Forgive the silly face, but I did a 350 in silver dollar deadlift. New personal best!


Holy shit! You lost that much weight?! Are you doing a similar program to the 5x5? I've just discovered the program and am pretty stoked to try it. Also, you've just furthered my point. You look fit but pretty thin. I would have never imaged you could lift that much weight. I've always pictured monsters like these to pick up similar weight.

Yeah, started seriously losing weight in 2010 and reached my weight goal last fall. Been working on rebuilding strength since.
I haven't really been following a pre-set program, my trainer manages that and really focuses on functional strength, so we do quite a bit of lifting, plank standing, metcon-ish stuff and such. Currently just twice a week, but I'm hoping I'll be able to step it up a bit in the near future.

Awesome! Tonight I've just discovered the 5x5 work out. Gonna try that out for 12 weeks to see what kind of gains I will be making.

Well, finally something I can contribute to this thread. Of course, it's an out-of-town find biggrin.gif

I also found these in the same store, I'm assuming they with the tux since the pantaloons have the correct buttons.

Men's Wearhouse has a line of suspenders called "Made in England". They are decidedly not made in England. I don't know if that's what you picked up, just FYI.

Okay, thanks for the heads up.

The "MADE IN ENGLAND" only pertains to the clinches.

That's awesome. Congratulations on the weight loss. You are starting to look like Stifler from his American Pie days.
