Indeed Rich - being a whore will get me everything I want!. Dunno why exactly, but the first rep is always the hardest, and the last rep requires quickly grabbing the extra set of balls on the wall.

Thanks Henry - I kinda rushed the lockout on it, as the bar was beginning to slip. It's a testament to the Texas deadlift bar and its knurly's being just right. I was certainly curios about how it would feel with no chalk.

Thanks Tom!! I would say that would be accurate, prvided I pulled it at an optimum time - ie - being fully recovered. 250kg pull in 2014 would be absolutely glorious!

Thanks Ravi!! I feel my body just wasn't quite ready for some reason when I attempted 500. On this session, I feel I would have had a good chance at it, based on how the ramp up felt, but opted to stick to the program and do my rep work. I know its obvious I have the strength for the big one.

Thanks Carl!! Indeed, all those reps were also good conditioning, as I got dizzy at the end. It is indeed so awesome to be able to do rep work without getting winded.
