What's up guys. First post but been using AM for awhile. I've only been dead lifting about maybe 4 months and I love it. A month ago I popped a rib out while squatting so I took a couple weeks off and came back and pulled a PR of 465. I was pumped. Then 2 days ago my lifting partner pulled his PR of 500. He's about 5 ft10 215 where as I'm about 6ft 176. (I know my leverage is not helping me at all haha) we're both 20. My lock out is really strong it just seems I lack explosiveness to break inertia and get the weight off the floor. I've been working hams and glutes a lot recently because when I first started I had weak "tissue paper hamstrings". I just started pulls from deficit, anything else I should do? I want to pull 500 ASAP.

Deficits are good. Heavy shrugs twice a month are also helpful.

Get a video of you pulling somewhere around 90%. It could be a simple technical adjustment that's needed. What kind of shoes do you where?M.Ed. Ex Phys

I do need to shrug more often, but just twice a month? You think that is sufficient? I pulled on Sunday and my hams are pretty sore still but I could probably pull today and try and get a video up. I deadlift in vans, they're pretty flat and low. I think a technique adjustment will probably be beneficial as I know I tend to drive my my hips up early, I'm sure there are plenty of other things as well.
