T Nation

Deadlift


#1

As most of you know I suffered a broken back last Dec. thanks to rowing and had to take a lot of time off training anything that put stress on my back, ie. squats, deadlifts.

Well last night I was able to reach one of my goals in deadlift which was 4x45 per side, or 405. Haha and of course I was wearing my T-Nation shirt when I did it.

I used my shell-toe shoes since they are flat bottomed rather than the nike shox I normally use. I think it may have helped get the lift up. Oh also I made it without and straps or anything like that.

Congrats man on meeting your goal.

You set a great example, and a great comeback story.

Keep on lifting.

Four plates is 405. But nice job. Overcoming all obstacles, that's what T-men do.

You know at my gym we have three different bars: One lighter and not as thick bar, then one that I assume is an olympic bar, then "Texas Power" bars. All three weigh different amounts as being bored one night while waiting for equipment I weighed them.

The Texas Power bar is thick and weighs 45lbs. I def. like the thicker bars for all the core lifts. I know the lightweight olympic bar weighs 30lbs and no clue what that skinner crappy one weighs.

Edit. ment to clear up that I know that 9x45 is 405 lol. My bad, studying for finals has fried my brain.

Yah,

and 4plates and a 45 bar = 405......

everytime. But still a nice job.

Except at my gym that has 45 pound plates, 20 kg plates and 25 kg plates and they all look the same unless you look really closely.
