Huge Deadlift PR

I don't normally post my results online, not because there's anything wrong with doing it, but because I'm incredibly shy and self-conscious. But...I need to brag, and there's nobody around to brag at right this moment, so...

In any case, for awhile now, I've had a goal of making a double-bodyweight deadlift. I weigh roughly 130#, and until recently, the heaviest I'd ever lifted was 225.

Today I walked into the gym, cranked out some Rage Against the Machine, warmed up with triplets, and smashed out PRs jumping from 246 to 270.

Not sure what accounted for the massive jump, but I'm going to mark it down to better dietary habits, good sleep patterns, and following the Crossfit WODs closely for going on two years.

Re: Huge Deadlift PR

the results that comes during a WOD can be a nice suprise sometimes

Re: Huge Deadlift PR

Thanks, guys. Bit stiff today, but not as bad as I expected to be after that.
