    haven't done deads in a couple months...most Ive done is 365lbs and that was last winter...I lost 20lbs over the summer, and have gained almost 10lbs back.

    Today I got 375lbs about 6 inches off the ground, but that was it...maybe next time :bigthumb:

    I got my new bench PR last night. 5x180. Maybe that's because I didn't do deadlift or squat last night and that was my first exercise. :dunno:

    5'4", 153lbs

    start working some rack pulls... if you can get the weight off the ground, work the rest of the rep

    sure

    I usually do two weeks rack pulls, one week deads

    but if the rest of your pull gets too strong, you might not be able to get the weight off the ground. mix it up a bit and see what works for you

    right below the knee level. *thats what a man told me that used to compete and pulled 600's on a 220lb body so im sure his advice is worthy*:wavey:

    rack pulls are done off the safety pins; preferably a powerrack. you set the pins so its below knee level height. put the bar on top of the pins with whatever weight. this exercise would help you work on your last half of the deadlift procedure.

    if your having problems with getting the bar off the floor, get a 2-4" platform and deadlift off that.

    what would be good for improving sumo deadlifts? The biggest sticking point is getting it off the floor as opposed to above the knees in a traditional deadlift.

    Thanks. It was informative.

    When are you out of the newbie stage so that you can't deadlift every week though? Certain poundage? How you feel after deadlifting? I dunno, it doesn't seem clear cut.

    I guess I'll start doing speed squats and pull throughs.

    Figures. How far is Orlando from Tallahasse? I've been looking at some internships for the summer and there might be some openings out of state

    It is going to differ from person to person. Some people can pull heavy every week and make gains. Others will get burnt out rather quickly. Only person that can determine how they affect you is yourself through trial and error
