This is embarassing, but hey, I can't pretend everyday is a good day!
First thing you will notice is my bald spot, ha, ha.

0-26 seconds: Me benching 270. Believe it or not, 275 went up much easier but I don't have it on video because my camcorder was low on battery and I wanted to tape the deadlift. My arms didn't shake on 275, I just blasted it up.

I really focused on my form for 275 and went faster on the negative which saved some energy for the positive. You can see in the video that I brought the bar down painfully slow on the 270.

27-40 seconds: Me deadlifting 385 with crappy form (bar away from my shins and my grip was off as the one side comes up first)

41-56 seconds: Me failing at 401.5 or 407. You can here my 8 year old say "go, go, go" and then my wife say "ahhhh" when I miss. My hips shot straight up.

57-1:12 seconds: I believe most will agree, that this attempt, whether it was 401.5 or 407, went up faster than my 385! And with better form, I kept the bar even and right along my shins. It felt better than all warmups and the first two attempts.

And you get to see Daddy's #1 fan, my 4 year old jumping up and down for this one!
