    I didn't hurt myself, at least I hope I didn't. Posting anyway to be safe.

    Did a 415 x 6 deadlift set. After the first rep, both my arms had the same numb tingling feeling as when a leg falls asleep. This was a PR set yet I couldn't felt any strain through the numbness, it felt like lifting the bar. Wondering if this is any cause for concern. On the following set of 375 x 8, everything felt normal again.

    It is unusual but I would not worry about it. It might have just been a one-off random thing. The fact that you returned to the baseline for your backoff is very reassuring. If this becomes recurring (happens a couple of more times) let us know.
