Hey guys.. just thought I'd say that today i finally deadlifted 405...i know this isn't much compared to a lot of what people are lifting back here but I slowly got back into them after a back injury...hopefully this number will continue to grow!!!!
congrats. 4 plates is a great milestone.
Always pay attention to maintaining the strictest form possible. This may mean slower poundage increases but in the long run it is worth it.
If you can stay focused 495 will be conquered next!!!
Thanks a lot guys, it felt great to get that weight up finally. Form was not textbook, but was done pretty well. No hitching or rounding out the back, but took me a second or too to get it through the sticking point.
Hey Beez, when did you get through the 405 point? Age 12?
Great job man. 405 is a big number
hardly, i remember not too long ago being in awe of the guys that could dead 405. couldn't have been more than 2-3 years ago. once you get that form down, your dead just takes off on it's on. the thing that has helped mine the most is heavy ATG squats and good mornings.Originally Posted by MiKeY ReSp
The goatee has to help too. That thing just screams bad ass
the goattee is a counter balance to keep me from toppling over backwards.
My low back hurts just reading the thread!!! LOL
(But today it really does hurt)
Yep, I was one of those guys a few weeks ago I think my recent introduction of high rep lunges and heavier front squatting might have contributed as well, but who knows. As for good mornings, a restful night of sleep has always helped my deadlift too. It's a ***** to do them on day im feeling down. J/K...I'm actually going to give some :good: a try this week. They just scare the **** out of me as it looks like they can really **** your back up if you do them wrong. I'm going to try to get one of the trainers in my gym to show me how to do them properly instead of learning the hard way.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
. Yep, mine is pretty sore too, although the traps are reallllllyyy on fire. I'm sure my back will be screaming after the good mornings!Originally Posted by glg
Congrats man!! Thats definately a big milestone. I just hit 405 probably 4 months ago and last week I got 515, so stick with it and Im sure you'll be continue to pack on the pounds. I completely agree that form is critical. If your form sucks, an injury will definately get you eventually.Originally Posted by MiKeY ReSp
I'd break my neck with good mornings of that size. You would call mine Good Nights or Someonecallthe****ingmedicsfor the loveofGod.
Thanks a lot Beelz! I'm really going to start incorporating them into my split now...That site seems to have a lot of good information lying around!Originally Posted by Beelzebub
of course it does, i'm an admin there
he misspelled "fairy" as "admin" .. pay him no mindOriginally Posted by Beelzebub
and congrats man! that really is a milestone in my opinion .. stick with it you'll pull 495 before you know it! .. great job buddy
Thanks a lot Glen, I've been trying for quite a while to get that damn bar up lol. But hard work finally paid off! LOL funny you said that, because that was the first thing that came to mind. Immediately after I deadlifted it I was like ..."Damn, I want to pull 5 plates" lol. I always find myself saying things of these sort when when I set a PR. But I guess thats the whole point and fun of doing it, isn't it?Originally Posted by glenihan
I'm sure it will not be too far away before you pull 600 yourself there big guy. By the looks of your training and diet I'm sure it will come faster than you expect. And you sure are one strong dude to be moving that kind of weight and staying that lean as well! I think most of the people in the iron game wouldn't mind be shredded and strong:bb:
Thanks a lot everyone again for the encouragement here guys. I have found so much useful information and even moral support here. Good job AM!!:bruce3:
Damn good job man. Im still working on getting that.
I remember how stoked i was when i when i hit 405 in the summer, then 415 with a hitch in september. Now that i've got my form down, and have been doing deeper squats, I hit 480 just last week.Originally Posted by ugab37
keep up the awesome work
Congrats dude. I just hit 405 myself, and only after a little less then a year n a half of training! Keep it up!!
