    I think you can do it man! Proper programming, food and rest. I'm pretty sure you can pull 455. Have you been pulling anything recently? Or after you tested the 1Rm back in august you been taking a break?

    A question for you. As tall as you are how do you get around the long lever issue? I have to pull sumo because my arms and legs are stupid long... my arm span says I should be like 6'2" but I'm only 5'10" (Arm span = height theory).

    best i have hit was 425 about 2 weeks ago, I deadlift about ever 2nd or 3rd week. Working on form a bit but resting my erectors.

    ummm long lever issue? not sure, I have rather strong legs I think. squatted 380 as a senior in high school so my glutes and hips are powerful enough, honestly its getting it started and past mid shin thats the worst for me.

    I have recently learned to "row" the weight as I pull up and have added about 20# just by doing so

    Hmm. I have a feeling that's more like "squatting" your dead lift, than deadlifting it. I'm not 100% sure though as I don't do conventional deads much anymore. Only when I do cleans. Although, you could mean "Rowing" it like how one would set up for a cable row? Pulling the weight towards you with your legs and using the weight as a balance while shooting your body upward.... Lucky though.. .my legs get in the way when I deadlift. the longer arms make it hard for me to explode. Kinda hard to explain. Your deadlift is better than mine as I the most I've gotten conventional was 315x8. I could've gone higher in weight but I blew myself out on that one. Hopefully someone else will jump in. Rodja from Primordial Performance is really good at this type of exercise science type deal.
    If you pulled 425 then I'd think 455 in 3 weeks would be REALLY pushing it. Not impossible... but you have to be feeling amazing, and have everything on point that day.

    I've heard 2.5x bw is amateur level. So you're almost amateur competition level for the dead lift.

    What is your training protocol btw?

    hmmm protocol... not much of one

    4 exercises usually 3-4 sets of 8-15 reps depending....

    i deadlift every 2nd or 3rd week.
    for back its
    lat pulldown, t bar rows, DB rows, and close grip pulldown with straight arm cable pulls
