In. I've hit 220kg/485lb which is 5 plates over here so my goal is to break 500 with my next true max attempt. Then I'll join the 600 thread purely for my deadlift, lol

If everything goes right, in 10 weeks I'll be hitting 520-540ish. Most I've done was 480 for a single. I'm not going to test it until this cycle's done but hopefully I'll be able to crush it!

So this will be the last video for me in this bad boy. On to 600! Competed in my first meet and managed a 502# pull. It felt good and know I could've pulled more. Can't wait to do another meet.

Ive been pulling 405 for like 2 years now. Maybe once every 4-6 weeks to make sure I could still do it, sometimes going over and got 435 and 455 here and there. I brought my front squat to 315 and back squat up to 405 for 1 rep high bar and deep during this period, tho. This makes me hopeful that now that I am focusing on PL strength again, and specifically the DL, I will rip through to 500 in a short period. I start working deads in again next week to get that 5th plate! Then I can coast for 2 more years while I pursue my next 3 goals lol.

I saw this thread a few months ago and it inspired me to go for it! My deadlift was estimated at about 435 at the time. I trained hard and this past thursday I pulled 495 for the first time! I would appreciate constructive criticism

After fixing my hideous form and working back up, I pulled new conventional pb at 200kg / 440lbs last week. Legs were a tad shaky but I probably had another 20lbs in me. This puts me well on track for 227.5kg/500lb by mid year. Hopefully!

My first day back DLing regularly went well today. Ive been sick for like 14 of the past 20 days and just got back in the gym, and hit 425 for 1. My legs are strong and I can rip it off the floor but the lockout is gonna be the weak point moving forward. Funny I had the opposite situation back when I brought my DL up to 405.

I am not looking forward to walking tomorrow.

Hit a PR @ 491 after not going heavy in 3~ months whilst running smolov for squat. Was probably more like 493 with the heavy collars.. either way, my next attempt will probably be 227.5/502. Should fall pretty soon even if I run smolov again as I plan to.

I'm in. Pulled 370x4 yesterday. Projected 420ish max i think, but don't go for singles often. Hoping to get 495 as fast as possible. Pulling conventional, running High Frequency Strength Work 4x a week, with one 'heavy' day of DL'ing in the 3-5 rep range once a week.

I'm done! Pulled 230kg(507) easy last week when testing my max. Probably could have got more but was happy with a big 20kg pr.
