    135 x 10
    225 x 6
    315 x 6
    365 x 5
    405 x 1 or 2

    i do legs on mon
    i do back on thursday and i dead lift first every thursday.

    some days instead of going to 405 ill do like 3 sets of 6-8 with 315 or 2 sets of 5 with 365.

    overall, my deadlift has stopped increasing. rack pulls at my gym really dont do much for me because the lowest hole in the power rack is pretty far above ground level. advice on bringing my dead lift to the next level?


    edit - i guess my major weakness is the first half of the lift. starting from the ground.

    You are pulling too heavy too often, stop deadlifting heavy.

    For this, stand on something to elevate your feet.


    I also agree with the others above me.

    Stand on plates and pull from the ground, or use 35lb plates on the bar. Low box squats will help too. I am not built to deadlift at all, these things helped me. I never got anything out of rack pulls except very sore. Pulling against bands and/or chains helped me quite a bit though. Regardless, racks/accomodating resistance aren't for the bottom of the lift. Stand on something and pull.

    are you lifting everything over 300 with a belt?


    I'd say go beltless and focus on keeping your core tight with the heavier weights... If the belt helps you get an extra 30lbs up then lessen the weight and get your core stronger.

    Look at what he is doing.. Pulling heavy alot, it's not very suprising at all, deadlift will rape you faster than any other lift. I have had alot of experience with pulling heavy or trying to pull heavy all the time and getting fucked over from it. Certain people can pull it off, I for one can not.

    365 is 90% of his max assuming he pulls around 405, thats allot of weight think % for anyone to be pulling all the time.

    I pull about 200 more pounds than he does and RARELY go over 400 in the deadlift, maybe once a month.

    Wow, that is very good info. Thanks. I could already tell that the DL is probably the most taxing lift I do consistently. My progress has been stopped for awhile, probably because I lift fairly heavy every week.
