Achieved one of my before end of year goals today, and i am over the moon.
deadlifted 142.5kg(314lbs)which is 2xbw.

i was struggling with around 110kg a month ago and was getting frustrated.
i had a few weeks off from deadlifting before the WOD
then today i was just thinking about how aggresive olympic lifters are and i just tried to rip the weight off the floor and it worked.

happy times

Congrats! Got mine last month. I usually never try for a best, just start at a lower weight and keep adding ten pounds. I think it takes a bunch of reps to get a groove going with the deadlift.

Also, doing triples at 85% seems to help. Good job.
