Barely could fit the weight on the Hammer machine today. I've said it before but it's lame watching DC videos and they are using machines that can fit 8-10 big plates, whereas I'll be lucky to have 5 on there. Oh well. Having a great training week. Got after the squat the other day and pulled out a surprise on the deadlift. Told training partners got 6 last time, hoping for 5-6 today. One, Chris, looked at me and why not 7? "Lucky number 7," was my answer as I got ready. Got through rep 6 and sure enough, had enough fire in me to go for 7. Blew it up to my knees and had to do the slow grind to lock out. Man, what a feeling. And to think the deadlift and I were bitter enemies at one time.

Thanks man! Hope all is going well. See you haven't been updating your log much, still making time to train I hope.

It's getting back on track and will be better than ever with the 531 programming... not feeling beat down nearly as often cycling the work weight. Good to hear that you've had the same experience with the belt.

Haha, looking to make this a good training year. In the next few months, hoping to hit some long time goals -- reps with 500 in squat and 600 in deadlift. Had to laugh a little at myself after reading your meet results. A solid 30-40 lbs heavier and I'm in the process of chasing your numbers. Your no barbell experiment will give my deadlift a chance to catch up.
