405 with Coan/Phillipi Deadlift Routine

Today I completed the Coan/Phillipi Deadlift Routine. Instead of 10 weeks I did it accelerated. Every 5th day was one week in the program. 45 days is how long the program lasted. I skipped week 9 and went to week 10 after 8. I felt ready for 405.

I smashed the fuck out of 405! I started the program with a 340 deadlift max. The program is awesome. I felt like I needed to tell some people who understand what it feels like to smash a PR. I work with a bunch of sedentary(thanks Pro. X) people…

http://www.ontariostrongman.ca/Resources/training/coanphildead.html is what I followed with very few modifications.

Me:
5’7’’ ~180lbs.
On to 495 next.

Nice job man.

great lifting.

It’s a great program, I went from 365 to 425 last semester.

Does it work well for sumo?

Thanks guys.

Yeah, when I get back from vacation I’m going to run it again.

I feel like I need to work on my back width for the next month and a half(my traps have blown up though).

I don’t see how it wouldn’t work for sumo. But I’ve never lifted sumo…

Sumo = pretty much all hips
Conventional = low back and hamstrings

Coan Assistance work = low back and hamstrings

I don’t think it would work that well tbh.

I personally could see Smolov working quite well for sumo deadlifts…

Good work man. I to used the routine to hit my first 405 deadlift. and my first raw 495 deadlift

Just curious, did you do any kind of squat maintenance? If not did your squat suffer at all after you were done with the program?

I kept my regular routine going. A 4 day split. I switched to front squat, and in that time I moved up to a 205 front squat for reps…

Hmm. I want to try this. Gonna run it from a 440 to 505.

One of my training partner’s used it with some 40 lb success pulling sumo, but he did modify the assistance work slightly (pendlay rows and chinups I believe).

In my experience, yes, it works wonders for sumo. As a result I will have to disagree with Hanley, no disrespect meant. Last summer C/P took my deadlift from 340 to 419 in a meet, and that was basing percentages off my current 1rm and increasing it gradually each week. On a side note I am excited because I’m going to run this program as it was written basing percentages off of a desired 1rm of 485 instead of my current 455 (calculated).

…2 years…

I was bored and I searched for coan phillipi deadlift, and I didn’t notice the date until you posted. Make of that what you will.

Awesome. I’m fast approaching a 700lb pull these days so finding this thread again is pretty funny.

Congratulations man! I just smashed one last week myself.

That Coan/Phillipi Routine is a beast. I started it a couple of times and couldn’t finish it. I did add twenty pounds to my PR with the 5/3/1 Routine but it was a beast as well. My hats to anyone who can survive the Coan/Phillipi Routine.

absolutely love this program. I pull sumo and its been working great for me. Hopefully it’ll bring me to an American Record in the 132 class. about 20 pounds to go
