Thanks Jim. Had another conversation, this time with the owners today. I'll give details after the break.

I see with the Brute press being assistance. I assumed it was a strongman type thing you were doing. How about this, every third week or so, do the Brute press first, then bench? Once you've grooved bigger weights doing them after benching might still keep them inching up. Then another bump on the next third week, etc. Or flip it with OHP on OHP days instead. Just a thought.

Just tell me to shut up if you're sick of my thoughts! I'm like Columbo. "Eh, just one more thing....). I can't help it sometimes.
Haha, no worries Mike, keep the ideas coming. It is a strongman thing, but until I can press 225 overhead for reps, specialized training is more just to have fun than anything else.

Gym story. Don't feel like going through the whole thing, so here are the highlights.

Owners talked to me today. I have the feeling they thought I would be intimidated. Please. I'm 6'4", 305 pounds, and they're under 5'10" and biceps warriors at best.

I maintained a polite and professional attitude while refusing to simply stop deadlifting. I pay my dues, I will train. I am more than happy to find a solution that fits everyone.

We discussed a few different options, including using another room they have but don't really use.

I suggested that I would be interested in buying plates off of them if they were going to get some new ones any time soon. They aren't getting new ones, but they offered to order plates for me with the gym discount. This may work out to my benefit yet.

If you can't kill them with vinegar, drown them in honey.

Great cardio workout! Looks like my kind of cardio!!! the bs you have to deal with at the gym is a Fn joke! Sorry that's what you gotta deal with, but think it explains your big numbers...Angry Lifting=AWESOMENESS!!! Hopefully you'll move up here and you and BtB can come to my house, deadlifting is not only allowed, but mandatory
