    no doubt. 10lbs difference in a max feels like no difference. are you conventional or sumo?

    Nice pull...

    You should give sumo a shot, glen. Feels much better on the joints and still torches the back (IMO).

    I do the opposite, and I am right handed but for some reason that hand always gives up..I have pulled a 400 1RM, but I know I could have gotten more if it weren't for these ****in hands

    Grats Glen.. that's is alot of weight.



    I've just begun to throw my gloves away and work on grip strength... With out hooks or straps, I would not be able to lift that sort of weight.

    i gotcha. i stuck to conventional up until 6 bills, then the **** just hurt too much. if you start feeling any aches and pains during conventionals, might want to consider sumos. like kwyck said, they still fry your back, it's just a lot safer. read a report recently where conventionals and sumos were studied and the findings were sumo used 21% less energy than conventionals thereby having greater body-mechanical advantages. i can dig it up if ya'll are interested. pretty interesting study.

    I don't doubt it... Your basically taking anywhere from a few inches to 6+ plus off your total stroke... depending on your hieght and foot position.

    Check out how short this stroke is... And the impecable form, and beauty I might add.

    http://www.irongame.com/videos/KaraB...01lbDL@165.mpg

    For those that don't know.. that's Kara, deadlifting 501 pounds at a body weight of 165.

    The top pulls are all conventional though... Bolton, Magnussen, Frank, etc. I think only one guy has pulled over 900 sumo.

    I am stronger conventional, but sumo is easier on my back.

    Beelze I'd like to see that study if you have time. When switching did your poundages decrease until you got used to the new form, or was it pretty much take off and go?
