First time poster, but long time lurker here.
I’ve decided to devote my lifting life around working towards, and hopefully eventually achieving a 600 pound deadlift.
I think lifting 600 off the ground would make me strong. Not the strongest, for sure, but strong. I think a 600 deadlift would be a good indicator of a certain level of pure strength.
Right now, I’m 6’0, 175 pounds, and after not lifting much for a couple of years, I did a 265 pound deadlift, with some left in the tank. (Conventional style, clean-grip with no hook). Two years back, I was 220 pounds, and although I focused more on the squat, I deadlifted 400 pounds, without really training for the deadlift. (I did some deadlifts, but it was always secondary to the squat).
Now I want to bite the bullet and deadlift 600 pounds. I think I’ll be strong with a 600 deadlift.
What do you guys (and girls) think?
