Today I sumo deadlifted 255. Two weeks ago I attempted to sumo deadlift my conventional deadlift PR of 245 and it wasn't happening. Mentally, I wasn't there. If there's one thing I've learned from lifting, it's that lot of times we first have to overcome mental barriers before we can overcome the physical ones, and that's why I chose not to crop this video. As you can see, I made two attempts to lift this before I actually did. 225 had come easy, as did 245, but when I first went to pick up that 255 I realized, "dang this is heavy." So I stepped away and did something that if you don't do, I encourage you to try: I imagined myself lifting the weight. I got myself there mentally, and did it. I'm so excited, y'all!!
