I tried to start with my hips a bit higher so I didn't raise my ass up first, though it still does a little bit. Much less than my other videos I think. I'm aware I probably don't lean back quite far enough for the lockout. I probably had 10 in my but my traps started cramping a bit.

Any suggestions?

Looks GOOOOOD, real strong. Only thing I'd say is what you already know, to work on lockout.

Thanks. That will just require a mental adjustment more than anything.

Berfles, that is just the way YOU deadlift. There are certain protocols that we should all adhere to but when it comes down to it, there are other aspects that you just go with what works best for you.

Your back stays in the same position throughout, the bar is close, youre on your heels and they are fast. You could lock those out if you wanted to. I dont think its a weakness more that youre just not bothering lol.

Nice work big guy!

Thanks guys, always nice to know the form is still there when you add a bunch of weight to the bar.

Yeah I think you're right. It just doesn't feel right to me to lean back more, certainly not the hyper extension a lot of people do. I'm sure if I get the weight up that high I could lock it out better if need be, it's not like I'd get stuck there or anything :D

Eh?

Sorry, I have this stupid Firefox plugin which paginates the threads, so when I thought I was replying to a previous thread, it posted here.

Mixed.

It's all in my basement. I got my Powertec rack for $300, the bench was $99, 300lb Olympic set was $130. Since then I've added more weights and bought a Texas Power Bar, but the rest is pretty much unchanged.

I am beginning to need a new bench though.

How much do your clips weigh? That might be more than 435. Also, your thread title says 430, not 435.

Thanks guys. I'm on a deload week, and as usual, when I'm not lifting heavy I feel like I lose all my progress. I hate that feeling.

The LockJaws don't weigh much, probably like a pound combined. And yeah, I have a habit of messing up thread titles with weights, but it was 435lbs. I don't think I can edit the title anymore.

Copied from my other thread here:


I didn't really follow a specific diet, I just ate whatever (within reason) would get me to 6000 calories. I make two shakes that are 660 calories (milk, ice cream, carbo gain, whey) and one that is at or around 1600 calories (similar to the Bako shake in the Recipes section). Other staples for me are jasmine rice (300 calories worth), granola that I make (280 calories per 1/2 cup), and frosted mini wheats for breakfast. Two servings (48 mini wheats) plus milk total 500 calories. I also eat pop tarts (I don't care what they have in them, it's a quick 400 calories). Other than that I just eat normal dinner which for me is usually around 800-1000 calories, and I'll total all that up. If I won't be at 6000 I start eating anything I can get, or drink more milk. Maybe a peanut butter sandwich.

On days I don't feel like physically eating that much, I'll even make two of those bigger shakes.

435x8 is nothing to sneeze at! Very strong... maybe try sitting back/down a little more off the bat... just a hare.

Looks good otherwise and strong!

how long you been lifting for?

berfles

Lifting seriously and consecutively, about 2 years. I got my power rack in October of 2007, anything I did before that was child's play and really didn't help me much. Before the rack I was only repping 160 for bench, 250 for deadlift, and wasn't even squatting. I think shoulder presses were about 100lbs too.

Did you ever go for 500?

Nope :( Didn't feel into it enough to try. I was thinking of trying this weekend, but with me and maxing out it's not really something I like forcing, I have to actually feel like trying. I usually get the urge out of the blue and that's when I do best, less time to sit and think about it.
