    finally deadlifted double my bodyweight (now with progress pics)

    did it last night at the gym. warmed up with 225, did a few reps with 315, 365 single which felt really light... and put up 405 for the big finale. form was sloppy, it was slow coming up but hey, the weight went up so i can't complain. lower back feels a little tight today but nothing out of the ordinary.

    my weight was 197 in the morning and 202 after the gym. yeah i know not a huge milestone to a lot of you but it was a big deal to me. :bigthumb:

    edit: oh yeah my friend pulled 495 right after which was also cool to see

    edit2: found some before and after pics for reference so rate my bulking progress... i know the lighting is different but it's the best i can do

    conventional. i've never tried sumo deadlifts.

    no belt or straps either, just chalk for grip.

    yeah dude i got fucking JACKED!!!!!! :hsugh:

    sorry i didn't label but it's pretty obvious that the left is the after shot

    oh yeah i should add that i stumbled upon f&n right around the time the before pics were taken. i worked out for 4 months prior to that but it was more or less a waste of time doing a worthless workout that wasn't getting me anywhere. so big thanks to everyone here, this place really got me going in the right direction.
