    Set a 33 lb PR in squat with a final lift of 190kg/418lb. I uploaded to YouTube but the AC/DC playing in the background got it blocked. :-/

    5 lb PR on the press @ 82kg/180.4lb. Forgot to video.

    Just under 20 lb PR for deadlift with a pull of 236 kg/519 lb:

    236kg/519 lb Deadlift @ 93.4kg, Phoenix Classic, 10/31/20 - YouTube

    I'm gonna feel that deadlift tomorrow!

    Thanks guys.

    Looking through you guys' logs is inspirational.

    Browndog, great news about the cancer check up but a bummer about the quad issue! Best of luck with the recovery from that. You know what to do.

    64. 5'11" , 225. Squats going great. Three sets of 5 today at 335. But deadlift seems to be stalling. A few months back couldn't get to 5 at 350 and was cheating by doing touch-and-go, so reset at 325 and am not really progressing after 4 weeks. Doing BB Rows in lieu of deads on medium days. Was doing H-L-M, but recently switched to H-M to better manage volume.
    Welcome thoughts to get deads moving again.
