There’s been a discussion going on in several threads regarding reaching a 600 pound deadlift. There’s a handful of us on the forum chasing 600 so, I thought I’d throw this thread together for those interested in a friendly race or whatever. I know Hanley’s going after 600. Tom63 says 600 is going down real soon. And pushharder just broke 500. Anyway, if you’re interested in posting here, feel free.
I wasn’t sure where I stood with my 1RM, so maxed tonight. Here’s what went down:
Conventional DL from the floor
The 475 went up easy so I decided to go with 525. The first try went up to mid shin before I lost it. The second attempt barely broke the floor. I didn’t want to end with a failed attempt, so I dropped weight and tried for 500, which I have hit before. Got that to just below my knees, but after the two fails, I didn’t have the energy to grind out the lockout. After that I was done for the night.
Well, not a great outing, but whatever. I still feel I can hit 600 by year’s end.
