Re: Max Effort Deadlift

It looked like warmups til you hit 425lbs, which still looked solid and went up smoothly. Keep doing what you're doing.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

Solid pull. What are you doing to have increased your deadlift by so much?

The last heavy set of 5 I did before this was at 345lbs, so the 315 wasn't entirely necessary. But that 425lbs was a little slower coming off the ground than the others.

And it seems like, from the responses, that I could have pulled more. But, I personally felt that my form would have started going south pretty fast. And since I exceeded my goal by 25lbs, I'm not feeling too bad about going higher.

Well, as originally posted, I began with my first workout being 1x5 at 215lbs. I increased the weight by 10lbs a workout all the way up to 315lbs, and then made 5lbs jumps. I got up to 340lbs and recorded my form. I was less than thrilled, so I reset the weight back to 295lbs and made 5lbs jumps from there up to 345lbs.

This Wednesday, since I knew I was going to being attempting a max effort Friday, I deloaded to 275lbs (80%) and did 2x5. Friday I did my usual warm up, and instead of working sets, I just did singles.

Now I'm moving on to the Texas Method and am going to use Wendler's 5/3/1 set up for my deadlifts, since I'm only going to do them once a week. And I just started conditioning again last week. I doubt that helped, but it sure didn't hurt.

And one more thing. I put on about 30lbs since the beginning of the year. I'm pretty sure that had something to do with it as well.

Only 345x5 and you pulled 425x1? Thats a pretty huge jump. My 395x5 got me a 455x1 deadlift.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

Very, very nice. That 425 was slow breaking off the floor, but it still turned out to be a great lift.
