at 165 pounds my senior year of highschool (last year) i was 17 and pulled 400 for an easy 1 rep i was doing 385x3
Currently im around 175 pounds and am pulling 365x5. So i should be past that mark alil bit anyways.. I had quit doing them for awhile anyways because of knee problems. I wanted to start doing small competitions just to see how i faired, but it didnot happen. Maybe this will give ya a decent idea where u stand. Peace

Pulled 405x1 today so some of you guys were spot on with your guesses. That was definately the max today though, though I might herniate . Not quite what I wanted but was the minimum I was going for. I'll take it....for now!

I do heavy deads once a week (1-3 RM) and have made excellent gains from that in the past 6 months or so. I never go above 3 reps on heavy DL's, reason being is I get tired, and my form starts to **** the bed. Hamstring work is essential, but not so much good mornings, IMO. SLDL's from a defecit are great for helping you get the weight up off the floor (assuming you can do this with perfect form.) I currently pull 520x1 raw at around 175lbs, which puts me at 5lbs under 3xBW.

i pulled 520 raw at 215 fat and thought i was doing good.
that is a pretty good pull for anyone much more so from a 175er
good job man

I weigh about 205 and i pull about 450x1. I have a real problem with my grip. Is there anything "special" i can do to help with my grip. I think that if i had a better grip i could pull over 500.

i can hold 5 plates for a few reps now. it's catching up. haven't even used chalk yet, it's on the way. that should help drastically. i'm still using straps for sets over 3 reps. dead power has improved, got 495 for 8 last week (with straps). just gotta catch that grip up.

try doing hook grip too, it hurts like a bitch in the beginning, but that's how most of the big boys pull, i finally got it

under your two fingers, check out the picture, it HURTS when you first start up, so when you first try it, only start with 135 and work your way up, then do static hold 2xs a week till you get it, plus warm up with hook as much as you can till it hurts too bad. that's what a friend of mine(ex you know him) told me to do and it works fine. but i'm warning you, it hurts in the beginning

so, both hands are over with this grip? according to that link, you can use hook grip with over/under grip. sounds like that would give the most grip advantage. i'll try both and start working em. i've been doing over/under closed grip thinking that was the optimal way. thanks for that link brudda. points for ya

hook grip is really only for double overhand, check out any pictures of steve googins, you'll see him with a hook grip double overhand. i didnt even knwo you could do hook grip w/ over under. plus if you do hook grip with both over it's less strain and feels a lot better on the back, not as twisted

gave it a fair shake today. **** hurts, lol. got up to 225, my thumbs were not happy. switched back to my over/under and finished up the statics at 515 for 16 seconds. i figure i'll use em to work up in weight with for now until that thumb pain subsides.

I'm trying to improve my deadlift as well, right now I get 465 for 7 but my bodyweight is 235. I would like to get 600 for 6 eventually as i squat that for 9. I think my biggest issue is my form I tend to use my lower back too much intead of driving more with my legs and hips.

i've got the same problem. hips pop up too fast and damn near do a SLDL. gotta work on that somehow.

I had the same issue a while ago, but with some work on keeping my shoulders as far behind the bar as possible at the starting position, it seemed to go away.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
