PR left 20lb in the tank.

I used a conventional suit with the legs cut off, straps very loose.

Bodyweight 217.

May want to fast forward to the lift lol, not sure how to edit.

Nice pull, did it feel fully locked out? Its hard to tell from watching from the back.

Yeah 700lbs pull pretty soon I think, is that a standard bar or DL bar? I get a pretty big carryover at the meet because of the bar.

Looked really strong man...... but I saw what selk saw too...... it could just be the sweat pants, or it could be that you are leaning back so hard at the top your knees unlock....... hard to tell from this angle. Better to catch it now than at a meet...... either way, great pull.

Thanks Selk!

Yeah I did feel locked out but looks like it may not be in the video, Ill see next time.

Yeah standard stiff bar, look forward to a bar with some flex!

Yeah I just re watched it, looks like it could be the lean back........ill make sure next time though.

Strong steady pull Nick!!

Do your trackie bottoms not bunch up and cause more friction?

No I hear people talk about it but have not noticed.

Definitely not a question of strength, just a small tweak to make sure some super-anal " wish this were the IPF" judge doesn't red light you for not locking out......


Especially if that's a stiff bar, that's a great pull..... I get around 30lbs more from a bar with some whip to it.....

Go find a gym with a Texas DL bar and pull 7!!!

Yes the bar is very stiff, no gyms anywhere near me with powerlifting bars.......I will buy an Okie or Texas for my next birthday.

Lots to work on but I have found what works........at least for now.

I'm really suprised your pull is so strong since you're a good bencher too; very rare to have both of those.

I know what you mean.

Thanks again bro!!
