Solid! No hitch at all, no bar wavering and a strong arch all the way through. I'd say you've got 425 in you!

In my opinion nothing in weight lifting looks better than a smooth, steady sumo dead lift with good form.

Nice lift.

You're on!

Thanks a lot, but considering I failed on 415 the following set, I'd say 425 is out of reach as of now.

I tried to get 405 today, I got it just past my knees then my grip gave out.

Good job man, you're stronger than me, and I've got 30 lbs on you.

Again, great pull man. I need some advice. So last week I pulled 365 x 4 (after failing a 400 pull the week before), and I'll be pulling again this Friday. I'm thinking of working with 375 and going for 3-4 reps. If I get at least a triple, do you think I should attempt 405 the following week? You pulled 375 x 4 before you pulled 405 right? I mean I know strength isn't as linear as basic mathematic comparisons like that and there are other factors to take into account, but I'm just wondering what you think of the situation. Thanks bro.

If you can pull 375x4 and you reset each rep, then yes, you have 405 in you and you could go for it the following week. If you get 2-3 reps, I wouldn't go for it just yet and keep playing around with weights in the 90%+ range for 3-5 reps. Don't rush it though, that can **** with you mentally and will affect your overall training.

Awesome job man!!! Especially at your weight of 170. The 4 pps is definately a huge milestone for deads....now onto 7 pps!!

Hm, alright. So until I'm ready I shouldn't go for any more 1RM's? As far as training efficiency, is training singles not as effective as training triples in your opinion?

Thanks, broseph. I'm thinking about skipping 7 and just going for 8 pps.

You can go for a 1RM soon or you can wait a while until you're completely confident you can hit 405 - it's completely up to the individual. Some people take their chances, others need to be sure before attempting it. Training heavy singles every week will quickly lead to over-training your CNS. I like to pull a heavy single when I'm feeling good that day or I have a certain number in my head all day that I can't ignore. I'd suggest the same to you, too.
