Separating the Men From the Boys... The Deadlift Competiton

Page 2 of 10 First 1234 ... Last

  1. in
    did 405 x 8 last spring, but knee surgery has me recovering at the moment...
    230
    age 36
    with wraps
    no cycle
    no belt
    I love snow cones
    Working on living


  2. Age: 31
    Weight this morning: 193
    Straps = yes
    belt = yes
    pull this morning = 645
    barefoot (if it matters)
    Free and clear of all "cycles" etc. - never touched the stuff

    This will be my last pull for two weeks, as I have a competition next Sat. (Oct. 2) with deadlift for reps in there...I'll post how I do later.

    How long will this run? I would love to see it run to the end of the year to push me over that 700 mark.

  3. lower back is still recovering right now how long is this going to run. If its for a few months Ill be in. 26 245 5'9" 455x5 straps. as soon as I feel good enough to hit heavy deads Ill go raw and see what my numbers are and update.

    GMG said probably at least 9 weeks. So we could have a max attempt then 3 weeks and a max attempt, 3 weeks and a max attempt. So at least that long. However I would be down to see it run through years end.

    Ya come on guys dont be scare lets see some damn deadlifts!
    Oh, version 2.0 ... gotcha. Furazadrol is still hormonal, albeit kinda weak. But he'll still get stronger than he normally would, so it stays in the hormonal league.

    Nice work man, and I love your rustic style of going barefoot. At 193 you're a facking beast.

    In the same boat with AG. Did 495 x 2 @197lbs a little while back, but my lumbar issues have had me in recovery for awhile. I'll be hitting 10 reps on DL's before I go big boy 5's & 3's.

    Ya I know Im full of them lol. But it just makes sense to put it up there because u know people will want to know. Plus now all the little guys have somewhat of an equalizing factor.

    Btw I talked to a guy I know at the fitness center and he has a camera he is willing to bring on Monday. So if I get 685 I might just have a video.
    Nice, you should post it in your log and in here.

  14. Nice posts you guys. Let's keep them coming, let's start prepping for the big lift this week or early next week. This is going to be the first of the max effort attempts. Give it your best, then spend the next two weeks preparing for the next max effort! Grit your teeth, dig deep, and pull!!!

    holy **** you're ****ing huge. i can only dream..

  16. Nice stuff man awesome lifts! I am really trying to decide if I can safely allow myself in this contest. I will just lift tomorrow and see how it feels with a little heavier weight. If it feels good I will hit heavy as I can on Saturday.

    Does anyone have a good recommendation on weight progression in warm up for a max so I don't blow my load before I get to my max? I don't have any experience with this and I know there are a lot of good recommendations with this group of guys. I was thinking I should be pulling about 405-425 since I haven't pulled heavy in a long time so say if I were going to try a max at 425 how many warm ups should I do, how long in between them and what percentage of weights as well as reps should I do for each warm up.

    Welcome guys! It seems we have our first on cycle contestant, hopefully we will fill in the league with more contestants. Mind putting what you are running, just so we have an idea (IE methyltrienalone will have a different effect on your deadlift numbers than furazabol),

    I will do a contestant and DL #'s update tonight.

    if you're simply trying for a 1RM you should have less volume on wu. 1'd do some leg presses at almost no weight to warm up knees and hams. then do 135 x 3, 225 x 3 (possibly twice depending how you feel), and 315 x 1. then just put on 405 and go. very low volume therefore not much growth stimulus but you'd set the PR.

    My best was 610 raw grip and it was before ever taking AAS or even natty test-boosters. LOL

    I did SLDL's 11 days ago and hit 415 for 10 reps. Strapped. That will have to suffice....

    I gave up on maxing out and the whole "wanna be a powerlifter" thingy after I tore my right pec 3 and 1/2 years ago. Now it's heavy weights, but for reps.

  27. Dead Lifts - 135x8, 225x8, 315x8, 365x5, 415x3 at 207 so 2 times body weight for 3 reps. all done with only gloves on to protect my purdy hands, no belt, no wraps. LOL I should have only done 6 on the 315 set and I may have gone up to 425. O now I could have gotten 5 on 415 with raps. I wasn't having a problem lifting the weight but holding on to it on the 415 set was a bitch! Considering I have done NO GRIP WORK in a very long time from my tendinitis. I have been using wraps on every pulling lift for about 6 months now. So knowing that and that I haven't been dead lifting for a while this is DAMN good stuff for me. I am definitely impressed with this lift for me.

    Yeah you guys were right about volume. I think can go heavier with less of a warm up. I meant the 8 on 135 and 225, but meant for 6 on 315 but it was so easy I just kept pulling and then was like oops put it down. Either way coolest thing is that I did not hurt my shoulder at all doing these. I was afraid I would feel some pain and then rip, but nothing of the sort. Even now the shoulder is feeling stellar.

  28. Is it just me, or do you guys find it easier to DL with chalk over gloves?

    I cant stand deadlifting with gloves, and I love deadlifting with chalk.

  30. ill join in on this...age 21, 5'10", 190 pounds,raw grip and off cycle my best ever was 390, so 390/190=2.05
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/supplement-reviews-logs/173268-repthats-logging-adamantium.html#post2832363

  31. So, my first attempt was a success. I pulled 135x8, 225x5, 315x4, 405x1, then 435x1. I attempted 465, but I ran out of gas. I think I have 465 if I went from like 375ish straight to it. We'll see in 2 more weeks. I pulled with a belt, no hormones, chalk for my grip. Finished off the deadlifts with 315x8, 315x6, 315x4, 225x6 and wrapped up my back workout with some pull ups and rows. Did a little biceps, but my tank was on empty after the deads. Felt good though, was the most I've ever pulled raw grip or off cycle for that matter. STOKED!

    Hell ya good ish man. I know how maxing can wear u out. It def whooped my ass today.

  33. Went light today due to my competition on Sat.

    315 x 8
    405 x 6
    405 x 6
    405 x 6

    All without straps or belt...just chalk and grit ;-)

  34. Nice..It isnt in my new workout but I will attempt a new max. Got me a new belt just for this competiton...LOL. We shall see. A bit under the weather today...BUT IM NOT MAKING ANY EXCUSES!!!!!

    RECOVERBRO



  35. Yeah guys I honestly think I could have gone up if I were using chalk instead of gloves, but I am not complaining on 415x3. I may order up some liquid chalk and see how my hands hold up to that. I know it sounds goofy but I try to keep my hands in good shape, not all caloused up.

    JoHNny bought a new belt and you may order some liquid chalk just for this competition. COOL.

    Well.........I ordered some Versa Gripps 2 days ago and they should be here before my next leg workout (Friday) when I usually hit up stiff-legged deadlifts.
    But when I put those Versa Gripps on........lookout!! I may have to come out of deadlifting retirement just for this competition!!!

    Man I really want a pair of those. Let me know what you think of them when they come in. If they really are superior to gloves and wraps. If so I am all over it as soon as the wife is back to work and money comes back in.

    I would love to see some Thunder Dead numbers but not if it is going to hurt you in any way.

    It won't hurt. I'm not injured in any way. Besides, "That which does not kill us, only makes us stronger."

    I simply gave up Deads years ago when I shifted more from powerlifting to a bodybuilding type of training.

    My SLDL numbers (415 X 10) should show that my lower back is plenty strong.
