#1

Finally a new record after like a month!
going for 800+ march 19th dekalb meet.


#2

thats intense, hurts my back just watching it. pretty awesome stuff


#3

X2.

you are only a few years of some injury free training from putting some dents in the current DL records.

good luck and stay strong.


#4

Crazy dude

What are your other lifts at?


#5

not as good lol...here recent: the squats from right before deadlifting today.


#6

How much can you do without straps?


#7

motherfucker, apart from the squat those are all long term goals for me. you may have used straps for the deadlift, but they dont magically strengthen everything else! respect brah


#8

That is a massively impressive deadlift. When did you start training?


#9

3rd grade, but most deadlift right before entering highschool...my grip is strong tho,and usually use hook grip for max attempts, never missed a dl because grip. If grip was my weak link I wouldn't be using straps lol


#10

That is an amazing deadlift! I'll be at the Dekalb meet too. Are you lifting on Saturday or Sunday? You should check out the gym I train at if you're anywhere nearby, we'd love to have a freaky deadlifter. It's called monster garage gym, it's a hardcore / warehouse type powerlifting gym. See you at the meet.


#11

Awesome lifts buddy! I am just as impressed by the Overhead press to be honest. Also, that Squat was super fast - you def had more in you! Keep pushing and stay injury free. Stick around - its cool to have strong mofo-s around.

What has your training been like up to this point? Westside / standard split? Do share - yo uare one strong young bull!


#12

At my university gym, most kids your age can't even touch a 275 deadlift, let alone push-press it. Stay strong, man, those lifts are insane.

Do you bench?


#13

I have no routine or anything, But like to train lower body/low back-MON,WED, SAT...but latley I been trying to cut it back to 2x a week to give knees more rest. and I usually do upper body tuesday and/or thursday.


#14

No program? Well you need to look through your deadlift training logs, find a pattern, and turn it into a program and sell that shit :stuck_out_tongue:

Awesome pull man. I would like to break 700 this year on deadlift, but I will be geared, and heavier.

You are going for 800 in march? Be sure to post a video of the meet.
Not because I doubt you, I just want to see.


#15

i'm amazed that someone can get so strong training is a gym that has a tv right by the power rack. keep up the good work


#16

I lift at Frantz gym as well.


#17

That's a monster pull, man.

Awesome.


#18

thats fucking insane. you look like you dont even workout though wtf?


#19
