Yeah, I'm kind of anal-retentive, I want to make sure I am consistent in case I do a powerlifting meet. I used to use a box, but I felt that the band was better because there is no way I can I can accidentally use the band to support me in any way.

Thanks for the kind words, but 350x5 was kind of sloppy, and there is no way I could do 3 sets with it. So in terms of Starting Strength, I could probably manage 330 for 3 sets of 5.

Great goal for deads, 455x5 would be beastly! I haven't tried 455 for reps, not sure what I could manage, but I'd be happy with 5 for sure!
