    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.

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.
    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.

  5. I am good to go on Wednesday guys. Hoping for 470-475 @ 202, however, I think that I might be reaching a bit.

  7. 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.

  11. 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!

  15. 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.

    Versa grips are the truth good sirs. I can raw grip 405 for 4-5 raw, but versa grip 405 for 10 easy (when I could do 405 for 10), more recenly I coud raw grip 375 on racks, but with versa's I can grip up to 6 plates with ease (on racks).

    I use them primarily for shrugs now and hang snatches/cleans above a certain weight. I highly recommend them if your back can outlast your grip on certain exercises.

    Sorry for the lack of updates to the original league numbers, I'll try to get it up to par today. I gotta get a ****l spreadsheet going, because going back and forth between pages is getting old already.
