Well, just what the title says. I pulled 600 in conventional style with nothing but hand chalk. I had a bit more in me as well.

cool but what's with all the little hip-bobs before the pull? Just getting into your groove? something else?

Chris, I know you're wife is on the left side lifting it, I can't believe you tried to pull this :p

The gyrations are just my way of mentally preparing for the lift. It is a bit comical I admit.

A bit comical???

Nice lift, Chris. But I really think you should take it easy for awhile so you don't aggrevate your back. ;)

I'm surprised at how high your hips are when you start the lift. Seems like it's all back, and very little leg drive. Is this how most people do their deadlifts? For some reason, I'd imagine your hips starting lower, so you could use more leg drive, but then again, I don't deadlift.

That is a common misconeption in the deadlift. The muscles that deadlift big weights are: Hamstrings, Back, and Hips. Not your quads. I think Chris had a very good stance.

Deadlift style is very individual. Some people use much more leg drive and other much more lower back.

I really don't see how you could ever use more leg than back on deadlift. Using your back is simply more efficient.

jesus christ, just watched the video, and god damn you were using soo much back you could have almost called that a straight legged deadlift! :eek:

this thread should be renamed "chris' a$$!"

lol good lift man, made my back hurt just watchin.

i personally start with more leg drive to get the weight up then pull up from there, but as you say, very indivual lift.

LMAO, I cracked up when I read that. Couldnt help but laugh @ that one.

I tried downloading the video but for some damn reason it wouldnt let me watch it. From what I've seen from other comments you had a curve in your back & used all back while lifting 600. Put you in a powerlifting suit & keep your back straight I'd be willing to bet you'd break 700. From previous pics I've seen you have one hell of a back on ya. Good job on the lift even though I didnt get to see it.

Well, I don't think I would be busting 700 as of quite yet, but who knows? I have never tried a deadlift suit, it might help me quite a bit.

In any event, I don't think it is quite as extreme as is being represented here.

You need to have QuickTime in order to watch the video. That may be your problem J.

Thank you. Actually, I am in the process of trying to reverse that trend a bit. I want to add 10 lbs or so. Unfortunately not all of it will be muscle...

The suit helps people different ways. Everyone gets more weight, but some vary in gains. Personally I was a suit lifter. My max would be like 510-520, but I broke 600 on several occassions with a suit & belt. My best lift was 620 weighin in at 197.5 pounds :). You're a good bit bigger than me, so I'd bet you'd get close to 7, especially if you have a problem keeping your back straight. I have the same problem. Get a tight suit & it will make you keep your back straight.

Yeah I dont have Quicktime. I think I have every other media player but Quicktime to tell you they truth. But thats prolly the problem.

Later Bro,
J

man 700 would be sick. Your vids are motivating, right now my goal is 500. I got quite a while to go.
