Car Deadlift Numbers

I plan on entering a contest and this is one of the events…I figure it starts light, and as you pull up it gets heavier with increasing height, so it might mimic a reverse band deadlift of some sort.

Basically I’m wondring if I have any hope of gettign a single rep, the event lists the weight as 750 lbs, my best dead from the floor is 545, I’ve maxed a farmers deadlift at 600, and Ive done a hand thigh lift with 765.

The best advice I can give you is try to get a hold of the show promoter/runner. See if you train for a session using his deadlift apparatus. Car deadlifts vary so much it’s hard to say anything more than that.
