Couple of new PBs recently:

Dead lift: 140 kgs x 1 (>2x bodyweight)
Back squat: 5x5x102.5 kgs (1.5 x bodyweight)

Pretty happy with these, given that I've been eating below maintenance recently (trying to get back into 32" waist pants).

Dead wasn't a true 1RM, I'd done 5x100 and 3x120 prior to that rep.

So I've been doing Lyle McDonald's UD 2.0 and yesterday was my 'power workout'.

I got a PR on Standing Military Press 195x2 (After a few working sets)

Also got bench for 6x3 of 275 (Most reps at 275 I've done in one session)

Barbell Power Snatch = 3 sets of 115 lbs for 5 reps

This is the first time I've tried this lift with more than an empty barbell. So far I like it.

Did my first PL meet a couple weeks ago. Hit a PR on squat and bench (640 and 400). Never did 400 with a pause before. Then, made a rookie mistake on the deadlift. 605 flew up so I went strait for my current pr of 710 and no go.

Heres the vid

And...

Did a strongman comp in Arizona the following weekend. Ended up 3rd in a tough group of guys. I was the top finishing amature, so I was pretty happy about that. Still need to improve on farmers and stones.

Here's that vid

Hey Jason, no criticism here just curiosity. You look like you have a pretty narrow grip for bench. Is it the angle or do you just prefer a narrow grip?

Great work and from.

Personal preference. I have a bad left shoulder, and it bothers me to bench wide. So, most people's "close grip" bench, is my normal bench. If you notice, my left arm kind of lags behind my right in any pressing event. Not as noticable on bench, but if you look at my strongman vid, you'll see there is a significant difference between the right and left on the circus dumbell. It's a neural thing. I've had significant damage to my brachial plexus and my left trap does not fire correctly.
