    Got a couple of singles at 243 (110kg) last weekend, and was chuffed...then got 5x3@220 (100kg) yesterday and now wondering what my *real* 1RM is...

    I hit 545 the other day easy (coming back from back injury, so that was a small victory) If my back holds up I'm hoping to hit 600 raw in the next few weeks.

    Here's the 545:

    150kg (about 330lbs I think) without a belt, wraps or suit. But, it's not that impressive given my weight. I'd like to see a 500lb raw squat.

    squat is climbing pretty good right now. raw, no belt, no wraps. got 455 for a pretty easy single. might have had another 20lbs in me too.

    You had at least another 10kg in you last weekend.

    I have done 245kg in the gym before Christmas.

    I sank 240kg easily just two weeks ago and then missed a 245kg on the platform at the weekend.

    *throws hands in air*

    Need to be more consistent!

    Saving it for Worlds ;) I'll get my 125 there and you can get 250 minimum. Deal?

    Deal :) I am gonna deadlift over 300 at worlds or I will be in hospital trying. 250 for squat is in me just need to produce it on the platform :)

    Still waiting on big Pete getting back to me but don't see it being an issue

    Just did my 3rd RAW meet yesterday (APA). Belt and sleeves.


    Got 270lb at 157lb. Very happy with it as I added 25lb to my meet max (albeit at 9lb heavier) and it was only 5lb off my gym 1RM (which was parallel but possibly would not have been white lighted). May have had a few more lbs in me - but glad I decided to go for the weight I did. It was my 4th lift as it was a State record in the Masters division (allowed by APA).

    Clipped the uprights on the walk-out - need to work on that as I keep doing it.

    Nice lift. Next time you compete, get them to set the racks 'in'. That prevents a bit of banging on walk out.

    Thanks.

    Yep. I usually try to wedge the bar more - but it was a bit intimidating as they had all these cameras around as it was a record (for their website I assume). One actually set up right behind me but was told to move to the side by the refs. It threw me and I rushed things a bit. I definitely need to take my time more on the set up.I was also a bit anxious as it was 'up there' re weight for me. Felt good though.

    Thank you. I thought about that afterwards but was not sure if they would if my grip was not out wide. Will ask next time.

    What are sleeves? They look like knee wraps?

    They are sleeves - SBDs. I just got them last week - highly recommend.

    I have them and rehbands. I use rehbands for day to day training and the sbds for competition as they are a pita to get on and off. Having said that, I love them.
