I pulled with straps on for the first time since May today, I use a double-pronated grip. 380lbs went up easily and I pulled 405lbs, although my lower back did not feel as tight as it should have been.
My goal is to get to 500 by next june, is that reasonable? I'll get a vid on here next week. Although I wanted to know -- should I stick with conventional deads and try to improve my form/get 405lbs for reps -- or can I do deadlift variations and still improve my conventional deads?
