From now on when I track the PR’s on the axle deadlift, I’ll be doing it in two broad categories:

a) strongman style - Wagon Wheels, with straps, just absolute brute force as much weight as I can hoist

b) raw (no straps) from the floor using standard height plates, which is more of a grip test than anything

Really good job mate, consistency and effort definitely paying off. Quality

I can’t believe we haven’t seen a video of these wagon wheel deadlifts!


#1666

Ask and you shall receive. I gotta admit - they look super cool with no plates at all, just the bare axle & wheels, but that’s only 115 pounds, lol.


#1667

I guess it’d be a silly investment to buy multiple sets just because it looks cool.

Felt fantastic today. 585 was easy. For the next few weeks I’ll divide my pulling about 50-50 between conventional barbell work off the floor vs axle deadlifts with the wagon wheels. If all goes well I may attempt 655 (conventional barbell) by year’s end.

Traveling today, did this in a hotel fitness center, hence the odd weight increments (but I was DELIGHTED to see a hotel that had a barbell, plates, and power rack in the gym). Will be back home tomorrow.

Going to be a crazy week at work so this week will probably do very modest, short sessions topping out with three singles in the low-to-mid 500’s before cranking up to a heavier workout on Saturday.
