The Jealous Bar

"The first lift [135] I take in pleasurably; the second lift [225] grabs my attention; the third lift [315], I'm hoping my chalky-grip won't give in; but for my fourth lift [405] and my fifth lift [465] it's on like donkey kong! My hands are chalked, my belt is on snug, and I'm enduring each and every rep."

Deadlifting is no joke - especially when you're over 5'10. Being tall is great for basketball, but it's a major obstacle if you're in the gym trying to build dense, lean muscle mass. You try and fill out such a torso - NATURALLY!
