I dont have any good bars at the moment, just shity wallmart bars.
Im looking into getting a deadlift bar because
1, I want to pull heavier numbers
2, I would like to be used to the bar before competition
3, I would like to know where I stand before a meet, as far as the weight I would lift.
Thanks for the input guys!
Honestly, unless you are a DL technique wizard, I would suprised if a great bar will add more than 3-5% to your pull. You will get way more out of a good-fitting suit than a good bar.
That said, why don’t try a good bar for yourself. I don’t know where you are in FL, but there are few gyms down there that would have one. I think Tommy Fannon’s gym in Tampa has a DL bar. I would bet Orlando Barbell and Southside (in FTL I think.) also have DL bars. [/quote]
A 3-5% Pr on 600+lbs would be enough for me.
I would like to get a deadlift suit but I have no idea about the sizeing or what kind of suit to get. I have also heard some people pull less in a suit. So Im just not going to bother.
I was looking at tampa barbell on the internet earlier, it sounds like the gym is in his basement and that its only open for a few hours 3 days a week (which dont fit my schedule) If I found out otherwise I would be there tho.
