Awesome pulling. Just out of curiosity why do you make note that you aren't wearing a belt?

Because I'm not wearing a belt. ;)

Since I am a powerlifter and we use a ton of different equipment, I usually like to note what I was or wasn't using on a certain lift. I can deadlift more with a belt on, so I have PRs set with a belt and without.

Ah I see. I always wear a belt too. I just thought the note was there because the lack of a belt affected your lift!

It did, you can lift more with a belt.

that's awesome Chris. Maybe the 2xBW DL contest wasn't such a good idea...

How many could you do if you didn't do the touch & go? I'm just curious, I always used to do them that way so long as I made sure I didn't bounce the weight back up and kept it controlled, but then I read about letting it actually rest on the ground for awhile before the next rep. I've been doing them that way for a few weeks now and it seems a lot harder, unless my initial pull is just weaker because I did the others for so long.

Great lifting. You set me a challenge to see how many I can do next year (currently 5@315).

How much difference does a weight belt make?

I think I can pull about 30-40lbs more with a belt (for one rep).

Thanks everyone. I posted a video from earlier this year where I did 335x17 reps with a belt. During that set I didn't go touch and go. I think for me the reps would be very close since I am strong off the floor. I have been experimenting with doing them this way to see if I can bring up my weakness from the knees up.

Ah, I see. I remember hearing something about it depending on how strong you were throughout the pull, meaning if you're weak off the floor you should let it come to a total rest and if not try touch and go. My initial pull sucks balls, I'm sticking full stops for awhile. Either way, nice video. Hopefully I can get there some time, I did 255x16 before my grip started going :)

Awesome job Chris. I hope you're still around IPA's on Sunday. It'd be good to meet you. Great DLing.

Pretty sick pulling.

WRT this:

Would you say that there is more or less a percentage added on or taken off when bring a belt into the equation?

Like if you had tried that with a belt, in the same manner(tough and go), do you think you might predict what you would have gotten based off this attempt?

Sounds like you are well on your way. Have you tried anything else to strengthen your pull from the floor?


Awesome job Chris. I hope you're still around IPA's on Sunday. It'd be good to meet you. Great DLing.

Thanks Rhodes. I'll find out by the end of this week if my training partner is still competing. As always, we started out with 5-6 people doing the meet and now we are down to maybe 1, lol. I hope to be there though.

I am not sure. It may be about the same because in a case like this it comes down to conditioning. I'm not sure I could keep pulling for much longer and it's hard to breathe in a belt for that many reps.

I'm not too sure how to improve my initial pull other than to try doing them from a complete rest for every rep. Maybe I'll Google around to see if I can find out, unless you'd like to tell me ;)

I just started doing them this way a week or two ago, and I can finally lift again tomorrow (took a week off) so I'm going to add another 5lbs and start deadlifting again.

The gym network I go to doesn't seem to attract keen deadlifters, at this gym network, I have never seen anyone deadlift more than me. The only time I've seen someone deadlift more than me was when I visited the local power lifters gym. However when I look at the lifts that you guys do, you leave me for dead.
