794 Deadlift at 197

Not sure how many actually look through the training logs but just pulled 794 today. Unofficially 23 lbs over the #2 drug tested 198 deadlift on the world. Still 32 lbs off Jesse Norris’s record. Couldn’t be happier with it. Been 3 years since a deadlift pr. Video is on my ig, had trouble linking it recently.


Jesus man, that’s incredible!


That is awesome!

How do I find you on IG?

Vincent pachuta - that’ll get you there

Just watched it. Great lift. The lock out looked tough. But the first part flew.
800lb will fall soon. Really soon.

Yea. It feels slow going up and the way my knees lock I need to have some momentum going over it to lock and stay up otherwise it can pull me forward.

Four times bodyweight deadlift is a pretty exclusive club, especially for someone around 200lbs.


You sir are strong.
Love seeing a bar bend.

Great work! Nice grip!

What’s next? How long does it take to recover from a huge lift like that? Or I guess, how long until you can deadlift heavy heavy again?

3 years is a long time to be in “The Dead Zone” of no PRs. What got things moving again?

I’ll be pulling mid 600s next week most likely. I think what got things moving again was snatch grip conventional on a stiff bar and regular conventional. Taking time away from heavy squat didn’t hurt either.
