    Deadlifts... who does em?

    The squat thread was a hit so lets try some DL's.

    I do them but have to cycle on and off of them. L-5 (DDD & FJS) will only hold up with them for so long.

    When I cycle off of them, I switch to Good Mornings. They are a lot easier with my back problems.

    I would prefer to stay with the DLs but it's just not possible. The doc said I can't DL or squat anymore because of my back issues.

    I still do the squats but had to compromise on the DLs.

    I know we have some powerlifters out there that tear em up.

    I'm on a hiatus... Tore a ligament in my right elbow on the radius on a 600 attempt and from repeated brutal speed work with bands. The bands really beat you up. Missed the 600. Current PR is 570.

    Ha, I was hoping you would throw a number up.

    To bad about the injury. They always suck ass.

    Still, nice PR though.

    Love deadlifting. Always have, always will. Looking for 650 in my next meet.

    I loved doing them, my personal best is 655 from the floor, but I do them every other week.

    Re: Deadlifts... who does em?

    I don't do deads any longer.(at my advanced age!) I love rack pulls, however. I'm not a power lifter by any means and find that the heavier weight I can load on the bar is fantastic for my traps and entire upper back.
    I've grown up some.

    Re: Deadlifts... who does em?

    Well, I'm not going to say I love DL's because they make me want to puke and/or passout on occasion. I have not done them in a few months but am getting ready to put them back into my rotation. My number is 455lb max, but I'm no PL not even close. My goal for next year is to get it to 500 w/o killing myself lol

    Re: Deadlifts... who does em?

    I've been doing them weekly as well. I used to not care for them much but now I look forward to Thursdays.. I am with df though they do make me wanna pass out and puke on occasion, lol!

    I don't have big numbers, usually my last 2sets is 405x 6 or 4 if I'm that worn out, kind of depends on the day....... I wanna get to doing rep of 500 by summer..
    Stay modivated! You only have this life to make it happen!

    Re: Deadlifts... who does em?

    Im just starting to incorporate them again. I don't think I will be going too heavy because of a back injury that kept me out of the game for 6 months. I do enjoy them though.

    I said looking for it, not expecting it. You saw my 560 a few months ago and you know I had 30-40 left in the tank. My second attempt will be 615, so depending on how that feels, I'll shoot for 650.
