Yeah.
I think that's the point.
Belts help strengthen the core.

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

Sean, not to stray too far from the point here, but could you recommend some good weightlifting belts for a novice/intermediate? I'm just starting to get to weights where a belt might help.

I like my Inzer forever lever belt.
I use the 4" wide 13mm thick belt, and it is quite stiff. The lever makes it very versatile - as opposed to a prong belt. Unlike a prong belt, you don't have to crank the belt against a rack in order to get the belt tight enough so that a prong fits in the proper hole. You just measure it, set it once, and forget about it - every time you fasten it, it fits you perfectly. Also, when you release the lever, it gives you enough breathing room, that you don't need to take your belt off between sets, if you don't want to.
Since you are new, you may want to try the 10mm - which should be fine for you... it would be fine for me too, but I just went with the 13mm, since that is the max my PL Fed allows.

here's a vid of a world record.. notice the lift is smooth up and hands on the bar all the way to the ground... if you want examples might as well look at the best...

Yeah, mine's like 130lbs less than yours. And looking at it, I round a little and let the bar get a little forward. But, I'm willing to hear any suggestions or criticisms.

For one IMO that really wasn't max effort, went up too easy

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

For goodness sake, I can practically smell the passive aggressiveness oozing from your response. Got it. You think everyone commenting is weak and all of their max efforts look like yours. These vids are family friendly and all that other jazz...

Here is a video of me doing 606 a year ago at a USAPL meet:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPpN7...ature=youtu.be

Here is me rack pulling 645 or 655 off a 6 inch box:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcQp5...eature=channel

I tried 665 after that but when i felt the curvature of my back slip too far I didn't say screw it and push through, even though I could have locked it out. I was already concerned about curvature from the one before it so I stopped.

Are they perfect? Of course not, they are 95-100% of my max at the time!! The second is as ugly as I would ever go.....of course it was prob 99.9% of my max at the time without just getting sloppy and silly (crazy rounding and hitching)
Are they dangerous? Prob depends on who you are....not for me
Is my back perfectly straight? No, there is noticable thoracic bending. Also, my back is not "straight" when simply standing in place. It's called upper back muscularity...you should try and build some.
Are they better than your effort? Yes
Why?

1) There is a huuuuuge difference between some thoracic bending and lumbar bending, which you had a great deal of
2) Notive how I was able to calmly lower the bar to earth without my head, back, and knees exploding? weeeeeiiiiird
3)Notice that the first lift got one red, two whites instead of three whites...
4) You will also notice how right before I go I suck in a bunch of air, lock my back, and drop my butt.....you did not do that, ESPECIALLY THE SECOND ONE
5) The most important difference is that I acknowledge my imperfections and try to work on them....you deny them and challenge and question anyone who has criticized you on this whole thread.


Ok, enjoy ripping on my imperfect deadlifts....I'll enjoy being super strong and working on my shortcomings
