I competed in my first novice comp over the weekend and had a blast, didn't realise how fun they day was going to be.

My work gym has a total of 177.5kg in plates and I'm close to deadlifting the lot and want to progress further. I can either join a gym or pay for some more weight, work won't pay unfortunately so looking at adding 2 extra 20kg plates. Cheapest I have found is $70 per plate.

We know what it is.
when we do multi joint movements the smaller muscle fatigue before there is any real inroad to fatigue of the larger muscleture in the exercise, hence doing multiple sets.

I seriously intend to be doing this as long as I'm alive. To me, lifting is a part of Healthy lifestyle, both physically and psychologically. Unless my joints give out I'll be Squatting, Deadlifting, Pressing, Chinning and Dipping. I may not do things like Barbell Rows as I feel they irritate...
