Gains being made

Set my personal deadlift record today---3 times! First lift was 275, then 290, and finally did 300. Now, before mocking me, keep in mind I weigh 152.

James Harrison laughs at my accomplishment, however.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

Mock ya? Most guys would blow a nut at 275, both of'm at 300!

You kind of remind me of my old partner Tom, little feller, 5-9 'bout 175-180 at his peak. One evening while he was doing leg presses some wannabe dressed in designer gear walked past him and quipped "You can let those little weights on, I'll need it next". To make a long story short when Tom told him he was done we laughed watching him struggle pulling the 100s off. Heck, Tom was only warming when Mr. Fashion Plate opened his yap!

I retired toss'n iron in '02 and haven't kept up, who is Harrison?

For me, the lifting is all about being a better me.

Re: Gains being made

Any gain forward is better than falling behind.I lift every day just to maintain what I have.Making gains really isn't a big concern as long as I feel like I did something when I leave.I used to lift competitively and ran into some real pinheads that provided quite a bit of entertainment value.I always liked the big tough guys that would debate what to open up with.Almost always they'd start with way less than what they were thinking about doing and get buried lol.One local tough guy showed up with three hot chicks at a meet,wearing a Steven Segal leather jacket in the middle of july.He originally was gonna open with a 350 bench but decided to start with 275 and it buried him lol.Surprisely.the chicks still left with him.Saw another guy do the same thing one time and it came down so hard on him that he cracked his sternum and they took him away in an ambulance.
If you can dead lift and bench twice your bodyweight,pound for pound you're stronger than 99.5% of all people.You're doing good.Just do it for your own reasons.
