Nice pull. This is a legitimate question, so please don’t think I’m talking shit: why are you wearing what you are?

if you have never seen someone deadlift a max with a rounded upper back I am surprised. I have to admit that was a nice and clean pull. I have not been in a meet yet but as long as the lower back stays tight then the upper can round a bit to pull. the shoulders will pull forward on max attempts, a few heay [ullers even advise not to pull the shoulder blades back ( if you do you legnthen the pulling distance) but I am am amatuer so i could be wrong. to Me it was a solid lift and for the BW damn good.

Why was I wearing what, high socks? I wear those to lessen the impact of the bar on my shins.

Who was that directed at…? Serious question cos I didn’t see anyone mention the Konstanov style of deadlifting at all in this thread, although it is pretty much how Max pulls.

DW, as I said on the thread that popped up on Fortified Iron this week, congratulations and a great pull. That’s everyone well and truly shut up now.

Great job DW, keep it up! Now I feel like doing DL!

Got to give props where props are due… good job Max!

love the our lady peace music in the background…

good lift!

Thanks, guys.

Did you add in the weight of the clamps? When you get 3X bodyweight I think that means your badass enough to legitimately care about tiny stuff like that.

DANG!!! NICE Pull Dude!

Well done, mate. Technique has improved loads since ~2 years ago, and so has the weight :slight_smile:
