    500 is not a strong dead lift by any measure. There were 55 year old guys opening w 500 at worlds last week...

    As a generality most guys can't pull 500+. That's pretty damn heavy for a very high percentage of the gym going population.

    Maybe I should have said 600, or maybe where you're at you see guys attempting to pull 500 all the time. I don't know.

    Either way I personally think anyone under 250lbs at any age trying to dead 500+ is impressive by any standards.

    You are correct, but what does my deadlift have to do with anything? That doesn't change the fact that a 500 lb deadlift is not considered strong. I'm a couple months from 50 broham, when put into context, 450 ain't that bad.

    And you can bet your stupid fcking circular arguments that when I recover from the Achilles tear I got at worlds, my deadlift will be north of 500 in short order...

    That context you speak of is something you should consider before you tell me my arguments are fuking circular.

    Let me guess, you failed high school debate right?

    You've done nothing this whole thread but turn and attack - rather childishly and completely ineffectively, anyone who points out that what you seem to think is so impressive, isn't.

    450 is great especially if you near 50 and have had an injury. I never said it wasn't, but you're the one arguing 500 isn't strong, but yet you say 450 isn't so bad when put into context?

    I personally think pulling 500 is strong when you put it on context that out of the millions of people that step foot inside of the gym a small percentage can dead lift 500. Fuk only a small percentage of people even do compound lifts

    Not sure where you thought my arguments were going in fuking circles either.

  7. Quoting the same post twice after having an 'ah ha' moment does nothing for your argument either.

    I was never on the debate team. I was too busy competing in every sport I could and earning my right to play a college sport.

    But, please continue with your snide and hypocritical comments.

    Was the college sport patting yourself on the back?

    Hey, you're the one that thought it was appropriate to include your finances in a thread about deadlifts,

    ON A FCKING BB'ING FORUM!

    Just sayin...

  12. I was 650 puller at one time, not sure if I could have done that even in that style. Strong is strong, that is nice for a bodybuilder. I worked out at Strong and Shapely gym for 7 years, everyone got along great, only on the forums do these arguments arise.

  13. I pulled 315 for four does that make me strong?

    Agreed and apparently nat, that is some pretty strong pulling right there. And might even be beltless.

    I pulled #315 for 4 does that make me strong?
    One or two hands??? :sic
    If it is more than you did last month, then you are stronger kiddo. Enjoy ;-)

    The term "strong" is a relative term.

  16. Question, why do you powerlifters call deadlifting "pull". He "pulled" so much weight. Just wondering.

    Multiple actually. My roommate in college was one of the top ten powerlifters in the country for his age.

    And yes it's extremely intense and inspiring.

    Because "yank" is not at all an appropriate form of pulling heavy stuff.

    The way it was splained to me years ago is, it involves "scapular retraction" and or drawing a weight towards the torso, instead of pressing it away from.

    What I'm getting at is the way he approaches the bar has nothing to do With anything. I could scream and pound my chest before I approach the bar, but if I get 2-3 red lights bc i didnt lockout my dead, no one gives a Fyck

    I am going to be honest with you, no one gives a **** if you get white lights either, except maybe your mom, girlfriend and training partners. That goes for all of us, don't take yourself too seriously. I have trained with WPO competitors and world record holders, they get up and go to work in the morning just like the rest of us and no one knows who they are.

  23. I remember my first deadlift...
