14 Set Deadlift, New PR


#1

So today I hit my new PR of 470, but the thing I cant believe is how i could last do many damn sets. ill give you a rundown...

135-10
225-5
275-3
275-3
315-2
345-1
375-1
405-1
every set till here I had really great explosive speed
415-1
425-1
435-1
445-1*pr
455-1*pr
470-1(red lights cuz I hitched)

I felt great, I think part of it was cuz I was cuzzin up a storm and I drank a BANG! while
I lifted

I know 470 is a warm up to most, but for only deadlifting for 10 months, and in that time Ive went from getting 225x2 to this, I feel accomplished, this was all raw too, just a belt.

lol “cuzzing up a storm”

you should save the money you are gonna spend on a bench shirt and instead buy a dictionary, books, maybe some private tutoring and join a library.

but anyway… solid deadlift! perhaps with less warm ups next time you can hit nearer 500 which would be a great lift at your age.

whats your bodyweight?


#3

you are gonna be strong as hell in 2-3 years if you stick with it.


#4

nice work man, keep attacking the deadlift and you will turn yourself into a monster years down the road.


#5

lol i forgot to change cussing. ill probably stop warming up so much soon, but i like doin alot of sets, i just hit a max today


#6

my bodyweight is 215


#7

Maybe start a training log? Youve made 3 or 4 posts about your PR’s…just sayin.


#8

Nice deadlift, for your age especially. Keep it up.


#9

were these for speed deadlifts?

jk… Great lift, congrats


#10

lol i would never do a training log. my other lifts are lacking too much, but im working on it


#11

You still need to warm up thoroughly, but cut down on the sets and make bigger jumps closer to your max.


#12

I second what Ghost is saying, try warming up with a bigger weight, i.e like 225 and try to move up by 10% of your 1RM until you hit about 70% then move by 5%. Other than that damn good for 10 months, and damn good for doing deadlifts, most people avoid them like the plague.

Oh and try to stay at 2 reps+, even if you have to adjust your grip and rest for 5-10’s seconds it’s still achieving 2 reps for that set.
