I think it's the fact that you've found your balance. For some people, they may have gain incredible joy from moving heavy stuff (or whatever it is they decide to do), but it takes time away from them doing other stuff. I read one of those small reports online trainiers usually give out when you subscribe t them and it stressed the importance of making time for others, because what's the use of being jacked or ripped if you have no one to enjoy it with. I'm honestly a bit guilty of this coz I get irritable sometimes when I miss my strict MWF sessions, but I'm learning to detach.

Mixing different styles of training really is the way to go anyway if you're trying to build up all-around fitness and testicular fortitude.

P.S. - Is her ass just that damn big from all the Squats, swings, and O lifts she does or she really can't keep her body rigid on push-ups.

I'd still house her in the paint.

I need to get motivated again. My lowest weight was 181. The last few months I've went up and down between that and 196. I got back on the horse for a week, eat decent, exercised, got down to 188, then got lazy again.

Hadn't deadlifted in a while due to some patella problems in my knee, but have sorted that out, and after about 4 months of not doing it, i managed to pyramid set to 495lbs of 1 rep, which is more than what I was doing before.

Quite happy. Must be due to doing back twice a week and getting more pull ups in than I used to once my knee injured and I couldn't do heavy squats either.

I'll be honest. My best set of 5 is just half of that (at least for the time being). How long have you been lifting? 495 is awesome for a recreational lifter.

About 3.5 years. I started deadlifting maybe a year and a half ago. Bit longer maybe.

That 495lbs came at 213lbs bodyweight (one of the lightest weights I've been at for a while) as well. No straps, no belt, just chalk. Never used a belt or straps either, but how much would it add to the lift do you think?

I've been doing deadlifts for the shortest time out of the main lifts (squats, bench, etc) and it has easily become my best lift.

Just a year and a half? Damn, man, what weight did you start with? I feel extra amped to get more plates now. To think I was already happy with emptying my 245 lbs worth here.

Each of them alone would add at least tens of pounds on your lift. It's been said that all the gear pro powerlifters (above-mentioned plus wraps, pads, their singlet, etc) use can actually add a couple hundred pounds to their best lifts. Even without the gear though, those weights are amazing! I'm honestly still in awe of your raw 495.

I started deadlifting 90lbs.

In a couple of weeks, that was up to about 250lbs. And slowly over the last year and a half or two its just kept going up and up.
Yeah, I've been thinking of getting a belt, just to make sure everything is compact and tight, and possibly prevent injury on those big lifts.

I've found pyramid sets helped me the most with squats and deadlifts.

My GF recently actually convinced me to take progress pictures, and I have to say, its made me even more motivated. Not that I needed much more, since I've been going the last 3 or so years, but its definitely a new thing that keeps me striving for better. I'd post some progress pictures, but I feel only scrutiny and bad things would come from it on this forum.

I'd be lucky to break 350 in a year and a half.

We'll see. If more people start posting progress pics, then I might join in.

Well, I did a couple pages back and no one gave a shit.

Wow though, I'm starting to think whether I took my progressions really slow or you're just that naturally strong. I started with 50 2 years ago but then found out I was doing them all wrong. I only really started doing good deads when I hit 165 last year around the same time. Cycled them in and out of what I do and just last June got a new set of weights so I decided to bring my lift up.

Have you read Power to the People by Pavel Tsatsouline? It's not that long a read and some people get irritated with his Evil Russian persona (I think it's hilarious though) but it has a lot of good stuff pertaining how use muscle tension to squeeze every bit of strength you have in a lift and also to lift injury-free, gear-free.

I don't think your progress would be slow, it might just be because I'm a bigger guy at 6'3 and heavier? All kind of proportional, and I've always found my back workouts have progressed rather quickly.

My chest on the other hand is a different story. Took me forever to get over certain plateaus. Starting deadlifting all that time back actually helped me get over some of the chest plateaus.
