    I dunno, I wear Merrill "barefoot" shoes. Same basic idea as the vibrams and its not that hard, you just have to be aware of it in your initial setup to the bar.

    Both. Proper footwear has not only increased my poundages, but also kept my healthy by keeping proper technique. For conventional, it's not as big of a deal of to put all of your weight on the outside of the foot, but it is essential for sumo.

    They're coming along for sure, I haven't done a true "grind it out" Max but I imagine they're close to the training Max.

    I like doing it on occasion, it's a good way to gage your improvements IMO. Plus when you get a big lift its a good ego boost. Give it a shot man, you may like what ya see!

    Squat 285x3- I started doing my deads and squats in just my sock and weights/form have improved.
    Trap bar deads 425x3
    Straight bar 335x3. Form is pretty good on all.

    That's kinda what I was assuming as far as 1RM goes. Once you start getting to the 5 plate area is when the most seemingly benign technical aspects become huge. Most squats at huge weights are lost before the lift even starts, which is during the unrack. Most completely halfass this part without knowing how important proper tracking in the thighs, upper back/chest, and even grip are to a successful 1RM.

    Your form bro isn't the "best." but it is workable. Honestly if you work your back muscles more - and core along with some traps. You will find more stability with your pull - I would Also lighten the weight after your 1rep sets and rep out 3x8 with a more manageable weight to instill good form thru out.

    Definitely need to work on form and I agree with a few extra sets with moderate reps would help instill proper form also

    Sure would - don't forget the use of chains and bands - DL is an explosive lift - those tools are made for that purpose

    Right off the bat! I wasn't planning on doing deads at all, just kinda threw it in since I had a bit of energy left after my workout. 415 and 425 felt good....guess the tank just ran out after that tho because 450 only moved about 3 inches off the floor before I couldn't hold my form any more and dropped the bar.

    I gotcha yeah I would say you probably ran out of gas. I always try to do my reads early in the workout to make sure I have energy for them. But I would have to say some deads with bands could help the lift off the floor for sure

    I agree. 450 is a little on the optimistic side for me. My current 1RM is 435, and that was a tad dicey as I lost momentum at the top.

    450 is attainable if your current 1RM is 435. I would say do some band work for the next 3-4 weeks and try again about a week or 2 after that

    My best work is in the AM, too. I started doing more squats and more SLDL which helped increase my deads.
