Hit 500 lbs. on Deadlift


#1

I feel like my balls weigh a couple ounces more each now. I figured I'd break my PR today since I got 475 last week for a double breaking old pr by one rep. I'm back up to 199 lbs and wanted to get 500 before I hit 200 lbs, so I just went for it. I figured screw it, I'll get 500. Locked that sucker out, growled a victorious "FUCK YEAH" and dropped the weight on the floor sending out a shockwave through the gym that vaporized any curlbro in a 2 mile radius. Felt fucking awesome.

Question: How much does using a belt add on to one's deadlift % wise? Thinking of purchasing one and was wondering how much extra I could expect to add on once I learn how to use it properly.

Congrats on the PR. If you dont use a belt now and pulled 5, dont worry about using one.


#3

Did you not lock it out the same as this one?


#4

It was all ass... which isn't surprising since ass is your best asset.


#5

haha that was at the end of a session when I was screwing around with sumos I think. 500 was locked out.

And yes to the other poster it was mostly ass


#6

Good job Accipiter, you foiled my shitting on your accomplishment.

Way to go on the 500 #er too.

#13

#14

No way! I just got 500 on my deadlift too!

:wink:


#15

Nice! Hope to get there this year.


#16

at 200 its a solid lift!


#17

You fucking better brah. I'm in the mood for mirin some Swedish Viking Pullz.

OP, great job man. Funny, you pulled it sumo with no belt as well. Copycat! haha


#18

The 500 wasn't sumo, that vid posted was 405, over the summer. I think I'm about 190 in that vid. The 500 pull was standard, but no belt!


#19

Don't you know that doing 'close grip deads' works the inner part of the glutes?

Get with it, bro.

Ah okay. Props either way!
