View Full Version : Deadlift 605+120 PR

09-29-2011, 06:17 AM

20lb PR

605 against purples (approx 120lb) off 1.25" mats.

Form was off on pretty much every set making it harder than it should have been but I still had fun and got a PR.

Very nice, I'd be happy with the 605 & no bands. Wearing a squat suit there?

Thanks bro if form was better that would have moved pretty quick but I was not on song.

It is a deadlift suit with legs cut off, I will get a "real one" soon.

-1 for all of you knowing who it even was

Nice lift, next time I'd probably put the bands on the inside. They don't look like they are on much of the collar and if one was to slip off that could be a bit of a disaster

I have never used one of the new deadlift shirts or suits, only ever tried a squat suit way back, which did little or nothing to help. Though I usually lift raw, I wonder how much help this gear might give me. I deadlift in conventional style, and from what I've seen, sumo guys seem to like the gear more, some sumo guys even using wraps to deadlift, which seems a bit strange to me

Most of the guys who pull sumo wear more gear because they can get down to the bar a little easier. If you were to try and wear that gear conventional it probably wouldn't work out super well. Better to get your hands on a conventional DL suit

Holy crap I just rewatched it and those bands were right on the edge of the collar! Listen to Travis' suggestion!

Thanks Christian Iron, Rob, Dank, Travis, Chris!!

The bands are stuck like glue but I will put them in a little next time to be sure, thanks guys.

And yeah the music in my gym can be pretty funny but I have headphones on 90% of the time :) thats actually kinda a hobby of mine, going into shops and testing every single pair of headphones ha ha........for the money get some Shure 440s!

Good lift..... I like that you rocked the plates all the way out for that extra spring..... that's a cool plateau buster.
