    i been deadlifting for about 3-4 months now and im stuck at my 1rm weight for the past month. i was curious if doing heavier sets off the pins would help my goal to lift more weight on the regular deadlift off the ground?

    if so, are there any articles roaming around on how to prepare for a safety pin deadlift?

    Rack pulls help quite a bit. I was rack pulling 365lbs. A month later I deadlifted 365 easily. Your body needs to get used to carrying a heavier load. It may help the most at the lock out but you'll get residual improvements all the way down too.

    sounds like your problem is you're not eating enough or your training sucks....

    Yeah, it depends on where you are stuck dude, The rack pulls especially above the knees are a good way to build confidence.
    Pin pu7lls go like this
    Set bar on desired pin
    Do dl, as you would in that position

    the difficult part is getting it off the ground more than bringing it up.

    i tried it one time using the 45lb plates standing on those. but for my next back day, how many inches should i be above off the ground and how many percent of the weight of my max should i be aiming for?

    for the safety pins, where do you set them at? knee level? quad?


    and your correct peal, im currently cutting :hsd:

    I need to start rack pulling. I missed 435 on the lockout. Bitch flew up off the floor suprisingly easy and then stalled knee level :(

    I couldn't even do 365 for 1 last time I tried rack pulls :(
