Just started today... Deadlift.
I have now started using the infamous deadlift today. Very intense. My 1rm so far is 275 lbs but my hammy is a little sore so I don't doubt I could do more, and was wondering what is a realistic goal for someone my height and weight to lift? I am 5'7, and 170 lbs there about most of the time. And please no sky is the limit answer. This is for strength not toning for those who want to answer.
Thank you very much in advanced.

you height and weight are completely irrelevant when setting a goal. Someone who currently deads 275 can have a goal of 500 if they are 5'7 or 6'2, it comes down to how bad you want it.
Power lifting is about beating your personal best, and setting new PRs. Ultimately its a sport mostly against yourself, so your going to be **** outta luck if you dont want a "skys the limit answer"
You can set a goal to dead 400, 500ibs, its just going to take longer than if to set a goal at 300.
Set a goal, and make bench marks to get there, try beating your weight every workout, you'll be making strength gains and increases in pulling poundage by the week.

Easy does it though.. Sometimes I want to go up higher than I know I should, and have probably prevented injury on many occassions. I agree you need to go up, especially in powerlifting but dont shoot for a ridiculous jump every time you work out. Be smart and make sure you eat right so you have your energy. an increase of 10-20 lbs is noteable and I personally would not try to power through a bigger increase. I wholeheartedly agree that you can get to 400 or 500.. just a matter of time and work!NTBM Line @ NUTRAPLANET

Careful with this beast, it will bite you.
Before you start aiming for big poundage, make sure your form is ON. Especially if you just started performing deads.
Like mentioned try and increase the weight a little every session. As far as goals, it about what your looking to accomplish by performing deads.

There really is no way to tell, so don't worry about it. You may be able to get to 600 or you may stall at 350 or 400, it's impossible to predict. Just try to keep getting stronger gradually over time. I would recommend using a proven routine for building strength so you're not just winging it all the time. Depending on your experience level something like Starting Strength or 5/3/1 would be proven routines to keep you making steady progress.

Needs to get his form down to where he can do it in his sleep first.

Well I found out cuz the plates I was using made the bar closer to the ground so I used some boards and rose the bar a little under mid- chin level and can DL 315 twice. I really like this lift, I seem to be pretty good at it and my back doesn't hurt either. I hope to develope Leg strength and hip strength although I know the squat is king of those groups. Is there carry over from DL to squat?

Geek im vice versa I work out with 300 on the squat rack and only 230 on the dead lift (this is what I rep 8-10 times not my max)
I have packed a solid 30 lbs on my dl though in this last month!
And make sure ur form is on buddy
I hurt myself one time doing a deadlift And it hurt to even stand up let alone work out
took like 2-3 weeks to heal up

while we're on technique discussion, i just realized i had spread my stance out to shoulder width (forcing my arms out wide) so i couldnt feel the push through my heels too much and my weights dropped.
just today i got that stance back to hip width/slightly narrower, got my ass way down, and felt the strength coming back. cant wait for my next meet sept 18.

Any advice to help do deadlifts if when i do them, i feel a pain in my lower back. HOw do i correct that?

If your back is still hurting, take at least a couple weeks off of deadlifting and let things calm down and then start back very light and make sure your technique is perfect. If your back is OK now, just start back very light and get your technique dialed in.

ed coan was about your height, and pulled mid 700s at your weight, as an example. if you were to gain some muscle and perfect your skill, you could get up in the 500-600 range in a couple years with proper training.
