View Full Version : Proud of my little brother

01-19-2010, 09:42 AM
My brother has only been working out for 4 weeks. I'm teaching him PL'ing methods versus that of bodybuilding as he is mainly interested in strength. Last night he pulled a 405, so having only been lifting for a few weeks I think he is doing very well. He is about 6'2 and 200 pounds. Seems he has a natural talent for deadlifting. Not really a point to this post other than I am proud of his early accomplishments.

That is really nice, 405 for a few weeks training is quite well, just make sure he is careful and doesn't hurt himself since his body probably isn't used to that weight. My little brother never lifted until recently in a weightlifting class, within a month he was deadlifting 330 at 135 lb body weight. But then he hurt his back, kid just tried too hard. Sad part is the doctor was an idiot and told him to stop lifting completely, the back injury was minor and he could have done therapy throughout his recovery and even lifted with the rest of his body, I tried to tell him he would be alright but he listened to the doctor like he knew everything.

Anyways hate to ramble and detract, but if your brother keeps working at it he really could have a high deadlift starting from there, tell him to keep up the good work.

Will you come teach me how to deadlift? I don't think I will be deadlifting 405 for a while.... though I did do 315x5 a few days ago.

Hella nice lift. He should be real strong when he really gets used to moving heavy weights.

it's so awesome to watch people progress. i love when i get people on a non lame program and teach them form and then boom there lifts go up and it's just nice to see how happy they become.
