He’ll never realize his potential in the deadlift if he does higher reps, he should never go over 5 reps and should really only ever do singles.
i hope you’re not serious, but if you are… believe me, derek knows his potential… he does a lot of low rep training, he also does a lot of high rep training… when he does stuff like this, its usually him just trying to challenge himself… take a look at a lot of his videos, he has his training videos and then he has his challenge videos, like doing 11 clean and presses with a 310lb log, etc. Also, he does a lot of high rep supplemental exercises to build a higher pain threshold… the dude isn’t human, he’s a new breed haha… and also one of the most humble guys in the world[/quote]
No, I was attempting to capture the hopefully fecetious(sp) spirit of previous posts that were stating that he needed to lose the straps, stop bouncing, etc. Apparently I missed. Also, I was giving Captain Zero shit, he caught it.
