I deadlifted my body weight tonight!

Friday, April 12, 2013

I think the title says it all.

This morning I weighed 65.9kg, and tonight I deadlifted 67.5kg. Coz I could. I even did it 4 times, AND I have witnesses!

I was also that annoying advice person at the gym today. Well, I offered to help and it was accepted, I didn't just butt in. I was finishing up my squats (75kg, thank you very much) and had already done my chin ups when I saw a couple of young guys trying to do chin ups. They weren't quite able to so after a bit of ribbing ("come on, even I can do better than that!"), I offered to help. I told them they could say no if they wanted, but I was happy to show them how to use a band to make the chin up easier until they were ready for the real deal. They accepted and I had a chin up lesson with 3 guys. Then they were my deadlift witnesses. They were impressed :D As they should be, really.

    That is such a great story - I find people in the gym/fitness centers tend to be very supportive of each other even when their levels of performance are pretty different. Thanks for sharing it.
