Max Effort Deadlift

So I just did a max effort on my deadlift today. There was/is some talk about form degradation when approaching ones' "true" one rep max.

The form isn't text book, I know, but it is 25lbs more than what I was hoping for. And to give an idea of where I started at; my first deadlift workout was 1x5 at 215 at the end of December. And since I started lifting (consistently) a 400lbs was deadlift was my goal. All in all, I'm pretty proud of it. My back doesn't feel any worse than my last heavy set of five, so I'll take it.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

That's not your max


Form looked solid. I think you could pull 335.

Is that a typo because he pulled 425...

Looked good for a 1 rep test.

Whoops, I didn't finish watching the video. I thought the 315# was it.

The 425 looked good too.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

Well crap on a stick. Now I feel like I short changed myself. But it's cool, because I exceeded my goal.

Next goal, 500lbs deadlift; though I still need to rep 300lbs on the squat. I'll try that one next week.

Just keep doing whatever you're doing, it's working so far.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

Didn't look to bad to me but my internet/computer made that video kind fo jumpy.

My major concern was that weak sauce music you were trying to deadlift to....luckily you threw on Metallica at the end and they saved the day for you......good stuff,

I wish I had control over the music, but it is better than the crap they play at my work at night; I'm a bouncer.
I did have a Tool mix to listen to on the way there though, so I'm sure that helped. And I pulled my socks up as high as I could; that easily added another 10lbs to the lift.

Great pull. Maybe just a slight rounding, and for a max lift, pretty solid. I'm jealous.

Re: Max Effort Deadlift

Good lifts. Your form is pretty well dialled in so just keep increasing the weight!
