Deadlifts

I'm pretty proud of this.  I'm lifting 195lbs - 8 rep max.  Back in December, 205lbs was my 1 rep max (meaning I could only lift it once).  I don't look pretty at the gym, at 5:30 am, but I'm pretty damn strong - so who cares? (Besides, it's the gym.)

This weekend I had my ITF Taekwondo belt test and received my green belt (half way to black belt!).

I'm always interested in what people do for working out.  Leave me a comment about what you do for working out!!!

  1. Nice work!

    I've been powerlifting in my basement for the better part of the last five years and specifically doing Wendler's 5/3/1 for the last two. My numbers are creeping steadily up while avoiding injury and joint stress and I'm not nearly the great lardy bastard I was in college. At last check, I'm 268 @ 19% bodyfat. Not bad for a cartoonist on the wrong side of 30....

    1. I did stronglifts 5x5 for a while, before starting crossfit.

    2. Right on. Stronglifts was where I started. It worked pretty slick for the first 300 pounds of my squat, then I had to switch over.
