670x3 Deadlift 181 Class Lifter


#1

This is too impressive not to share. This kid's going to break the all time tested record soon.


#2

Crazy especially how relatively small he is. Dunno how someone could get to that sort of lifting without being an absolute behemoth


#3

This is insane. That technique looks really strange but obviously it's working for him!


#4

Jesus


#5

It's like a semi-sumo rounded back RDL... If someone was using form like that and asked me for advice at the gym I'd be giving a ton of pointers... but wow he makes it work to say the least!


#6

Ed Coan pulled "semi-sumo" sometimes too... i might try it out now


#7

Yeah, semi sumo with a rounded upper back.


#8

I'm not knocking the guy in the OP vid, as I said he makes it work but even Ed Coan used a lot more leg drive and didn't round his back to this degree.

Needless to say, an impressive lift.


#9

You're correct about him not using much leg drive. I've competed against brett before and he has a very strong lower back. He has another video where he does 585 deficit sldl for reps.


#10

Big weight. I hope his back holds out.


#11

The first rep looked acceptable. The last two though... With this weight maintaining form through a whole set is unlikely for a relatively inexperienced lifter
