308.

I usually compete in 275 but since I was recovering from injury and trying to get my lifts back to where they were I ate as much as I could last while. I knew I was going to be over 275 so I weighed in fully clothed and with a belly full of food (had lunch an hour before weigh-in) and weighed in at 289. So probably unfed and unclothed I am low 280s.
damn, at first I'm thinkin bit of a fat fuck but the pic you posted changed that opinion. you must be a tall mofo. how tall r u?

I've had shoulder issues my whole life but they seem to actually be better these days.

My knees hurt like hell for a few days after squats but they always recover. No back issues (knock on wood).

Fuck yeah flex. Nice work. You use straps when training deads? I constantly run into grip issues after bench day and I always bench first.

Haven't used straps for deadlifts for years now.

Just curious, I can pull more. But going heavy I just cant hold the damn thing. Maybe I'll have to change training days... Im also on a serious calorie deficit right now.

Do grip work, wear wrist wraps when you pull, and lastly use a hook grip when you deadlift.
