I absolutely am undermining your point though. The deadlift is probably the most structurally dependent lift and I think anybody here would agree with that.
I can conservatively pull 495lbs, and I doubt many here would claim that I look like I lift (at sub 200lbs bodyweight). I remember also reading several, months or years back, in which you were bragging about your initial gain, but at that time you were also just returning from a long break (that time, I think, because you had become lazy).
It seems like, in the long run, you haven’t made much progress at all, despite how apt you are to put others down for their relatively slow progress initially.
OP, let this be a lesson that consistency trumps all, or else you are just a person on a message board saying things. Thanks!
I’m just going to call you right the hell out. So you got a 2.5 deadlift in half a year’s training time. Where are you now? 5 years in?
I know I’ve seen a post by you before, so I just want to highlight that this is the last person who should be discussing consistency, proper training, etc.
I’m only recently back in the gym after breaking my clavicle playing rugby. Doesn’t really undermine my point that he should have achieved more, and could have with consistency.[/quote]
