    Ripped 505 off the floor last night @ 166.

    My buddy told me it probably wouldn't count in comp. (or rather would be up to the judges discretion) but he thought I may have had a slight down-up motion somewhere amidst my lift. I didn't notice it cuz I thought it went up easy as hell, maybe a lil at the top before lockout is what he meant tho.

    In any case, he called me a "back lifter" and said I should start pulling SLDL to get my hams stronger (and I know they suck, so I agree).

    Then again, I also need to take it w/ a grain of salt (kinda) since he's close to 200 and pulls 515-520.

    So my questions/concerns:
    Lockout strength: Focus on rack pulls
    Hams etc: SLDL

    Correct?

    Also, I have XTEND and AMP. Since I'm too fucking lazy to read into some shit, what's the general consensus about the stuff? I'm following the directions on XTEND, 3-4 scoops pre/during workout. It also says to take 1 scoop right after. Should I throw that bitch into my PWO shake?

    AMP: any certain times I should take this? I took 2 this morning before class. I'm thinking 2 before lifting..amirite?

    Hollar back yo.

    reverse band pulls and deadlifting with chain > rack pulls for lockout work. Get your glutes firing, too.

    Chain I can't afford IMO..how much are bands / how do I set em up. Our gym isn't exactly PL-friendly.

    Kind of both. I made a thread about it earlier that I am not sure whether or not I want to compete since my other lifts, IMO, suck.

    I wasn't even going to DL yesterday but it's one of those things that I do whenever I don't want to.

    xtend take as they reccomend, hopefully it tastes ok with your PWO.
    AMP; take about 45 mins before ur workout, less if you're completely on an empty stomach

    Why did he say your deadlift may not be legal? I understand (I think) what you have to do for bench and squats but what makes a legal deadlift?

    When its not one smooth, continuous motion. People can also hitch while deadlifting.

    He said there was some "down" motion in my upward lift. Like I said, I didn't notice it, but more than likely it was just prior to lockout.

    if you pull conventional you can just stand on the bad.
    Just get two light bands
    you cna do rack pulls with bands too, those may be better than just a rack pull.

    Lat work can help the lockout
    If oyu do not do one leg work you should.

    Lifting since 2004 but never been 100% into it.

    Barely pulled 400 in Summer of 2006 and then stopped deadlifting for a while.
