This is me dead lifting last night. I ripped some skin off.
Nice Pull, DJ! 585?
How much do you weigh?
LOL I wish I lifted that much. They are 25 pounders. It is almost close to 300 pounds. I weight 126 now was at 130 few weeks ago but had not gone to the gym for a week or two. 4 reps at 4 sets. I forgot my straps that day and I was low on chalk. The nice thing about that gym is I got to stand on a olympic platform to do my lifts.
Hey, still a great pull especially at 130! I should have noticed that the bar wasn't bending a little! Keep up the good work!
That Oly platform is cool.
I just recently switched brands from nature made Isopure to Shaklee's physique work out maxmizer and I have noticed the difference. The price the physique is not common since I am use to the 10lb ON whey bags but I am working out a deal right now to get physique at a lower cost. Im going to buy in bulk to get the cost down in the future with 5 of my buddys.
Hey Jim, Congrads. good pull. How much weight exactly is it?
I believe like 270 or something. I just remember yelliing I am close to 300 pounds I am close to 300 pounds than I ripped some skin lol.
Thanks John for your support.
Yeah you know it brother. Keep it up. deads are my favorite exercise out of the big three and one of my favs
keep up the intensity and what sounds like a good work ethic, start eating meaty food like it is going out of style. Don't forget to sleep..... u will grow
the bar should be in your fingers, not that high in your palm.
good lift btw.
Deads rock. Throw in some rack deads every now and then. I feel like my CNS gets too taxed if I dead heavy too often so I incorporate te rack deads. Good pull, over twice your weight!
I did 355 easily today. nEXT TIME iLL TRY 365. Im two hundred pounds
Thanks for the tips and motivation.
your grip is perfect.
i dont know what dude was talking about
hooking your fingers (not hook grip) is better than gripping the bar way up in your palm.
hard to explain. but basically the bar should be in your fingers, not way up in your palm.
i stand corrected, you are right :hot:
a peace offering
Thanks for the 411.
Dude if my gym had those big 25lb weights I would use them for every thing... haha ... curls, bench, crushers ... you name it I would have a absurdly large about of plastic covered weights on the bar …
Good pull brother, scrapping your self up doing deads is common … if my shin is bleeding a callus on my hand is … I love it! GET SOME!!
