lift all the things!
I pulled 465 for a deadlift double conventionally without too much trouble this week. i'm hoping to hit a PR before dragon*con (505 is current); today's lifting calls for benching 270 for a 3/4 range of motion, and i've got probably five weeks of progress out of the six remaining to keep piling on those particular poundages. i need to kick as much ass as possible before i have to take a medically-enforced sabbatical from the iron and become a reluctant cardio minion. squatting may or may not end up north of 425 for a single, and overhead pressing, likewise, may or may not exceed my bodyweight (which is a bucket list item i've approached but not achieved yet).
 based on the plates and bar configuration, this should max out around something in the neighborhood of 660-680 pounds; I haven't gone heavy on that move lately, but was able to pull 620 a couple of months ago.
