Those things are so hard thats why! I wish I did do them in the past though because now i have to start with 20's on each side! Don't laugh :P Of course thats with the stiff legged version. Im not sure about the regular deadlift though, but I doubt I can do even close to that!


Kollision man, you are a big dude. I bet you could easily deadlift 300+ on your first try. Just load it up and pull. :D

WHAT THE!? STIFF LEGGED 145 KG?!?!? Thats 319 lbs!!!


That is an awesome SLDL Daywalker. I may have to try those, haven't ever bothered. I'm always doing the full deadlift. Good work too recovering from your surgery and then stiff legging 145kg! That is awesome, many would have just given up. 8)

Nothing really groundbreaking today, just a solid workout.

Thursday -
Barbel Bench Press -
5x135 pounds
4x185
3x205
2x215
3x1x225
2x225 My first double with 100kg! 8)

Deadlift -
6x135 pounds
5x225
4x315
2x365
1x405

Met a cool 17 year old who worked in with me on deadlifts. He is 150 pounds after putting on 30 in the last year. He was surprised to learn that I only eat plants and weigh 240 pounds. :lol: I think it made a real impression when I pulled up 405 pounds without breaking a sweat. :D

Congratulations on the double 225 mate! I didnt know you weighed 240, welcome to the super heavyweights with me :) I lost about 15 lbs so Im about 265 right now. That deadlift of yours is sick. So is that guy interested in veganism now or somethin'?

Thanks K! Some day I will catch up with your 475 pound bench pressing, but for now it's baby steps. :x

I didn't know you were up to 280 dude! That's insane, I guess you are cutting now? Or did you just stop eating everything you could get in your mouth. :lol: I hope you are doing some before and after pics. I want to hit 250+ this winter and then cut down in time for Vegan Vacation 2006!

I don't know if the guy is interested in veganism or not, he wasn't even sure what it meant until today. Since his goals are big and strong, I'm glad that's the first impression he got of veganism. There are a couple of weeks yet before he goes back to high school, I'll point him to this site before I don't see him any more.

Too bad you are so far away Kollision, we could get together and work on my bench and your deads. 8)

Ya bro, too bad we are so far away. Well when the Vegan Vacation comes, we can all finally meet! Theres two californians here, but all are over 300+ miles!

As for the weight loss, it does constitute because my aunt was here and my eating schedule wasn't up to par. My friends actually noticed that I got leaner because of my arm positions werent far out from my sides and my face. Darn...that means its gonna take even a longer time to hit 300 pounds.

I was watching Brock Lesnars Home Video and I want to become him once again!

Don't worry about the bench bro, you are almost their to your body weight.
