    this was my first time to try to max out dl. I'm fairly happy, I know 200 is lytew8t to most here but it's a fucking accomplishment for me.

    if you can't get it off the floor, lower the weight dingus

    use this rep scheme for your 1rm

    • 1x5 @ 50%
    • 1x3 @ 60%
    • 1x2 @ 70%
    • 1x1 @ 80%
    • 1x1 @ 90%
    • 1x1 @ 95%
    • 1x1 @ 100% or new PR.

    Congrats! I know that feeling all too well. I just hit my personal PR recently of 300lbs. Best feeling in the world. Especially since I had to use every plate I had (I workout at home over the summer). I can't wait till the day I warm up with 300 and go for a PR in the 400's. Keep it up and 300 will come much sooner than you think(it did for me).

    I'm counting on it continuing to rise.

    Keep in mind I learned to DL just under 3 months ago, and started out with 30 lbs :noes:

    After looking at your progress pics I assumed you were much stronger.

    Good job though.

    You punk bitch. 20lbs is not that great of a difference, get your ass back in the gym next week and pull that shit off the floor. Or I'll drive up there and kick you in the nuts.

    Why would I do a lift at 90% and 95% before attempting a new 1RM? That's a great way to wear yourself out and expend a lot of energy, leading to a failed max attempt.

    I think thats the recomended progression for a max effort day, but not for a true 1rm

    Yeah, on ME days I'll do a lot of heavy work up to a 1RM, but if I'm going for a real attempt it looks a lot different.

    Well if you couldn't move 275, I'd set that as my current goal. Next time I wanted to attempt it I'd do something like

    135x whatever warmup
    155x5
    185x3
    225x3 (or 1)
    275x1

    Then if you hit that go up 5-10lbs until you can't anymore.

    Bigger jumps and less volume leading up to the max attempt as compared to the progression listed earlier

    For example here's the last time I did ME DL's before hurting my hamstring:

    But I just decided to go for a new PR there because I was feeling good. I was gonna go in next week and try 550 without all the other shit but thats on hold for now.

    well yer, the rep scheme was for a me sq/dl day, not for a true max attempt....

    if I was going for a true max attempt, make the jumps a lot bigger, but I wouldn't be doing that regularly.

    if i were going for that 315 1RM, i woulda done 135x6-8, 225x1-2, 1RM.

    edit: maybe 275x1

    I dunno I don't use belts.

    Don't worry about trying to control the weight on the way down. Unless of course your gym tends to frown upon slamming weights down.

    usually have my belt around the largest part of my gut, it should be tight enough that when you expend your belly to its maximum that its really tight....so loose enough to be able to extend your belly, but when you've extended your belly it should be fucking tight.

    and like cavefish, don't control it on the way down, in the same light, don't go throwing it like a med ball

    throw the weights through the mirror, unless, of course, your gym tends to frown upon throwing weights through mirrors.
