    Here's my new deadlift rep PR from yesterday. Is it weird that my traps are more sore than my lower back after heavy deadlifts? After 17 total reps at 475, I'm really feeling it today!

    @arditarose - beautiful! It's amazing the difference that a lifting shoe can make. I know I adore mine.

    Nailed my squats this morning! I will forever find it crazy how well my strength held up while doing minimal volume at low loads. 80%, 117.5/259.04 for triples. (The hockey guys are doing their max rep squat challenge. They were 60-80 reps into their second set. Yes, they are crazy)

    What kind of % do you use for 60-80rep squats??? LOL

    I just bought the freaking Nike Romaleos this week and jesus...I'm in love. I have not hit this depth at this weight, ever. Part of it is definitely due to the shoes but I probably should give a little credit to myself, training, and trying not to be a wimp too. But the shoes...

    my friend just got squat shoes- and he's all limbs (arm and legs) so he's a really awkward squatter. But he was like- I don't know how I ever squatted without these shoes- best thing.EVER.

    I'm hoping to find someone on Prime Day tomorrow for sale. I'd definitely like to have a pair!

    @McCloud33 - they are at 40%. Two sets to get as many reps as possible. I think the top one got around 250 reps between the two sets.

    Honestly, every scenario I've ever seen where someone goes from flat shoes to squat shoes they are like

    Where have you been all my life?

    That's just an insane amount of reps!

    I'll be offline for a couple weeks while doing some sightseeing in Europe, so here's one from last week.

    300lbx7, but what was more impressive to me was that when both of the true squat racks were taken my mindset was "Sure, I KNOW I can hit 300 without the safety!" I probably would have gone for another rep or two in the rack, but still...300 for me without the safety was big mentally.

    This second one was from the same workout and I think is the first time I've hit over 135 for 5. Albeit only 5lbs more, but for OHP I'll take anything I can get.

    yeah- seems like a common thing.

    I would really like them- I love the stability of plates under my heels- but gah- paying for a wedding is sucking up every cent.

    85% was feeling like 70% today. Put conventional and sumo head to head to see what feels better and they both feel the same. It's looking like it's going to be a warmup room decision on which form I use on the platform. 145kg/319lb for easy doubles. This was set three and four.

    New PR for me this week on the squat department. I could use a half inch. But I'm going to accept this as the new one rep max.im very pleased. End of a twelve week sheiko cycle. Definitely improvements made!

    Yeah honestly I shouldn't have spent the money I did on mine. I'm too vain to wear the cheap ones and the adidas which are a little cheaper did not feel good. I don't regret it though. I will never go back.
