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


    So I decided to start the Deadlift competition that we've all been talking about in the DB row competition thread.

    So here are the rules, there are going to be two classes, the first is going to be raw grip, the second is strapped grip. There will also be two leagues, one for those on cycle and one for those off cycle... just to be fair. Both grip classes will be in both leagues. I expect everyone that enters to be safe, know how to deadlift properly, and to wear a belt (I don't want this thread to be responsible for people trying to throw up 495 when they are 160 lbs and have them wind up in traction).

    So with that, please enter your age, height, and weight, whether you are on or off cycle, your current 1 rep max deadlift, and your max deadlift/weight ratio. IE 425(deadlift)/203 (weight) = 2.09 for me. 675/231=2.96 for Tomahawk88, etc.

    I don't expect videos from people, you're on your own honor. Videos will be required for claims of superhuman feats... IE: 160lbs person deadlifting 585 lbs.

    LETS SEE WHO CAN MOVE SOME WEIGHT!

    I am in to watch this one and may even put something up in the bracket if my shoulder holds up.
    204 lbs and 445 was my best max in highschool. Last time I was DL regularly I got 425x3 reps. Maybe just maybe I can try to beat that over the next 6-8 weeks. How long is this bad boy going?

    By the way GMG it is awesome someone finally just put up another challenge on their own. I told some other guys they were welcome to but being the organizer of one of these takes a little time. So I can only do one at a time.

    Good to see some friends already dropping in!

    It's going as long as we want it to. I figure that we probably need 2-3 weeks to work up to what a true max would be, then another 2-3 week break to recover from the max effort, then 2-3 more weeks to try and beat the original max effort... So that's 6-9 weeks. I could really care less what everyone lifts, I just wan to see people smashing their own PR's!!! I think of these competitions as more of a self competition anyway... I mean, Tomahawk beat me before he started if I was gonna compete with the guy!

    So, let's all deadlift our max within the next two weeks (I'll let everyone get a warmup in).

    WOOT!!!! Im stoked, i love me some deadlifts. Quick question though. Is it easier to do deadlifts or rackpulls. I was thinking deads because you get to really use your legs.
    I got 365 rack pull for 3 monday night then went for 405 and was a no go.HMM. Maybe Im just a bitch ass!!!!

    I'm really surprised and kinda stoked to see that everyone is lifting natty at the moment. The on cycle people will be harder to compete with each other as different compounds effect people differently. Hopefully nobody's gonna be taking fluoxymesterone before they lift... this isn't that serious.

    I think what we should also do is calculate how many times it is ur body weight. Like say mine would be 675/228=2.96. Oh so close to that glorious 3!

    I JUST came off cycle so if anything my number will go down lol. Plus I just lost the only person who can compete with me on deadlifts that I know.

    That's a great idea. would be a much more definitive show of actual strength in relation to each other. I'll add it when I get some more time to use my calculator and enter all the info in.

    BTW guys, if you are lifting without a belt you are on your own in regards to your own safety. Like I said before, I recommend everyone use a belt for a one rep max. I don't want to feel responsible for someone getting a hernia.

    Ya because obviously someone who is 170 isnt going to have sh1t on me as far as pure deadlift number. But when I get down to 200 mine is going to be nasty

    I figured Id suggest adding this now because a bunch of entries come in so u dont have to do the calculations yourself. And have people put a certain stamp on their posts that include PRs so u can easily spot them like Kleen did in his thread.

    You heard the man.

    Calculate your own deadlift/bodyweight ratio, I'll do the calculations for those of you who have already posted.

    Also make sure to stamp your posts with PR's in them as I will be updating the leader-boards once a day, and some threads can get out of control at times.

    is there an age component in this? Since I am an elder statesman at 34, does that add into the equation?

    no gear no straps no belt

    500/218 = 2.29

    never taken a cycle before and I'm 21 1/2 year old
    Bench - 355
    Squat - 405

    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.

    Well yea, that's the whole point of the two leagues. It's not really fair to be juiced up and lifting in comparison to guys who aren't. Plus Katanadrol has the "tren" compound in it. You're gonna get redonkulously stronger than you have ever been before. Stacked with Hdrol it should be wicked. Just be careful of prolactin.

    Of course not, I'd say that the contest is open for entries for a week or so. So throw up your stats and you're in.
