    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.

    Glad to have you here bud.

    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 xcell spreadsheet going, because going back and forth between pages is getting old already.

    I know that feeling, it's like you're pinching the bar for dear life cause the BB is at your finger tips. Seriously though, I've used my share of traditional long/short wraps and various hooks and NOTHING grips like the Versa.

    Raw gripping for reps is a different beast then raw gripping for singles.

    When i go for a max which was not my intention last night I will try one of the other warm ups from in here and see where I end up. Probably start with 5 minutes on eliptical for a general warm up, and then a few leg press, then the quick 3 at 225, and 1 at 315 then go for 445 and see if I can pull it while still fresh. Grip was already wearing on those. I did a double over hand grip all the way up through 315 and then switched to over under at 365.

    Does that sound sufficient to warm up to you all?

    I think I may have to try to get a belt before then. I am all about daily lifting without one but when trying to max. Might as well take precautions.

    Personally, I would take 225 into more reps, maybe 8 and then 5 at 315. With dead lifts (and squats for that matter), it doesn't take much to get the blood flowing and get warm because its such a compound lift, but what does not warm up as fast as your temperature seems to, are how many motor units your active muscles are recruiting.

    As much as warming up for the bench for instance, is about prepping the shoulder stability, the joints involved, getting some blood flow to tighten up the muscle along with the O2 feed, the real culprit of warming up is getting your body to recruit more & more motor units as you progress.

    The warmer you are the better. The statement is true within itself when we're talking about the previously mentioned, blood flow, oxygen circulation, joints & stablizers, but what's going to determine your level of strength, is how many motor units you've recruited along the way. During a moderate warm up such as 315, pushing it to that 4th-5th rep where you're quasi-struggling is when your body will start to signal the recruitment of additional motor units. Motor units respond to stress and though 315 for a single might be enough to send blood down your traps, lumbar, glutes & hams, if it's a relatively easy lift, it won't do much to maximally recruit motor units.

    Have you ever had a workout where you're suddenly at your strongest point mid-workout? In those instances, you most likely never properly warmed up enough to maximally recruit your motor units. I can't quantify an exact/perfect warm up, but you do want it to be moderately difficult. I get staying fresh for a max pull, but there's a thin line between staying fresh and inadequately recruiting the maximal amount of motor units. If you're able to hit 445 for a few, then hitting 315 for a few more reps won't exhaust you that detrimentally.
