A couple of PR's this past week:
Deadlift: 530 lb x 1 (No belt 1RM)
No belt, with a hook grip. Not hard, but not easy.
Missed at 550 lb after, dammit.
The deadlift is my worst lift :/
Overhead Press: 265 lb x 1 (1RM)
FINALLY...an OHP 1RM!
I missed at this weight a few times. Glad I finally nailed it.
Made a small modification to my grip (narrowed my grip - something I wrote about on All Things Gym, but forgot about until today) and all my reps felt a whole lot easier.
Could be a long shot, but hopefully I can press 275 lb (2 x 45 lb and a 25 lb plate on each side of the bar) by the end of the year. Only 10 more pounds to go!
