Tried on my Metal deadlift suit again for the first time in a while, must have been out of position or something but still managed to fight through and get the lockout... pulled 685 lbs @ 210 lbs.


Here is the full training video, includes a front squat and some log work:


And we had a special guest lifter stop by as well...

Thanks guys, the little kid in the last video did a timed hang the other day and ended up crushing all of the strongmen on hand. We mostly ended up losing it around 1 minute and he was able to go over 2 1/2 minutes without breaking a sweat!

Hopefully a 700 lbs pull is just around the corner for me once I can learn that suit...

That is one of the most unique style of hitching I have ever seen lol. Hey if you lock it out you lock it out!

Not sure about this, but does that deadlift pass in Strongman??? Because I know there are different rules when it comes to hitching and not lowering the bar, bringing it up some more, lowering it, bringing it up some more.

So does that kind of deadlift pass strongman comp?

You threw that log around like nothing. Nice work!

All Legs - It would count in Strongman compeition, as long as you get to a complete lockout it doesn't matter how you get there. As Reko said that was a unique technique... not sure how it happened but I think that I was out of position - didn't give up though since I had it past my knees though and still had some pull left in me.

Thanks Mike. Was my first time trying that one-motion technique and I think it will allow me to hit some high rep counts with lighter weights since it saves a lot of time.

Crazy stuff. Ace pull and some crazy log pressing!

New video from last weekend - hit a 325 lbs log at about 210 lbs bodyweight with perhaps a little more in the tank...


I guess that "Results" stuff really works.
