    DL'd 500 raw on Thursday, so I hit that WAY ahead of what I thought I was going to. It wasn't a perfect lift and I am not satisfied with form, but my lower back stayed straight and I did lock it out, just not as fast as, say, 405.

    Would rack pulls help with lockout strength?

    Nice deadlift.. 500 is pretty impressive IMO

    What's your height/weight?

    In short: yes. Train the portion of the deadlift you have problems with.

    My partner got 600 about inches off the ground and couldn't lock it out. So he did rack pulls of 635 or something.

    Thanks guys.

    I'm going to focus on just strength and explosion and power until I can get 500 for a good, solid rep with perfect form.

    I don't think pin pulls will help your lockout. You'd be better off with reverse band pulls and pulls with chain.
