Thought some people might be interested in one of my goals - to pull 500 before may. The unusual thing about this attempt is that I will only be deadlifting once every 6 weeks (3 times total) until may. I also wont be using any of the typical westside variations to improve deadlift. Instead, I will be olympic lifting 3-4 times per week.
Over the 3 months from Thanksgiving until now I improved my deadlift from 425 to 465 with this style, and I will need to improve at approximately the same rate if I want to reach my goal.
I’m 19 5’10 and 174. Here’s a picture of Saturday’s deadlift. (I was angry because someone was curling in the squat rack.)
Any and all advice/comments/criticism are appreciated.
EDIT: Since so many people seem to be in the same boat - chasing that 500 deadlift - we could make this thread a mini journal for us. Post your age, weight, height, current best deadlift, favorite teletubby, and a picture if you like!
