You can lift that?? (self.ThankTRP)

submitted by alpha_n3rd

Due to bad knees I've had to severely deload my deadlift. Today I was pulling 190. This skinny kid comes into the weight room, and I see his eyes bug out as he watches me do my set. "You can lift that??" he says as I clunk it back down. Well, duh. I guess he didn't notice the guy behind me doing shrugs with six plates. But it still felt good.

190kg or 190lbs?

190lbs it's really nothing but I still impressed the skinny kid

I my 5RM PR was 225lbs before my knees shit the bed. I've been taking it easy and they fell better so I'm trying to slowly work back up.

long term consistency trumps short term intensity.
