603 pound deadlift inspiration

This is motivation.

603lbs. New PR for @BobbyMaximus. No belt. No straps.

I'm a long way from that, although I did just about run out of space on the bar today with two 45-pound bumper plates, a 25, 2 tens, and a 5 on each side. That adds up to 325 and I did a set of 3 with that.

Today's workout at the Colorado Athletic Club went like this:

1) Kettlebell Swings - 3x10 at 70lbs for warm-up

2) Deadlift - worked up to 325x3

3) Snatch-Grip Deadlift PR - 225x9 reps

(I try to set a PR in every workout...I have a bunch of lifts and rep schemes, and this is the one I chose today...and made it.)

4A) RDL - 3x10
4B) Military Press - 3x10

This deserves a big meal tonight. I've been eating way too lightly this week.

This weekend might see some accessory upper body training and will definitely see a lot of writing...I have a lot of work to do for TT and ETR.
