Keep in mind I'm a broly-in-training (started lifting weights mid-October of 05) and have only been pulling since mid-December. My starting weight was 95lb, 3x8 Today I did: Reps x weight 12x135 (warmup) 8x185 8x205 (almost threw up here, farted once) 7x225 (almost threw up again, farted twice) 5x235 (this was the closest I've been to throwing up at the gym, farted before I pulled so it wouldn't distract me mid-set ) I wasn't going to go for a 5th set, but after doing 7 reps of 225 with relative ease, I knew I needed to go for more. The 5x235 wasn't to failure, but my form was getting sloppy, so I cut it short (it was still a great workout). For some reference, last week I ended my workout with 4x215. I also switched my grip from a double-overhand to a over-under, which I should have done much sooner. I'm 6'3" 215lbs and happy to be finally repping more than my bodyweight. It's safe to say that I'm addicted to weightlifting now (not because of today, but in general).
