How to Grind a Deadlift


"It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."

Mark Twain




And that, children, is how its done.




I don't even look at the weight, I look at the effort. This guy took it to the limit. I really like that.



That was a monumental effort.


In his mind he had one option... complete the lift. That's what they are talking about when they say commit to the lift.


12 second concentric. Beautiful. This makes me think I might have left a little in the tank with my last PR attempt :).






Fantastic dead lift makes me cant wait for next meet


This looks like it took about as long as it took me to do my max deadlift on Friday. I felt pretty bad about it - good to know people see it as a good thing!


this is why the deadlift is the best lift


Fuck man! I didn't even look at the timer. That puts in perceptive more.

I should watch this vid before every heavy dead session!! :slightly_smiling:


He CLEARLY should lower the weight and work on form.


Josh Bryant would approve... he really Committed to the Pull

In all seriousness though, that was a real nice pull




If that guy would've grinded out 100 pounds, I think I would have gotten behind him, beautiful effort!


superb... inspirational


Killer lift, never seen someone hit that sticking point without letting go. Way to hold it!!!
