Most of the lifters in the 165 pound class will be pulling between 405-595 pounds.

Move it to Massachusetts and I'll be there. If not, I'll have to wait for the video.

What ranges do you think the 132 lb class will be pulling? I don't plan on entering, I'm just interested for future reference.

Seanzilla

Most 132 men's open class deadlifters pull around 315-465. Judy Sverchek will probably pull around 500 at 132 and Richard Hawthorne will pull around 585 at 127. These are two of the best deadlifters in the world though.
If you live in the SE corner of the USA, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW! It is gonna totally rock and, whether you want to lift (all lifters at all levels are very welcome) or just chill and check out the heavy iron action, you should get out to Orlando on May 1st.

Yah, Richard Hawthorne is crazee! At the 2003 WABDL Worlds, he deadlifted 580.7 in the 132 pound class (and he's only 19 years old) and, at the 2003 GNC Show of Strength, he squatted 550 pounds, benched almost 300 pounds and deadlifted just over 560 pounds in the 132 pound class! Richard Hawthorne and Nick Hatch (one of Becca Swanson's lifters) are the only two teenagers in history to qualify for, and compete in, the 3 lift WPO World Championships at the Arnold Classic.

Biggimp,

You're doing just fine pulling 425 at 220 and at 17 years of age. At the WABDL World Deadlift Championships, the placings for the 16-19 year old 220 class went like this:

1st Place - Ashley John Roberts 540 pounds
2nd Place - Mike Prothman 457 pounds
3rd Place - Timmy Peterson 451 pounds
4th Place - Adam Contreras 363 pounds

Remember, those were the top four placings at the world championships!

At the 2003 WABDL Deadlift World Championships, in the Men's 220 Open Class, 10th place was 556 pounds and 1st place was 771 pounds.

The 1st place finisher was Brandon "C4" Cass and he'll also be competing at the Rise Of The Dead in Orlando! Deadlift fans won't want to miss this show!

KiMeKal,

If, at 165 pounds and a low 8% bodyfat, you're benching 190x1 (freeweight), deadlifting 285x1 (freeweight) and then "smith machine squatting" 420x5, you might want to consider the following:

Switch from squatting in a smith machine to squatting in a power rack. Learn to squat below parallel (your butt or, better yet, your hips should go lower than the top of your knees.) By training in a power rack, you'll still be able to train safely, but you'll also then be training more of your stabilizer muscles. Also, by breaking parallel, you'll really be bringing the glutes into play and building a lot more strength and muscle. Smith Machine squats can be made to be difficult, but they don't translate over to functional strength like freeweight squats do. When you first make this lift/style switch, you may find that your 1RM in the squat goes down to 225-315 but, by checking your ego at the door, you'll be building a lot more muscle!

Keep drinking those protein shakes,
Seanzilla

wow that seems kind of low for world championships... the state powerlifting meet i went to had 3 181 weight class lifters pull 500... and thats just nebraska... i think its just lack of participation why those numbers are so low. and i plan on pulling 450 in the 220 weight class on saturday, wish me luck, thats a huge personal best if i get it.

That was for the 16-19 year olds.

The winner of the open 220 deadlift class pulled a 771. (Brandon "C4" Cass)

The winner of the open 181 class pulled a 710. (Tom Eiseman)

The WABDL Worlds had over 700 lifters competing in it and it's the largest world championships (in regards to number of lifters) in the world.

The bands Born Into Kaos and Mercy Drive will be putting on a free rock concert the Friday night of the tradeshow. That should make the weigh-ins more fun. :alcoholic

You can check out the bands via their management's website.

Snow,

Girls are very welcome to compete and a lady deadlifting 275 pounds is great! Having women compete at a powerlifting contest makes the show much better (chillin with just a bunch of guys is boring, LOL.) C'Mon down and deadlift and we'll cheer you on! :)
