heavy lockouts are definitely a real confidence booster.

The hook grip has been great for me too. I never worry about that anymore, and it feels so much more natural to carry the load in symmetrical arms.

Re: Approaching Triple Body Weight

Hey Matt, after she just missed the lockout on 315, she waved down and started to build back up. Right now she is on track to hit 310 in competition on November 22, which will give her the Canadian Deadlift Record. Her last session saw her do an EASY 280 from the floor, plus another 3 reps of 280 from 7-8" blocks. Her romanian deadlifts have shot up to 215x3.

Two more sessions - then the competition!

Re: Approaching Triple Body Weight

Thanks for updating this for me Anthony. I just haven't had time to get in here and check.

Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes. Training is going well and I feel fantastic. Only 2 weeks to go. I'm nervous already...

Re: Approaching Triple Body Weight

Just thought I'd post a quick update...

On Saturday I pulled 141 kg at the Falmouth, NS Powelifting meet and officially broke the Canadian Deadlift record in the 48 kg weight class.

I went for 142.5 kg, locked it out, however the judges must have seen the slightest hitch and called a bad lift.

Still, it feels pretty darned good to have that record.
