I moved up to 205 for reps for standard deadlifts on sunday, was feeling pretty good about it, too.

 

<<still weak

 

It's not the weight grasshoppa, it's the form.

 

Both of those dudes appear to be in excess of 300 lbs, so him dl'ing 585 is not all that unreasonable.  It's just a lot more than normal guys can do.

585 is ridiculous with a barbell. I don't think I've ever seen it.

I wouldn't even look at it...  He was at the end of his workout and I watched him do two final sets of 4 reps each.

 

This same guy was benching 315 for reps on the flat bench yesterday and 405 on the decline...  when I say reps, I mean like sets of 8 or 10.

 

These are young guys too... I'd say early 20s and they don't look roided up, they're just big.

There is a guy at my gym who was an offensive lineman for the Falcons back in the 70's. Even at his age, he is freaking huge.

So this happened last night... I was doing squats and there was an empty bench maybe 4 feet behind and 2 feet to the left of the power rack.  It was away from the other benches.

 

Smoking hot girl in little black boyshorts comes up while I'm squatting, with plenty of other benches available, and starts doing bodyweight exercises on the bench, close enough that I could have easily hit her with the barbell if I lost any kind of balance at the bottom of the squat.

 

Using that as motivation to keep max control and balance, I pounded out 4 more sets of puny 155 pound squats (My legs are still so weak and my joints aren't used to the movement), ignored her, and moved on.

 

Did she want the D?  Who in their right mind would come and do that basically right under someone who was squatting?

She was looking at your butt Jase.

 

You should have said "How you doin'?"

I drove 85 miles does that count?

I've been out of the gym since friday, got a head cold and been really busy at work... It sucks.
