    An 18" deadlift is usually just below the knees. A lot of strongman competitions have 18" deadlift events and most strongmen will know what their 18" deadlift is.

    I guess what I imagined and it got me thinking about is holding above maximal weights...sort of like walking out above maximal weights with squats...except with a little more movement sense there is some pull.

    To think I used to metal fabricate and have my inches off...

  5. Well, I think the heights work a few ways for me.
    I get overload and really used to pulling heavy (or my maxes) without using the entire ROM, so I am not getting taxed from a long pull yet getting a few reps and or sets at above 90%+.
    I also get used to hitting or starting without any momentum the areas right around where the bar will transition to start to move past the knees.
    9" center is a standard from floor pull. So I will also try to work down to that.
    Quite a bit of heavy or max DL's are in the head too, so if I keep visually seeing how much I have on the bar and it is not intimidating looking, then the rest is just hard work.
    I don't go much over/higher 15" however, since I don't get much carryover from floor after that.
    It is another reason I also use deficits, since then I get a long ROM and work off the floor. So when I do go to floor, it feels like a partial.

    Got a few vids of this but have to figure how to upload from my PMB file. They are changing updates on that dumb thing weekly and I am pretty computer cro-magnon when it comes to this.
    Speaking of cro magnon, how come they pronounce that cro maynyehn???
    Back felt good, quite recovered from Monday's mishagosh.
    Got some pretty good red grapes a the grocer and some pickled herring. Love that stuff after a W/O for some reason. Hmmmmmm....!

    Weeeeeeeeek End..........! Yeeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaaaa...........!

  14. Where are you from PB?

  15. Ugh no weekend for me yet. Just a few more hours...

    Another q, unless I missed it I don't think you ever mentioned in your log what your deadlift is. Juging by your workouts, it wouldn't surprise me if you've pulled 600 recently.

    So what is it?

    My PR is #605 for 2 singles gym lifts @ 54yo and drug free, however, never on platform, so just a gym/youtube lift.
    PLing comps were kinda in the back alleys when I got into it and my presses were always horrid compared to others so I guess that is why I shied away too. With my age and work schedule nowadays, I almost don't care about trying to find one either. Who knows, I have entertained the idea more of late with new found enthusiasm and from watching some of you kids bust ass.
    First and foremost however is, I just love putting my ass into the ground trying to get beat up training.

    You are absolutely right.
    Got to get some of these weekend work days out of my schedule, but I have not nixed the idea completely.

    Really did not feel like gyming today at all. Tired and sore some in the shoulders. Felt like sissy man without binky.
    Slept like a baby. Woke up every 2 hours with a load in my pants!!! HAHAHAHA I always wanted to write that. Have no idea why today. Maybe 'cause I feel like shatzen.
    Long 6 day week this week, so I will play by ear on intensity as I go this week.
    Work seems to get in the way of my fitness. WTF!?!?!? Owned

    Hypers BW x12x2 Slow return
    +#10 x12


    Well, this ended up pretty good since, when I started into gym, I was dragging ass some. SO I knew I had to get it way up and shake the sand out of my canary yellow panties.
    Anyway, sorta saw the pink elephant on the second 1" def set of 7, so I nixed a 3rd (reading Rodja's new log about some common sense at times, which I know I lack) and went for straight weight and a deeper pull. Jeebus that set felt like it lasted 10 mins. on 6th reps stopped at top tp take a few breaths to cheerlead myself to get the 7th.

    After that, it was quite hilarious how light the squats felt. I was going to just do some speed x3's with the #225 and chains, but I pushed it some.

    On another note. I got a hearing aid for my rt ear. (I know grampie man) I have pretty bad tinnitus in that one from a gun shot 30 years ago maybe and apparently some connections to lifting!? Anyway, went to my reg doc first and he said I was most likely a candidate for TRT replacement cream. I have been seriously thinking about it for a while now. I just know once you go T, you're pretty much on it for life.

    My low back is nice and pumped and feels like a girder is sewn in there.

    I did vid some of this but I am still working on the PMB file transfer to boobtube.

    It's all that clanging noise all those plates you use make when they hit each other, plus chains.

    Nice workout man. Solid session. Making me yearn to get back into the gym (well, that plus some pics I saw of gyms outfitted with EFS equipment).

    Even if my 7 rep sets, are considered xfit to some.
