A buddy of mine has been lifting with me for the past 2 months. He is a college hockey player and is naturally built to lift; long torso short limbs probably 5’ 7"ish and weighs 205lbs.
I had him deadlift for the second time ever today and he puts up the following;
315x5,365x5,385x3. And with pretty great form. No rounding of the back and the only thing he is missing is finishing fully with his hips at the lockout.
I think thats pretty sick for the 2nd time every deadlifting. Im trying to get him to take lifting seriously but hes a hard sell. These are the rest of his best numbers so far and hes been lifting less than 2 months. Just wondering if these kind of beginner numbers are worth taking note of?
(less than 2 months training)
Squat: 275x3 Parallel (not atg)
Standing Overhead Press: 135x6
Deadlift: 365x5, 385x3
