First Deadlift competition
I have pulled in a few North American Strongman events...but we are allowed wraps, and they are always for reps. Last weekend I entered my first strict DL comp. at the Iowa State Fair.
Weight class: 198 (weighed in at 193 with jeans/T-shirt/shoes)
Picture is of my final lift. All were good lifts...and I strongly believe I could have gone for 675#.
I got first in my weight class, and 2nd best ratio overall.

Nice lift. That's 300kg (ish) @ 90kg in our money! That's very respectable indeed. Have an Irish "Maith thu" (well done) from me!

Squat more, and practice speed deadlifts with less weight.

If you want to increase your max deadlifts do more squats. Then practice speed deadlifts with bands if possible. Go on YouTube and look up westside Barbell club practice sessions.

Dynamic Effort (DE) work is explosive speed training. I like to take 50% of my max work set and perform reps against short bands. You don't need much weight for this when you're starting out, so you might even put 40% on the bar when doing these.
Grab the bar, and explode as fast as possible from the bottom position.
Try doing 5-10 sets of 2.
This is extremely easy to work into most raw programs. If you are looking to change up some of your accessory work, this might be a viable option for you. My DE template looks like this:
Squat Max/Deadlift DE
Bench Max/Accessory work
Deadlift Max/Squat DE
