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

Page 6 of 13 First ... 45678 ... Last

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  5. Well I love the POWER lol. Plus I just get a mind fack when it comes to lifting for reps. Then it REALLY has to be about competition to push me.

    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?

  9. $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.

    Id love to squat and DL in a garage and just blast music and yell like a facking wild animal lol. I dont get any of the free test boosting eye candy where I go (I think it is hilarious they have a squity eyed middle finger smiley) Although I did see a HOTTIE leaving as I was going into the FC. Hair all wet looking like she just got out the shower I tried not to stare but Im pretty sure I did

    I agree, I wish I could do those two exercises without any distractions from the weights.

    I figure I would need an adjustable bench, a squat rack, an olympic bar with at least 8 plates, then a set of 35's, 25's, 10's, and 5's. After that I would just need the entire rack of dumbells and I would be set.

    Except... it's like 3 grand cheaper to just pay 17 bucks a month at a gym around the corner for the foreseeable future.. Stupid economics.

    $17! Damn. You guys have great prices! I'm on the low end with $29 a month and that's because the pay off the entire year at once, so I get a bulk pay discount. I think the average around here is $36/mo.

    I've had my membership since I was 13 and the 24 hour fitness was called "family fitness centers". From what I remember 24 hour bought my contract from them when it sold back in the day and I have kept it ever since, hence my ridiculously low monthly price. What is awesome is I have the membership that gives me access to all 24 hour locations. Ironically since there are now 24 hour active and 24 hour sport gyms... and a crazy one I saw when I was in Houston that was unlike any 24 hour I've ever seen, I have access to ones my friends can't use and they pay about 28 a month.

    425lbs (+20) @ 180lbs = 2.36

    Day 6 of my Katana cycle.

    No belt, no gloves, no ipod. Just chalk. I actually i warmed up with gloves, its just easier to grip bare handed.

  19. I want to deadlift now lol.

    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.
    315x20 is Top Notch!! That's some strongman stuff there

    my garage is where i do all my lifts...love it. no one in my way or complaining. if i need to turn the music up thats what i do.

  22. Oh yeah Tom, I think you asked what Martial Arts I train in. It is an ecclectic martial art and is a combination of 3 specific styles with the best of others thrown in. The school is called Bushi Ban, and it is a mix of Bushi Do Karate, Bando an Indian martial art, and Burmese kick boxing which is like Muy Thai but they also allow head buts, and joint locks.

    We have the Fighter's Elite which is the MMA portion of the school and Bushi Ban is heavily competitive in both Amateur and Professional MMA in Texas and surrounding states. My instructor and I are working on something so I can start training some of the guys and helping them with their diets for fights and what not too. Since I am a little to old to be training now to get in the ring I might as well help create a few champions.
