Great job on those Box squats Mike!

Thanks Man! I actually did two sets with 205X3. Still not messing with the weight yet on regular squats.

That's ok man. Gottaa learn to crawl before you can walk! Baby steps and gains will come!

Very nice workout Mike.

Only 10lbs away from crushing a #4!!! Great grip strength my friend! I don't think the MM3 would be a problem for you.

Had a little powerlifting contest between Me, Myself & I today. Just kind of wanted to see what I could do with all 3 lifts in the same workout. Didn't push it too much on the squats (still working on that form), pulled a new DO deadlift PR!, and benched about what I thought. Totalled 975, which is horrible for a 250lb guy I know. But now I know where I'm at. Going to do this two or three more times this year to chart my progress. Did everything with belt only. No wraps, suits, or shirts. Would be cool to get close to 1200 by end of year.

Usual warmup, then:

Squats: 185, 225, 255#

DO deadlifts: 365, 445 miss, 445 PR

Bench: 255, 275, 280 miss (left leg shot out from under me halfway up. Still came close to getting it)

Here is some vid i took. Battery died before bench portion.

All attempts turned down due to bad music :) Looking good - just stay smart with the bigger weight - slow and steady wins the race.

Squats looking much better Mike! You can tell how much confidence you're gaining compared to 2 months ago. Hard to tell on that 255 though man.... Looked a bit too high.... :whistel...lol

Would've loved to seen the bench though buddy! Overall, a good workout and nice change of pace!

I played classical japanese music on my last one for you Chris. :whistel Going to drop back and keep dialing in form. Next time I go big, I'll hopefully have some oly shoes and head to the gym so I have a real floor and a power rack. Then I'll be able to see what i can really do.

Just for the hallibut! :laugh

Oh, it was definitely a touch high. I think the side judge (Melissa) was worried the old man might get buried and said squat a bit early. Being the final judge, however, I counted it. Because, well... I could. HAHAHA Biggest difference I noticed on bench was speed. Much faster.

Thanks everyone.

I'm going to do those little personal contests every couple of months I think Manthos (too weak to do a real PL comp :blush ). Even though there wasn't anybody else lifting, I set a total that my imaginary competition hit and it really motivated me to do my best on every lift so i could beat it.

You're not weak Mike.

Keep those personal contests running and I would love to participate in the future...I think you started something very good here...So 3 basic lifts, body weigth categories and video proof will motivate a lot of us, me for sure, for bigger lifts. Go ahead Mike and organize it...!!
