Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

Good lift but that low back rounding is absolutely brutal. Almost scary at that type of weight.

I'd suggest repeatedly going with lower weights and focusing on much better form for quite some time. Much respect for the 3x bodyweight DL but I'm guessin' as you get higher weights, you just won't have the midline stabilization to keep stuff in order without some nagging pain/injury.

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

Kudos on the lift bro! What ill say(as mentioned earlier) is watch the rounding of the lower back.

In my opinion you didnt take enough time at the begining of the lift to set yourself for the lift,your back was rounded while you were setting your grip and even before the weight left the floor......you rushed the start and while this might not be an issue at lighter weights,it might affect your lift at the weights your pushing.

Get it right from the start...at 525lbs your pretty strong and theres potential to really go far and i wouldnt want an injury to negate your gains.

Keep on!

Im not lifting for a competition...A) there was no hitching and B) once I or most people stand up and lock out the lift, its over. There is a higher risk of injury trying to control the lift back to the ground than the actual movement of a deadlift. If I were to compete at powerlifting that is one thing, But Im not and have no interest in doing so

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

I echo Eric's post.

There is a lot of benefit to performing the eccentric portion of the DL. If you only perform half of the rep, you miss out on those gains.

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

Your a strong cat...can't cheat on a deadlift.
These guys are right, but like someone said I'm sure you don't do that all the time. Very impressive...

Re: New Deadlift PR at 525

You are all enablers....when he slips a disc be sure to post that while slipping a disc he only did it once on his max weight not on all of his sets.....

...and also, no one is saying to do a "negative" on the way down, simply control the weight as you return it to earth. You know, like actual powerlifters who do it all the time and miraculously manage to not get hurt.....

Really?? Then you definitely need to practice your DL more if you can't put the weight down without hurting yourself. Re-pressurize at the top, then reverse the movement. The only reason to drop the bar is if you lose your grip....

You're worried about injury b/c that lift was bad, thus trying to reverse it would hurt you. If you kept your back flat and used your hips, and set up the lift properly instead of trying to jerk if off the floor, then you'd have a good movement to reverse to safely set the bar back down.

So:

1. Setup the lift properly. Your form was bad before your hands were on the bar. Look at 00:30 - you back is rounded as you bend down to grab the bar, and then it gets more rounded once you immediately start lifting it at 00:31.

2. Get your chest up and drop your hips. You at 1/4 squat at the most, there's barely any leg drive. You're humping the bar up with your back.

3. Dang, you're going to need more than a belt to fix your back - check out 00:34/35 when you stand up - total opposite back curve of what you want. Scary! 00:36-38 isn't "opening the hips" but rather it's un-curving your back. Not good.

Yeah, I know this is a 1RM, but unless you want it to be your last 1RM you need to train it like all the rest with proper form. If you can't do it with good form then it doesn't count in my book - I've bailed on many lifts because I knew I couldn't do it *right*, not because I couldn't do it.
