    Unfortunately not, I'm in the South Island so not many Maori's down here. I usually train alone and late at night when my kids are in bed, very occasionally I get to train at Eastside Barbell Club (a local PL'ing gym) but that's once every couple of months if I'm lucky.



    That was from the Raw Champs last December at Eastside, that was my final attempt at 418 (I annoyingly pulled 429 a week later). I won my weight class with a 913 total.

      Actually, you're wrong. Benny weighs in at 380lbs and his 1015lbs pull (highest of all time) aint 3x his bodyweight. Close but it's not 3x if you want to nick pick.

                • PR today:

                  After working up, ending my work set with 300 x 4 sets (5 reps), felt good and decided to try to go past my prior best (315). Threw on 330 and knew I could have done two. Did another one for kicks.

                  5'8
                  185lbs
                  41 years old
                  Training heavy: 2 years or so
                  Training really heavy: 1 year

                  Still going toward my goal of 405.

                        • 405 for 6 reps is my best lift, I am natty and a tall guy so dead lifts are not my speciality.

                              Goddamn you're a beast, Joe. I did 605 for the first time ever last week and I felt like my joints were all going to detach. No way could I get 585 for more than 2.
