i found 15kg of weight plates in my mate's garage so i've upped my deadlift to 65kg. been doing 5x5 but it's still not much of a challenge. next step is to buy two more 10kg plates and work on that for a while. then keep going up in 20kg increments till i reach my limit. i'm doing deads mainly for my lower back so am locking out my knees as early as possible.
starting to show results... i've put on just under 5kg (of hopefully mostly muscle!) since i started training semi-seriously about two months ago.

i was getting too big anyway, so it's all good
