    New DL pb

    Its been a hard road learning to lift, especially since Ive had to deal with 2 shoulder surgeries and a snapped bicep tendon........all this happened within just over a year. I gave it all I got since March but this includes my pt time also. Ive been watchin Corbi in beast mode and it really inspired me. Today I went in fasted at 157 and went for it and pulled my 320 pb. It went up pretty good and tried 335......failed, lol. I can pull more I think but I shoulda tried 325...... oh well, maybe next week.

    Im not big on takin pics of myself....... especially flexing in the bathroom,lol. But hey, its a great way for me to track my progress. Im really proud of myself. Im tellin ya, I was one skinny weak S.O.B........ I should dig up some old pics. I know, I gotta long way to go, but Im in this 100%.

    Also, since you've already injured your bicep, you may want to stick with a double over hand grip and switch to straps when you can't hold it. Several people have snapped biceps with mixed grips.

    Not sure, its a YMCA..... I havent seen anyone use chalk. Dont know why but very few peopl do DL's or squats while Im there. My grip is pretty strong from years of cutting metal at work but it will prolly fail at some point.

    I will research straps, chalk , and double overhand grip. Thanks for everyones suggestions.

My weight was 158 but I lost #4 last week (154) when I had a sinus problem. Took me a week to gain back what I lost.

    That's the thing. Getting past the pain and the self perceived notion that you can't do more. It take time and a whole lot of consistency. It can be done...just depends how bad you want it and how hard you work. Really no way around it. - PBateman2

    The YMCA I workout at does not allow chalk. What I do is keep some in a ziplock bag then wrap that in a sweat towel so no one ever really even sees the chalk. When I'm done I make sure I clean the bar well. I figure as long as I minimize any mess then no one has a reason to complain.

    In other words, don't ask if chalk is ok. Just try to keep it on the down low as I can almost guarantee it's not allowed at your YMCA either
