I set a goal a year back to hit a 500 pound deadlift before my birthday (today). Yesterday was the day I tried it, and I was very happy to pull it off. Another goal I had was to hit 3x bodyweight, so after hitting 500 I tried 515 and was extremely happy to get that one. The deadlift is definitely my favorite lift. I hit 405x10 the week before so according to rep calulators I should have hit these numbers easy, but I am much better pulling for reps so I was a little skeptical. I got motivated when Thor put up his 3x bodyweight pull so I thought I would post mine up as well.
Here is the video of 515. It is 5 plates, but 2 of the bumper plates are 25 kg (55 pounds).
After that I hit a pr on RDL’s of 425x6. I did 405 the time before, but after pulling 515 this felt light as shit in my hands. It’s funny how that works, because I thought I would be spent.
I know most people aren’t as interested in watching reps, but here is the 405x10 from last week. I will have to come up with some new goals for this year.
