    lol, I get wanting to go raw. What kind of belt did you get? My belt is so quality I've actually got a hoof sticking out the side. It's a lasagna of leather.

    Lol good job johnny.

    I actually saw and talked to a guy today at the FC who had a good deadlift. He did 626 for a single. Talked to him some and found out he only deadlifts once a month though. So I doubt I will ever deadlift with him. I might switch it up and only deadlift every other week.

    I have done well from deadlifting less often. I use the westside system so, I tend to rotate exercises everly week. Two lower body days, two upper body days. One max effort day and one speed day for each. So I do, deads from the floor on speed day with 50-60% plus bands to develop speed. But on max effort days I usually do a squat or squat variation to a max. Then a heavy deadlift variation, usually block, or rack pulls, rotated with defecit pulls or goodmornings, I probably don't pull heavy deads from the floor but one time every 6-8 weeks.

    Deadlifts
    Warmup I had 90 lbs plus the sled on leg press and did like 50 reps to warm my hips up going deep then widening my stance out and going deaper to get as loos and as much blood into the areas.
    225x8 1800
    315x6 1890
    425x3 1275 this tied an old PR
    435x2 870
    315x20 6300 Man that was awesome! I went for 425x3 and got it with much trouble. I mean it was a hard pull but not that bad, I figured I had more in me. I got the 3rd one up just above my knees and it pulled me back down. I rested about 3 minutes stripping the bar to 315 and strapping up to do a max rep set. I did not think I would get ANYWHERE NEAR 20 REPS WITH THAT WEIGHT.

    Badass with the 315 for 20 reps. I know 405 is a rough rep out for me.

    According to my 1RM calculator that puts you at around 463.25 for a max deadlift.

    You're closing in on that 500 lbs. big Kleen!!!!

    For real. Friday's deadlifts of 435 X 12 was a rough one for me. But that was after some 400+ lb. SLDL's for 10 reps. Just wanted to see what regular deads felt like after all these years.

    Yep that's about right. Well I actually felt like roaring and pounding my chest then getting noodle legs. The last 2 I rested for 1 second and maybe 2 in the down position to twist the wraps tighter with out re-gripping, but once I got started and close to 20 I really wanted it.

    Nice that is a new goal and considering some recent from changes I am pulling easier now. I know I will be able to hit 500 in the not to distant future.

    Yeah I would love to see what the Thunderous one can do when fresh in about the 6-8 range. I know you don't like going to low in reps but I bet fresh you can rep 500.

    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.
    Chris, warmup for max's, I love to do trips (3's). A sampling would be:

    135 - 10
    225 - 3
    315 - 3
    405 - 3
    Then Max.

    I'd like to get in on this. I know in the previous challenges, its been difficult since my workouts are tailored to cutting and I've been doing full bodies for a few months now.

    Best I've done is 505@205 'on' and with belt, no wraps. Right now I'm taking fish oil, a fat burner, and ASGT prework, thats it. I'm sittin at 196ish, gonna shoot for 455 and work from there. I may have to strap, we'll see. I've got a partner any may video this so y'all can see me in 'beast' mode

    Well, I promised an update from my contest.

    Bar weight was 475#

    I was the last competitor in my weight class (under 200#), so all I had to do was enough to maintain my first place position. The guy before me did 14 reps, so I did 16 reps and called it quits. I had plenty more in the tank, and felt like I could have done 30 easy. No need to show off and waste my energy with stones still left to go.

    Overall I got 1st place. I will post pictures this afternoon.

    DH

    Thought I would include the link from the local paper that covered the event...I have one picture in the article. Its the last one of the overhead log lift - I got 7 reps.

    Congratulations are in order drivehard!!


    So this was a strongman competition. Even sweeter. I thought you were competing in a powerlifting competition.

    I can't wait to see those videos bro. I love strongman competitions.

    Nice. Looks like the average here is about 400#'s, some in the 500# club and two in the 600# club.

    Oh snap, how'd I miss that. Also, I think there are quite a few under 200lbs guys liftig 2.0-2.5 relative to bodyweight.

    That's when you know someone is strong. Lifting 2.0 to 2.5 relative to bodyweight.

    Even my big ass is doing that much after all these years. Makes me feel good.

    Old Quote from page 4:

    Now it's been many years since I did conventional deads so I was surprised to hit 435 X 12 reps!! Much recognition goes deservedly to those Versa Gripps. Once you're strapped on, that grip ain't coming loose!!

    So on a 1RM calculator I checked and 435 X 12 reps is supposed to equate to a 591.6 lb. deadlift. Not bad after all these years of not deadlifting. Looks like I'll have to include them more often. At least once a month

    I want that 3 to relative body weight and 700 on the bar.

    Also dont get caught up too much in 1 rm calculators. My 405 for 17 says I should be able to get 730

    Such a beast. So is this week the week we are supposed to max? If so I have a plan for this week. I think I was supposed to try to max on DL this week. I have a pull workout Thursday, will be depleted too so I am going to do a mixed upper body day instead. Friday I will start my carb up and then Saturday when I go to the gym I will start with Deads, and then move to some leg press to completely smash my legs into submission.

    Perhaps I will do my dead lifts, get my max done then lower the weight and do another Rep Out. After that have a go at doing centuries on the leg press. That sounds like a hell of a workout doesn’t it?

    Hell ya mrkleen! What Ben and I would used to do is do our heavy set or max then do a rep out with 405. So one could win the max out(me) and the other could possibly win the rep out(Ben). But then the FC employees started bitching about "slammin" weights. So we stopped doing that but I might have to bring it back.

    My best so far is 2.54 BW. Not that impressive among the numbers here, but at my L.A. Fitness family gym, it was outrageous.

    Oh, I don't put that much trust in them. But I'm also not considering doing max-singles anytime soon.

    I was somewhat pleased to do 435 X 12 after hitting up heavy SLDL's. And it was after many years of not even doing conventional deadlifts.
    I love doing somewhat moderate to high reps. Just got hooked on bodybuilding type training I guess.

    Now that I have gotten started with them I may just build myself a platform and do them in the garage if my little love affair continues. I don't wan't people coming up bothering me. Of course I would tell them they had a whole lot of other stuff to fix before worrying about me making noise. Luckily I am at a 10 a month gym where they basically have the attitude you pay 10$ you get access to the gym that is all we do for you unless you want to buy training. So even if someone complained they would tell them what I was told once. You only pay $10 a month if you don't like the service you get for $10 a month feel free to cancel your membership. Lets be honest they make more money off of gym members who don't go than the ones actually going and complaining. At $10 a month who cancels... LOL

    Oh yeah cool thing, my instructor told me yesterday that since they are moving the Dojo I can have whatever flooring they don't use in the new spot to put in my garage. He gets the nice 3/4 inch commercial stuff too. SO I will have to use that for rolling and what not maybe an Outdoor DL platform... I do have a concreted section of my back yard. HMMM Decisions....

    Ya the only people that have complained to me r fitness center employees but I think they just wanted to feel important and do something for a change lol. They said someone came and complained to them at the front. If u have a problem with me say something to my face. I dont get it. And man Im jealous of a $10 a month gym lol. The only place worth going to here is $30 a month. Not outrageous but free is so much better.

    Very nice Im a little jealous of u. Although I would have to have buy way too many plates lol. What MA do u practice btw?

    $10 gym pass is nuts!

    I wished I could Squat & DL in my garage. There's something barbaric and hardcore about that, that turns me on. At the other specturm, I do appreciate the variety I get at a commerical mega-gym and the occasional free test boost eye candy.
