i bet you'd be awesome at deads bro. especially used to carrying all that weight around from before.
10-14-2005, 03:09 PM
You may be right... I was doing 3/4 (just below knee level) deads on a smith(yea I know nothing like free) back when I started for about a year.. but I could do 2.5 times the weight my brother could do (and usually on most exercises I can only do 20-60% more then him (except triceps.. I love me my triceps. ).... pretty much all the iron I had.. near 500 pounds for 3 sets of 10.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
What really freaks me out about deads.. Is after I'm done the set, my heart begins to realize the complete drop in oxygen, and in a few moments i can literally feel my heart beat in my entire body... as It tries to catch up.. nothing else does that to me, not even squats. They scare me...
Oddly enough last night going into leg day, I was waiting for a gentlemen using the squat rack for deads... He was moving some impressive weight, (big guy, great shape, actually he looked alot like you, same bald head and outfit, perhaps taller ). I approached him, as he was unracking and I basically said good stuff, been meaning to start these soon. He said you should, but they are tough... etc.. A while later, he watched me do 10 reps of 315 pounds all the way down to the box, and made a point to come accross the room, to tell me, he can't do that. So what the hell am I waiting for.. dead here I come.
I'd like to thank you for your inspiration..

Beezl's a bad mutha****a!
Nice work man. (said as I sit here nursing an inflammed glute/lumbar from a dead mishap 2 weeks ago, lol)
I'm betting Poobah can hoist the big number..little at a time.
I have lots of respect for you PL types. My scrawny frame just screams at me when I try to go big. Does not help to have a crooked spine complete with extra lumbar vertebrate, lol.

Sick lift Beezl, and Poobah, i def know how you feel after heavy deads. I feel like i am going to be sick, but i hold my chunks, and 3 min i am back for more.

I watched the video 3 times but couldn't figure out if you went double over or under over. As everyone has said, damn nice control of the weight. I can pull some weight for my size but I do a "controlled drop." You put it down like it was a grand piano.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

Nice lift Beelze, I think you could crank out another rep at that weight easy. Go for a single some time, and don't be affraid of a belt when doing it either.

that was supposed to be a single, but it was too easy so i tried another one.Originally Posted by ryansm
i use a belt for squats when i go over 500. for deads, they just pinch too much. what does a belt really do anyway as long as form stays intact? spill the beans ol'er.

Better stability for your core. It will not do much, but any front bearing load is going to cause some rounding of your back, and a belt can help. Try it for a heavy single and see how you like it. If the belt is pinching then tighten it from the back iow wear it backwards. I personally only use it on really heavy clean pulls 300k+ (a variation of deads) regardless you are a strong bastard, hope to see you in some meets soon.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

alrighty, i'll give it a whirl this friday, hitting 605 this time. if the pec gets back to normal, i'll def be competiting soon.

thats impressive beelzebub... got a question for you, what do you squat for a single or double max, and if you arent sure of that, is it common for a person to squat or dead more weight? good job, and i think 7 plates will come far more quickly than april...
10-21-2005, 01:40 PM
doubled 515 on squat tuesday, with belt/wraps. probably single out 535ish, maybe 545 if the mood was right. from what i've seen, deads are generally stronger than squat.
10-29-2005, 02:47 AM
Awesome lift man! What's there to say that hasn't been said already? Great control, speed, form looked great.
Do you know what that song was in the vid? Sounded like something I'd definately like!
10-29-2005, 03:28 PM
Great lift! But I would strongly consider ditching the straps. Though at first it will be humbling, I've found training grip strength increases VERY quickly when done properly. Use the thick barbell, rack deads at 70% of 1 RM with a 5 second hold at the top, and my personal favorite, the captains of crush grippers.
