After seeing the progress of some of the people in the 'Join the quest for 405lb deadlift, I thought I would start a thread about 495lb deadlift.

To start, I've last tested at a 435 sumo 3 months ago. I've been focusing hard on squats for the past 3 months, but I need a change of pace so I'm going to start doing some more pulls. If my body can take it, I'm going to do a 1:1 ration of ME Squats to Deads. I'll keep posting mini goals (i.e. 4wheels+quarter, 4wheels+35, etc)

And best of luck to those who would like to join me.

just got my first 5 plate pull this tuesday. i decided to just go for the 500 though seeing as it's only a couple 2.5's. It felt good, no vid unfortunately. It was quick off the floor but felt like it took forever to lock out. Good luck on your goals!

Rules...

No straps (this is a PL forum after-all). No suit. Wraps allowed (tried them, never could figure out why people like to use them on pulls). Chalk to you hearts desire.

Most of the chicks that visit this particular subforum probably wouldn't warm up with 300....

Nice pull
My best so far is 435, only progressed like 10 lbs in 8 months. However my squat and bench have gone up.

I'm in. I've done deads probably less than 20 times in my life but feel like I'm fairly good at 'em naturally. Did 425lbs yesterday and feel like I'm good for 445-ish. My goal is 5-hundo by spring while weighing no more than 185lbs. Anybody up for some friendly competition?

I'm in, I did 435lbs 2 weeks ago and so I decided I may try for 455lbs and I didn't get it. It could be because I always test my deadlift at the end of my workout but oh well. I want to get 495lbs by 2011.

I'm in for sure. I pull more in sumo but haven't done it in a while. I just like conventional more for some reason.

I am in, the best I have done at the moment is 465 conventional. I am in the process of giving sumo pulling a serious run though so we will see what happens with that.

In. Did 200kg a while ago. Trying to get the squat up to 200kg mainly but find I don't need to train DL a lot for it to go up. Hope can get 5 hundro by Jan 2011, that'd be magnificent lol

I will join in on this thread. I currently have a conventional dl of 200kg(440lbs). However, I have recently switched to pulling sumo and managed a 190kg a few weeks ago. I have a PL meet coming up in 2 weeks and hopefully I will pull sumo 200/210kg. However, I think this thread is a good goal to set myself. It will be good to follow everyones progress.
