20 yrs old and lifts like that? WoW!!! You bench more than I dead...by a lot!
- 12-15-2004, 09:10 PM
I'm usually deadlifting 450 for 1 solid rep, and sets with weights between 315-405.. Once I get used to a weight, I'll try to max again to see if it went up..

Right now I'm 203.. My bench is 365 for 2, squat 450.. I've had these numbers since weighing 190, so it's not too impressive..Originally Posted by Rebel

never been a great deadlifter (much beter squatter) and over the last while have concentrated on romanian deadlifts instead, got 367lbs for a single at BW 159lbs, 31 yo. I'm only now getting back onto regular deadlifts 264lbs for 15 reps @ 154lbs BW. Piss poor I know LOL, but will now be moving onto lower reps.
But yeah Rebel, great numbers!
12-15-2004, 09:26 PM
I weigh 195 and do sets of 5 with 375
12-15-2004, 09:40 PM
I don't know what I can do know. Last time I was warming up to 550lbs and 500lbs felt like it was stuck to the ground.lol I think my back was overtrained from to many goodmornings and stifflegged deadlifts. I was in the 600 club awhile ago but my back was messed up for awhile. Well actualy it was 595 but why squable about 5lbs heh. I can't squat either because it hurts my elbows.lol I'm falling apart. I can front squat 450lbs though.
12-15-2004, 10:20 PM
I wight about 175-180 and can get 300 up for 1 rep, I workout with about 275 for reps. I been doing deadlifts since April, and I cant squat worth a ****, my deadlift is MUCH more then my squat (Over 100 pounds more) Weird huh? I can do one legged squats (pistols) and dont have a bad leg press, but squat is horrible.
12-15-2004, 10:51 PM
front squat with 450lbs????????????????? man on man!
12-16-2004, 12:03 AM
Seems like you're all in about the same range, proportional to bodyweight.
At 5'11, 165, I dead 315 for 5 reps for a few sets. 10RM is probably around 275. I think thats pretty normal. Not Herculean, not weak.
12-16-2004, 08:34 AM
5'11 - 241lbs - dead -555lbX2 - Think I could of got 600lb but I wore out. Trying it out again in 2 weeks.

5'8 200lbs last workout deadlifted 455 for 3 sets of 6,5,5
12-16-2004, 11:26 AM
at 248lbs, got 545 for 3. after the holidays, i'm picking them back up again.
12-16-2004, 05:57 PM
6', 210lbs. Deadlift 315x6. Max around 375lbs.
12-16-2004, 06:13 PM
5'10 217lbs deadlift-525x1 & 475x5
12-16-2004, 11:06 PM
I dont know if I deadlift correctly or not, but I do them on a 1ft-raised platform and the bar goes down to where its 1-2 inches above my shoes, i call it a full deadlift; and I workout with 195lbs at 8 reps...
i've never seen another person do deadlifts like these; its always letting the 45s rest on the floor... case in point, i did squats for the first time today in 8 months and was pushing 245 around like it was nothing... before i stopped doing squats a while back, i was doing like 165-175... my deadlifting really worked my legs big time...
not big numbers i know, but its higher reps, and i'm not a big guy
12-16-2004, 11:58 PM
Most decent gyms will have a lifting platform like that. Excellent for deads.Originally Posted by Bean

bouncing off the floor, 575 for 6
White lighted, in gear, 645.
My technique needs a lot of work though... I'm built to pull like a mother****er, I should be in the 7s
12-18-2004, 10:21 AM
I'm feeling very ashamed right now - weight 191, height 5'8, squat 400*20 reps, deadlift 385*8 reps - and worst of all flat bench 250 * 4 reps.
All in good time I suppose
12-18-2004, 10:51 AM
ashamed? hitting 400lbs for 20 reps on squats? if i tried some **** like that, it'd be the end of me. bench is overrated IMO anyway. i'd rather have a squat like yours any day of the week.Originally Posted by nodgodbod

with a belt, I pulled 500 the other day, i just started this cycle, i am prophecying, 580 raw by mar 1, when i hit 600 raw then i'll get in some gear. I want a 1600 raw total before i start competing . touch and go 400 bench will work for me.
12-18-2004, 11:25 AM
I got 396x1 a couple months ago. And was working with sets of 4-6 @320 with the extra ROM technique described above.
At the same time I squatted ~270x1 (245x3) and benched ~200 (184x3)
I was ~180lbs at the time
12-18-2004, 11:46 AM
396, eh? just couldn't do 397? what, did you put a sausage link on each side for the extra pound? j/k
12-18-2004, 12:05 PM
I'm in the UK, so all weights are in Kg. I actually lifted 180kg.
12-18-2004, 01:48 PM
6' 245lbs, 505x2
I think I could pull 530ish for a max, havent tried it yet, though.
12-18-2004, 02:51 PM
That's puking range there. If I go to 15 reps on anything above 225 my wind starts to fail me. I have a hard time with 10 reps at 405. Slap another two hundred pounds on the bar for a double though and I'm feeling pretty goodOriginally Posted by nodgodbod

6'0 220lbs -
DLs 325 4 sets 6,5,5,3
SLDLs 275 3 sets 6,6,4
Have never tried 1RMs...
12-18-2004, 09:44 PM
Yeah, I always like to keep Deadlifts 8 reps and below. Seem to be way more effective that way.That's puking range there. If I go to 15 reps on anything above 225 my wind starts to fail me.

how many of you guys use a belt?
12-18-2004, 11:23 PM
belts are for business meetings not the gym
12-18-2004, 11:42 PM
5ft5 currently 213 and hit 585 for 6 reps.... pause and lift no bounce bull****.
12-18-2004, 11:52 PM
I need to get my form correct. A weight I can get 10x sometimes, others I'll get 3x ...I don't get it ....
12-18-2004, 11:54 PM
i use a belt once i get above 405 just for safety purposes. only takes one wrong movement and i'll be ****ed.
12-19-2004, 01:01 AM
i cant use a belt anymore because i find it actualyl ****s up my form
12-19-2004, 07:27 AM
I use a belt for neither squats nor deadlifts - just make sure my form is ok - my grip fails me on deadlift though at 385 or so - so I may need to get me some wrist straps.Originally Posted by bulkmuscle
