First Time Pulling 405


#1

First time ever deadlifting 405. I know it's with a trap bar but it's a big accomplishment for me so i figured I'd share!

Oh my.

I really wanted to say something constructive, but I’m not sure what.

How about this: Your scream should be the least of your concerns at this point.

You are obviously making a good effort, but you are going to get hurt if you don’t fix your form and bouncing in a hurry.

The first thing I thought of when I saw that was DeiselWeasel.

definitely you’re right. This was done after 3 sets of 385 for more reps and without the bounce at the bottom. The whole point was really just to see if i could pull 400+. I’m sure i could do it with better form and will take a video next tuesday with a better camera and camera angle.

Let it go. He was a bit over enthusiastic and posted a video before he was ready. The effort was there, so hopefully he takes the time to read these forums and the articles on this site and comes back with a real 405 dl with decent form in a couple months or so.

candid gym videos are by far the best!

I’d like to point out that a year ago, He was barely pulling 185. We train at the same gym, so I can actually attest to the amazing overall progress he’s made (I’d say at LEAST 15 lbs of solid muscle,… and he’s about 6’3 to boot). And to be completely frank, I egged him on to go for 405, he was already freaking toasted and getting ready to go home -lol.
