I’ve been struggling for the past few months with my deadlifts. After, actually, I competed at Raw Nationals in August and hit a PR of 480.
Since then, my DLs have looked like this:
October - 465
November - 440
December - 425
January - 410
And today I hit a record low of 1x365.
In August, I squatted 380. In November, I squatted 405 and right now, though I haven’t tested it, I can assume I’m at 415 or 420 on squat.
My bench has also been increasing steadily.
I’ve also been gaining weight since the competition; a gain of 10lbs, actually. And it’s not a sticking point that I can think of. I just literally cannot move the bar from the floor.
Anyone have any ideas? how could my squat be going up so well and my deadlift be dropping like crazy?
