    YEAHHHH...um, I've failed two weeks in a row on squats. Attempted 275 lb, 3x3 two Fridays in a row. Missed the third rep on the first set both times. Might be overreached from such heavy deads. I'm deloading deadlift this week, then will hopefully hit somewhere between 270 lb and 275 lb for 3x3 toward the end of the week (most likely 272.5 lb for a small PR).

    Hit a deadlift PR yesterday of 352.5 lb! I have crossed the 350 lb benchmark...eh-hmmm, deadmark.

    That is damn impressive. I bet with a competition deadlift bar you could get 20 or 30 more lbs.

    Thank you. Yeah, I've never cheered before. People walked around asking who screamed.

    Merci! I like to think so. I know I could have gotten 355 lb had I not gone for 352.5 lb. That bar is stiff as heck, too.

    I took another video. So, naturally, here's a post. I'm good at copying and pasting Youtube url's.

    Deadlift 317.5 lb, 3x3
    On the same day, I had a paused bench PR of 135 lb for 3x4 (not shown on video).
